So far this is my absolute favorite natural homemade product that I’ve come up with! Homemade Natural Lavender Chamomile Bath Salt Soak. It smells absolutely amazing and is SO relaxing! You wouldn’t believe how simple these DIY recipes are and they make amazing and frugal gifts for the holidays, birthdays, and any other special occassions. I purchased cute 8 oz glass jars with lids from Walmart which came in an 12 pack for $7.50. (I LOVE these jars but they were too small.)
You’ll need 5 ingredients for this recipe:
*1 1/2 c. Coarse Sea Salt
*3/4 c. Epsom Salt
*1/4 c. Baking Soda
*5 drops Lavender Essential Oil (I highly Young Living essential oils as it’s 100% pure, although you can buy the cheap stuff on Amazon here)
*2 teabags of Chamomile Tea
In a bowl combine the coarse sea salt, epsom salt, and baking soda in a bowl. Add 5 drops of lavender essential oil and mix well. Once the lavender essential oil is mixed in well then cut open the chamomile tea bags and mix in the contents. Lavender is a fantastic essential oil to have on hand. We use it for everything from cuts and scrapes to congestion and allergies.
Discard the empty tea bag.
Mix together well.
Carefully pour the mixture into your containers. You can use a wide funnel if needed.
I printed out these free Lavender Bath Salts labels (even though technically it’s Lavender Chamomile Bath Salt) and tied some simple purple ribbon around the jar.
These are inexpensive to make and are beautiful for holiday gifts, teacher gifts, mother gifts, and any other special occasion that come up!
This recipe makes enough for three 8 oz. jars.
