Floral Bath Salts

These bath salts make an amazing bath and are very rewarding after a long day at school, work or looking after the kids! Epsom salts are the main ingredient to these bath salts, hence the name. These can be purchased at your local pharmacy or soap supplies shop. Baking soda. Now if you have sensitive skin I suggest leaving this out although your salts won't work as well without them. But don't worry! Many times I have forgotten this and they still work amazingly! Also you'll need dried flower petals. You can make your own or buy them from you local craft or soap supplies shop such as  Spotlight. I dried my own but whatever is convenient for you! The Picture below is of salts I made and packaged for an old teacher (a fellow soap maker and awesome teacher) Mrs Holloway.

Floral Bath Salts

1 Cup Epsom Salts
2 Tablespoons Baking Soda
1/3 Cup Dried Flower Petals
Essential or Fragrant Oil (Use The Same Fragrance As Your Petals)
Liquid Soap Colorant (or small amounts of food colouring)


In a bowl mix Epsom Salts and Baking Soda.
Add Flower Petals and mix gently.
Add Essential/Fragrant oil and Colour to your preference.
Place in a jar, bag, or box and decorate.

This make great gifts for friends and family.

If you are going to mix petals try scents that compliment each other, such as violet and lavender or hibiscus and rose.
