DIY Rose Bath Salt

DIY Rose Bath Salt

I have always been a fan of baths. Now that I am a mother to two young children, baths have become my time to relax and reflect on the day. I love to elevate baths by lighting a candle, with bubbles, or by adding salt to help soothe achy and tired muscles. I love this simple DIY bath salt recipe because you can customize it to your favorite scent, and it only requires three ingredients. It would also make the perfect Galentine's Day gift for all of your best friends. 

I accented my bath salt with roses, because I love the smell and the beautiful color it creates. However, as I mentioned above you can use whatever combination your heart desires. It would be fun to incorporate dried lavender flowers with lavender oil, or dried rosemary with rosemary oil. The possibilities are endless! *However, before you experiment please do your proper research as all oils are not created the same, and are not all safe for skin contact.

To make one 16 oz mason jar serving of the DIY rose bath salt, you will need: 

  • 1 1/2 cups Pure Epsom Salt. Since you are adding your own scents to the salt it is important to start with pure epsom salt, and not a product that already has ingredients added to it.
  • Rose Petals from 1 Rose
  • 10 drops of Rosewater Concentrate. You can use pure rosewater or rose oil, but I felt this cheaper option was just as effective.
  • 16 oz Mason Jar with a Lid
  • Embellishments:

    Step 1: Add rose petals, 10 drops of rosewater, and 1 1/2 cups of epsom salt to a food processor. 

    *Please note, you can experiment and add more oil to intensify the smell. I found 10 drops was enough to add a hint of scent without overpowering the water, and overwhelming my gift receivers as this project was intended as a gift for my friends.

    Step 2: Cover and secure the food processor. Mix all ingredients until they become fine, and are blended together. And voila! you are done! It makes the prettiest shade of pale pink. 

    *Since your food processor is probably intended to be used with food, ensure you thoroughly clean all food processor parts several times after this project.

    Step 3: Add your bath salt to the 16 ounce container and embellish the container to your heart's desire. I believe the bath salt is a beautiful presentation on its own. Therefore, I kept it simple by adding some texture and hot gluing velvet ribbon to the rim of the mason jar lid. I then personalized the top by using a simple heart sticker. 

    I hope you enjoy experimenting and gift giving with this simple recipe. Happy Valentine's Day!
