Calming Lavender Bath Salts make for simple, affordable, and beautiful holiday gifts for anyone who deserves a little pampering.



  • 4 cups Epsom salts
  • 2 cup coarse or medium Himalayan sea salt
  • 60 drops lavender essential oil
  • 1/2 cup dried lavender flowers, optional

For packaging:


  1. In a large bowl, combine the Epsom salts and rock sea salt.
  2. Sprinkle the lavender essential oil over the salt, and toss very well to combine.
  3. Add in the lavender flowers, if using, and toss to incorporate.
  4. Divide the mixture into the half-pint storage jars and close.
  5. Print the labels, cut them out, and then fold in half. Using a small hole punch, punch a hole in the corner, then attach to the jar using twine. Tie on one sprig of lavender, and gift to someone you love!


  • To use: Dissolve 1 cup in a hot bath, relax and soak for at least 20 minutes.
  • Salt absorbs the moisture in the air, so these salts may begin to harden after a few weeks. Using an airtight jar (like the latch top jars we use here) will help, but if they do end up hardening, just use a fork to “fluff” them.
  • The lavender flowers will need to be rinsed off your body and the tub after using. If that extra step bugs you, just leave them out.
