Relaxing Lavender Bath Salts – Only 2 Ingredients!

Spring has sprung!  Oh, and has it sprung in a big way!  And brought with it baseball games, practice, school assignments, birthdays and events.  Fun, no doubt, but some days, it is a little overwhelming.  Enter relaxing lavender bath salts!  Add a scoop to your warm bath water to relax the day away!

Relaxing lavender bath salts - only 2 ingredients!

Are you ready for the easiest, most relaxing DIY?  There are only two ingredients – epsom salts and Young Living lavender essential oil! See, nothing to stress over ;)

Relaxing lavender bath salts with Young Living lavender essential oils!

Relaxing Lavender Bath Salts/Foot Soak

In a glass bowl (or large zip close bag), mix together 1/2 cup of epsom salt and 10 drops of Young Living lavender essential oil. Stir/mix to combine and store in a sealed glass jar – it’s a mason jar in our house, naturally!  Dark glass is best, but I tucked a mason jar of these lavender bath salts under my sink where it is dark and cool.  Add about 1/4 cup to  warm running bath water or a spoonful to a deep bowl if you are soaking your feet. Epsom salts are detoxifying, so drink lots of water before and after a soak!

Relaxing lavender bath salts - easy gift!

A prettily packaged jar of lavender bath salts would make a wonderful gift for teachers, neighbors or for Mothers’ Day!  To make my lavender bath salts giftable, I stamped a kraft tag with a leafy branch and the contents of the jar and tied it around the mason jar with pretty purple twine.  You can jot down the instructions on the back of the tag with a quick to/from.

Lavender is one of my very favorite essential oils!  We have been diffusing it with lemon and peppermint essential oils, I add a few drops to a damp wash cloth and tumble it in our dryer with our linens and I have been adding a few drops mixed with coconut oil (my all-time favorite moisturizer) at bedtime.  It smells absolutely divine, too.

  1. These salts are calling my name!

  2. mmm,,, lavender! The bath salts is a great use for the oils- I love essential oils!

    I need to get some of the lavender. Also going to get some other elements as they will help with my lymphedema. I had no idea there was something in oils that could help that condition. I’m lucky as my leg isn’t grossly swollen but is painful and can’t wear many shoes due to swelling. Hard to get winter boots also due to larger calf. Would be wonderful to get some relief for it. I’ll have to use our guest bath tub as our master bath has a garden tub, use way too much water just to get little bit of water in it.

  4. Mmmm, I love me some bath salts, and lavender would be perfect! Definitely pinning this so I can try it later!

  5. This does sound like a great gift to prepare for some of the ladies I know! Thanks for the inspiration. I’m glad I found your post through the Make Bake Create Wednesday link party.

  6. I love essential oils and lavender! I’m going to make these for the ladies I workout with!

  7. So simple and elegant! What a great project! I hope to try this soon.

  8. In the instructions, does “1/2 Epsom salt” mean 1/2 cup or half of a package of the salts?

  9. Hi Keri! I’m teaching my first EO class on Friday and wanted to make Lavender epsom salts to give away. I was so excited to see you’re a Lemon Dropper. Just wanted to say hi from one Lemon Dropper to another. :-)
