Lemon Lavender Bath Salts In a Jar

7 Materials
1 Hour

This lemon lavender bath salts in a jar is so easy to make. It's packaged in an adorable mason jar hanging ornament, so it's ready for gifting. This is a very basic recipe, so it's perfect for beginners. This makes a great inexpensive teacher gift.

The jars for these cute bath salts are what makes this such a cute Christmas gift. You can get them on Etsy or on Amazon.

You'll also need:

2 cups Epsom salts

1.5 cups sea salt

20 drops lemon essential oil

20 drops lavender essential oil

2 tablespoons dried lavender flowers

2 tablespoons dried lemon peel

Yellow soap colorant or food coloring

Combine the Epsom salt and sea salt in a bowl.

Then add the dried lavender flowers and the dried lemon peel.

Add the essential oils and yellow colorant. Stir well.

Spoon them into jars. This recipe made 3 mason jar ornaments. You can double or triple to recipe to make more.

I used lemon and lavender essential oils. They are popular oils, so most people have them in their collections. You can use a different essential oil if you want. Just use the same amount of oils per batch.

I think the jars make the gift because they are so cute. You can also use a mason jar or other container to gift these in. Note that an 8 ounce mason jar will be bigger, so you'll need to add more salts or double the batch.

    Is this used for body scrub?

      No, it's to soak in the Bath. The Salts melt quickly.

    I am wondering if you could take a little needle and poke holes in it to actually smell the oils in it or add some of that fake snow stuff to make it look like a snow ball?

      You can make a dash to smell. Use the dried flowers, dried Kemon peel and the Essential oils. Mix them together and put in a dash bag. You won't need as much Essential though since you dont have all that Salt. Just use a few drops if each. To your liking, essentials oils are very concentrated so you won't need much.
