The herbal bath salts we’re making today contain two of the most gentle, relaxing and calming herbs: lavender and chamomile (just the gentle aroma of them will make you feel like sighing, “ahhhhh…”)

We’re also including some oatmeal which is anti-inflammatory and moisturizing and Epsom salt, which is wonderful for replenishing our magnesium levels and producing a sense of calm and relaxation, especially right before bed!

 Two optional ingredients are lavender essential oil and /or Roman chamomile essential oil.  These will add a bit more natural fragrance to your bath salts.

One of my favorite parts of the Christmas season is making homemade gifts for my neighbors and loved ones!   It doesn’t need to be expensive or difficult!   I hope you give this one a try!  It’s so quick and easy and makes a wonderful gift!

Happy Holidays, friends!

Calming Herbal Bath Salts

Yields:  2, 1 cup containers.

What you’ll need: 

  • an electric coffee grinder or blender (a food processor will work but your herbs will not be as fine)

  • glass containers or jars for your finished bath salts

  • 2 tbsp dried chamomile flowers  (I purchase most of my herbs from Bulk Herb Store.)

  • 2 tbsp dried lavender flowers

  • 2 tbsp rolled oats

  • 2 cups Epsom salt

  • several drops of lavender essential oil or Roman Chamomile essential oil (optional)

Instructions: 

  • To an electric coffee grinder or blender, add the chamomile, lavender, and rolled oats.   Grinder or blend to a fine powder.

  • In a medium size bowl, combine the ground herbs with the Epsom salt and essential oil (if using.)

  • Pour into prepared glass containers or jars and seal tightly.

  • To use, pour 1/4 to 1/2 cup of the bath salts under running hot water for a full bath or use a handful if using for a foot soak.
