Moisturizing Bath Salts

I wanted to make a little treat for my sisters and sisters-in-law for Mother's Day so today I'm making bath salts scented with lavender essential oils. The recipe is below.

  • 4 cups sea salt (I found mine in the bulk section of the health food store)
  • 2 cups baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon vitamin E
  • 40 - 60 drops essential oil

Mix well, divvy up into clear bags, and tie with a pretty ribbon.

Thank you for the recipe for the bath salts! I like that you used vitamin E oil vs. vegetable glycerin.

Thanks for the recipe. I've read that shea butter is a good moisturizer and I've seen bath salt recipes with shea butter in them so that might be a good fit. Although I have no idea on how to actually do it maybe aside from mixing it directly.

I do this with my PreK class every year!! I make mine with Epsom Salts, vitamin E, essential oils* and a few drops of food color!! (*freesia, vanilla, lavender, etc....) Kids can pick which scent and color for their mom....
