Moisturizing Peppermint Bath Salt Recipe

Moisturizing Peppermint Bath Salt Recipe: Great for a last minute Christmas gift or a refreshing soak in the tub | The Chilly Dog
It seems like this holiday season has been busier than years past. Maybe it's because there was less than a month between Thanksgiving and Christmas. or because much of my focus has been on my blog projects. (Maybe it was because I was a slacker and put off my Christmas shopping until the last minute.) Your guess is as good as mine.

If the holidays have you feeling a little stressed, this post is for you because a sprinkle of peppermint bath salts into a steaming tub followed by a long quiet soak may be just what you need to unwind. And guess what, they are surprisingly simple to make. That's great news if you still need a last minute gift for someone.

(Not in the mood for peppermint? Keep reading, I'll also share a couple of my other favorite scent blends.)

Materials

 

  • pint glass canning jar
  • 2 cups of epsom salt (or other course bath salt)
  • 2 tablespoons of almond oil (or other carrier oil of your choice)
  • 7 drops each of peppermint and bergamont essential oils

 

Directions


Wash and dry your jar completely. You don't want there to be any moisture in the jar or your salts will begin to dissolve.

Pour the almond oil, 7 drops of peppermint oil and 7 drops of bergamont oil into a small bowl and stir them together.

If you are not a fan of peppermint you can add one of these blends to the almond oil instead:
  • Orange Spice - 6 drops of orange oil, 3 drops of bergamont oil and 3 drops of clove bud oil
  • Lavender - 8 drops of lavender oil, 4 drops of bergamont oil, 1 drop of peppermint oil
  • Sandalwood - 11 drops of sandalwood oil
Pour the oils over the salt. Stir until completely blended.

The labels look fancy, but here's the secret, black adhesive vinyl and my Silhouette Cameo die cut machine.

Once the jar is filled, put on the lid.

To use your bath salts, sprinkle about a half a cup into your bath as it's running and stir it up a bit. Then enjoy a refreshing soak in the tub.
