Don't underestimate the power of a mineral-rich soak to revive and rejuvenate after a long day. If you don't have a natural hot spring in your backyard, no problem—you can easily turn your own bathtub into a relaxing spa with some homemade lavender scented bath salts. Here's the super-easy way to make it yourself.
What You Need:
- 3 cups Epsom salt
- 2 cups sea salt
- ½ ounce lavender oil
- food coloring
Step 1: Combine the Epsom and sea salts in a large bowl.
Step 2: Pour in the lavender oil and mix until totally incorporated. Pro tip: Use your hands to really get in there and ensure that everything is well combined.
Step 3: Pour half the mixture into a separate bowl.
Step 4: Add 5 to 7 drops of food coloring to one bowl and stir until evenly distributed.
Step 5: Use a scooper or spoon to alternate pouring the colorful and plain mixtures into a mason jar.
Stow by your tub and sprinkle in ¼ cup next time you need some serious R&R.
