If your bridesmaids love a luxurious soak in the tub, why not consider making them some sweet smelling bath salts? It’s super quick and easy, and you can personalise the fragrance if you know what they love. Wrapping can be great fun too! If your wedding theme is earthy and woodsy, pop the salts into thick paper bags and tie with a wooden scoop. You could also adorn jars with fresh herbs or even sew the salts into fabric bags – the options are limitless!
These can be made well in advance and could even be a lovely group activity. A bath salts bar, set up with different scents and herbs, would be great fun! These easy bath salts are a gorgeous gift for guests at your bridal shower or even for the big day – they’re just that simple.
What You Will Need:
- Epsom salts
- Rock salt
- Essential oil (I’ve used lavender)
- Fresh herbs and flowers – (I’ve used rosemary and rose petals)
- Your choice of suitable container – (I’ve used mini glass jars from the dollar shop)
What To Do:
Step One. Mix together 50% Epsom salts and 50% rock salt. You can find Epsom salts at your local health food bulk store, and rock salt in your nearest supermarket.
Step Two. Add in up to 20 drops of essential oil. Do some research to discover which oils promote relaxation and calm. Lavender is perfect for this but consider also peppermint, geranium or citrus.
Step Three. Add in your chosen dried herbs and flowers. These are mainly for aesthetic appeal, but herbs will add a gorgeous aroma to the salts. Ensure both herbs and petals are completely dried. Rosemary and rose petals add a beautiful touch, but consider also mint, eucalyptus, tea tree or even cloves for a spicy scent.
Step Four. Once your salts are well mixed together, pop them into your chosen containers. Ensure the containers are clean and dry, and if you’re packaging these in advance of gifting them, make sure the jars have an airtight seal.
Step Five. Once your salts are packed into their containers, wrap them with ribbons, string, fresh flowers and herbs or whatever your heart desires. You can easily theme these to match any wedding or party colour scheme and your guests are sure to be impressed!
