Need a quick DIY gift idea for a party or wedding favors? Then whip up these simple DIY Organic Bath Tea and Salt Soaks! The recipe for this bath tea and salt soak is made from all natural, organic ingredients so it’s great for your skin! Recipients will love this gift that offers a luxury spa experience at home!
Your first step is to create the bags for your bath tea and salt soak. To do this, you’ll need a rubber stamp of your choice, a permanent pigment ink pad, and some drawstring muslin cotton bags like the ones from State Line Bag Co. I used three 3.25″x5″ muslin bags for this project. Simply press the stamp onto the ink pad and then onto your bags for quick and easy decorative favor or gift bags. Now that you bags are finished, you just need to fill them up! Following is the recipe for making a wonderful blend of herbs and salts! I used certified organic ingredients from Mountain Rose Herbs for this recipe.
DIY Organic Bath Tea and Salt Soak Recipe
1/4 cup dead sea salt
1/4 cup Himalayan pink salt
1/2 cup Epsom salt
1/4 cup organic chamomile flowers
1/4 cup organic lavender flowers
1/4 cup organic comfrey leaf
1/8 cup organic passionflower
For the rest of this project you’ll need one glass container or mixing bowl, three plastic pipettes with mL markings, a long handled spoon, the ingredients for this recipe, a 1/4 measuring cup, 1/8 measuring cup, and three cotton muslin bags with a drawstring closure.
Measure out your dead sea salt, Himalayan pink salt and Epsom salt. Pour into a glass container or bowl.
Next, measure out your essential oils using a pipette with mL markings using a different pipette for each oil. Then add your essential oils one at a time to the salts and mix well. (Pictured above: I’ve mixed in my essential oils and just started to mix in the calendula petals.)
Measure out your organic herbs and them into the salt mixture. Stir well so that they are thoroughly incorporated.
Now spoon your bath tea and salt soak mixture into your decorated muslin bags. Keep stirring the bath tea and salt soak with a spoon as you go so the salts don’t all settle to the bottom. This way each bag will have an even mixture of salts and herbs.
Once you fill your bags simply pull the strings on the muslin bag tightly to close. To use, simply place one bag under running, hot bath water. This recipe yields approximately 9.5 oz. of bath tea and salt soak by weight. (Note: If you won’t be using these right away or are giving as wedding favors or gifts, I recommend that you enclose the bath tea and salt soaks inside poly zip bags first, then place the bag inside the decorated muslin bag. This way the essential oils from the bath tea and salt soak won’t seep through the bag.)
This Organic Bath Tea and Salt Soak is perfect not only for favors but as gifts for birthdays and Mother’s Day as well as stocking stuffers!
