I love a good DIY gift. Making Christmas DIY gifts for people just feels really nice! I have a great, quick, and easy gift that you can make for friends and family this holiday season. Most people love to receive something to pamper themselves. I do enjoy the occasional massage or manicure but I can’t make it out to those places as much as I’d like. However, I am able to set some time out of my evening to enjoy a little at home pampering. This Merry Mint Bath Soak is the perfect gift to give all those friends and family members something to pamper themselves with at home! I especially love packaging this easy bath salts recipe in a plastic ornament. It is so fun and festive!
Easy Bath Salts Recipe
Supplies Needed To Make Homemade Bath Salts:
- Epsom Salt
- Fractionated Coconut Oil
- Young Living Peppermint Essential Oil
- Young Living Spearmint Essential Oil
- Optional: Spirulina Powder (for green color)
- Measuring Spoons
- Clear Plastic Ornament
How To Make Easy Bath Salts For Sore Muscles:
Grab your small mixing bowl and your spoon. Measure out 1/4 tsp of your spirulina powder and add to the bowl. *Spirulina is an edible algae that is really good for you but can also be used to color items green naturally. Since I like to make 100% natural products, I use this green powder instead of food coloring. Spirulina powder can be found at any health food store or on Amazon. Add 1-2 tsp of your liquid coconut oil to the spirulina powder. You want to add just enough to turn your powder into a liquid. Next, add 1/2 C of epsom salt and mix in with your coconut oil/spirulina mixture. This will turn your salts a light green color!
After your bath salts are all mixed up, you want to add 3 drops of your Young Living Peppermint essential oil and 3 drops of your Young Living Spearmint essential oil. Both of these essential oils are great for opening up the sinuses through aromatherapy and easing muscle tension and pain. Stir everything together and then transfer into your ornament. If you have a small funnel, you could use that to easily get your bath salts into the ornament or you could transfer them into a measuring cup and pour them in that way.
After filling your ornament up, grab some festive ribbon and add a bow for the finishing touch to your Christmas DIY gifts! These homemade bath salts would make great stocking stuffers or package 2-3 of them together to make a great gift for a friend. I like to tie one onto the front of a gift to add a little extra something. Do you think you might make this easy bath salts recipe this holiday season?
