One of my resolutions for the new year is to invest in more “me” time. I always notice that if I prioritize time to take care of myself that everything else just seems to go smoother, is it the same for you? Well, one way I love to relax and de-stress is to take an awesome quiet bath! We have a huge soaker tub and I love to glam it up with candles, break out my bath pillow and add yummy bath bombs and soaks. And since that stuff can really add up financially, I did some research on how to make YOUR OWN bath products like these DIY Vanilla Bath Salts!
What you’ll need:
- 1 cup Epsom Salts
- 1 tbsp Baking Soda
- 5+ drops Vanilla Essential Oil
- Food coloring to tint salts (optional)
And the steps:
- Add the epsom salts and baking soda to a small bowl.
- Top with 5 drops of vanilla essential oil (or more if desired) and stir until salt, baking soda and oils are combined.
- Add food coloring if desired to tint the salts; this may be preferred if you are gifting but is not necessary if you’re creating for your own bath.
At this point, if you’re using at home, transfer the salts to a jar and seal to keep fresh until use. You’ll want to use about a half cup of salts for a full bath. If you’re looking to gift these DIY Vanilla Bath Salts, you might want to add a little brown food coloring like I did here to give the salts a little color.
