How to Make Homemade Bath Salts For Gifts

These Homemade Bath Salts Recipes are a quick and easy way to pamper yourself with an ultra-relaxing bath. They make the perfect gifts too.

As you have probably seen all over Pinterest, making bath salts are an easy, inexpensive and fabulous gift idea too. You need some simple ingredients and about 5 minutes of your time to create a Mother’s Day Gift, or Teacher Appreciation gift that says take a few minutes for yourself and relax in a warm tub!

Who wouldn’t welcome that invitation? Plus this is so easy the kids can make them too. I would just give them specific essential oils combinations…

A few years ago I hosted a spa party for my girlfriends. I had stations where they made bath salts and a sugar scrub for taking homes. This would be a fun party too.

Needless to say, making homemade bath salts for gifts could not be simpler and easy to make in bulk for a party favor or teacher gift.
