Homemade Lavender Bath Salts

 DIY Lavendar Bath Salts

‘Tis the season for homemade gifts! I have decided this year to make my own gifts for our families. I was excited to start scouring the internet for ideas, but I also wanted them to be simple enough that I wouldn’t feel overwhelmed as I counted on two hands the number of family members I had to make gifts for. There is definitely no need for extra stress during the holiday season and gift giving should be fun, right?

After some searching I decided on our gifts for the ladies: hand sewn coffee cozies & bath salts. Immediately, I knew I wanted to make lavender  bath salts. I just love the calming soothing scent of lavender.

I was very inspired by Lia Griffith – Handcraft your life, she created some lavender salts that she then displayed in beautiful apothecary jars with custom labels. She also shared a link to a free printable! I loved her font style but had decided I would be using tags so I created my tags with her same font.

Are you ready to make some easy and fun holiday gifts? Let’s get started.

First things first gather your ingredients…

This recipe will make enough for 2 jars depending on the size so you can easily double or triple this recipe to make a large batch for gifts as I did.

Most importantly though don’t forget to make some extra for yourself…

Place your ingredients in a glass bowl and mix well. I’m not sure if there is any scientific data to back this theory but I thought a plastic bowl may absorb the oil?

Making Bath Salts

Pour your bath salts into your jars.

Now I recently purchased these Jingle Bells and Candy Cane twine and have been excited to finally use them , so I used these to make my jars a bit fancy and ready for Christmas gift giving.

I added a little bit of writing to a cardstock tag
