Sadly though, body care products can be SO dang expensive:/! Which is why I thought it’d be fun to show you guys how to make your very own! It’s so easy, and the fun part is that you can customize it however you want:) AND it only takes minutes!
So let’s get started!! Here’s everything you’ll need to get your spa on;)!
2 Cups of Epsom Salt
1 Teaspoon Olive oil
1/4 Cup of body wash of your choice
Essential oil of your choice ( Make sure it’s one that’s safe for skin contact, as not all of them are!)
Food Coloring (Optional)
An empty, sealable jar
A medium sized bowl
- Start by mixing the Epsom salt and body wash together in a bowl (I used Sweet Pea by Bath & Body Works…one of my faves!) Make sure you mix it until there aren’t anymore clumps of salt!
- Now it’s time to add in your oils! For my essential oil, I actually chose my favorite composition from Aveda–Beautifying. It has a really nice bergamot and lavender scent to it, and went well with the Sweet Pea;)
- This step is totally optional, but I always think it’s fun to add some color to life! I added three drops of purple food coloring, and mixed until it was totally blended! It came out way more vibrant than I thought it would lol! But don’t worry, the color won’t rub off onto your skin!
- Allow some time for your bath salts to dry, then put it in your sealable jar! I tied a bow around mine, well, just because:)
To use your new bubbly bath salts, just add up to 1/4 cup to your running bath water.
Aaaaand say hello to total relaxation! It’s that easy.
Don’t forget to try out this simple recipe next time you’re in need of a spa night… I know you will just love it:) I think it would also make a GREAT gift idea, for this upcoming Holiday season!
BIG thank you for reading this little post, and I’m wishing you all a wonderfully serene week! ❤
