I love making homemade gifts.  You loved the DIY Body Butter and Salt Scrub, so I just had to share this easy recipe for DIY Bath Salts that is sure to make the perfect gift for that special someone.


This recipe is so easy to make, in fact, my 9 & 6-year-old daughters were able to make these gifts with just a little help from mom.



  • Glass Containers
  • 1 cup Epsom salts
  • 10 drops essential oils (for these recipes I used lavender and wild orange for some and lavender and citrus bliss for others)

I use dōTERRA essential oils when making my bath salts.

To make this great homemade gift, just mix 1 cup Epsom Salts with 10 drops of your favorite essential oil(s) and store in a sealed glass jar.



For the Diy bath salts labels, I just used sticker labels, traced circles on them and wrote on them with a sharpie marker.

It does not have to be super fancy, the gift will speak for itself.


You can learn more/purchase dōTERRA essential oils here.

You may also like to make this DIY Salt Dough handprint gift – you can put essential oils on it too.

These would make for excellent homemade gifts too! I imagine my daughter would love to make these and give them to her friends too!
