I never knew that making your own bath salts could be so easy! These would make wonderful homemade gifts for Mother’s Day or for a special friend’s birthday.

What you’ll need:

  • 3/4 cup Epsom Salts
  • 1/2 cup coarse sea salt
  • soap colouring
  • essential oil of choice
  • jar


  1. Combine Epsom salt and sea salt in a bowl and whisk.
  2. Add a few drops of essential oil and mix.
  3. Add a few drops of soap colouring and mix.
  4. Spoon mix into jar and it’s ready to gift.

  • What’s soap colouring? Where do you buy it?


  • This is great, miss 5 would love to do this together.


  • My two favourite oils are citronella and eucalpytus.
    I have never heard of soap colouring before.


  • oh these look so sweet and so easy to make – might get my daughter’s some supplies to make these up for friends and family for throughout the year – thanks for sharing

    • Rainbow colours look so pretty and perfect for presents.


  • Making bath salts is just so easy and they are so lovely too – a collection of coloured bath salts in jars in the bathroom looks so pretty.


  • How gorgeous do these look in their pretty little jars. Nothing like a soak in a hot bath with some Epsom salts after a busy day


  • A lovely idea for Mother’s Day,thanks!
