Relaxing scents

Make yourself a merry little Christmas. 24 days of gifts and makes to create a frugal home made Christmas.


Scented Bath Salts.

You will need:

Epson salts
Baking soda

Essential oils

Food coloring

Attractive glass bottles that keep out moisture

Ribbon and flower trims to match your scents.


In a large bowl, mix to combine 6 parts salt; 3 parts Epson salts, to soothe tired muscles and reduce inflammation; 1 part baking soda, to soften waters and alleviate skin irritation.

Add a few drops of essential oils ( Be sure to check for an allergic reaction first) and combine.

Add a few drops of food coloring to match the scent you place in your salts, for example, peppermint use green coloring, until you achieve the desired shade. Present the bath salts in a stoppered and labelled container to keep out moisture.  Add a gift of soap and a face washer as desired.

I hope everyone is having a good day or evening where ever you are.


  1. Shiralee, you are so productive you make me feel lazy. LOL! I love the colours of the little mat the bottle is on. Did you crochet it?

  2. How simple is that recipe! I had no idea. Again lovely in every way.

  3. I love the pastel colours Shiralee. Like many people these days we don't have a bath but these would be so pretty regardless.
