So last week I showed you how to make your own bath salts, and today we are taking it a step further by adding three dried flowers. And I’ll also show you how to change the color by using Pink Himalayan salt.

If you’re looking for a quick and easy bath time treat to pamper and scent the skin, then look no further than these floral bath salts. The Dead Sea, Himalayan, and Epsom’s salt are packed full of skin-loving minerals. I’ve teamed them up with some of the most fragrant essential oils that will leave your skin smelling wonderful. 

I’m using Lavender, Rose and Calendula Petals, Not only are they vibrant and pretty, they all have superb skin benefits and are often my go-to when making oils, balms, and creams.

Hopefully, you saw my post last week on 4 DIY bath salts. But adding flowers to bath salts not only takes them to new aesthetic and aromatic heights, but they also bring some great detoxing and skin softening benefits. It’s also a great way of using up any dried flowers that you may have leftover from other recipes.

Looking After Your Floral Bath Salts

Salt draws moisture from the air which can cause the salt to become soggy and turn your pretty petals brown. so make sure you transfer them into a jar with a tight-fitting lid as soon as you have finished making them. To keep them in tip-top condition your salts should also be stored in a cool dry place between uses.   

Although these gorgeous salts will look pretty in any glass jar, thrift shops are a great place for picking up some unusual unique jars that give these salts an added touch. Just make sure you give them a quick wipe down with rubbing alcohol before use.

Using A Bath Tea Bag

Although you can sprinkle these straight into the bath If you are at all worried about clogging the plug up they can be placed into a muslin or lace tea bag before use. Some of these tea bags are reusable so they can be very cost-effective. For other Bath time Tea Bag recipes, watch out next week for my herbal and citrus teabag post.

Triple Flower Power Bath Salts

I’m using Lavender, rose and calendula petals in this recipe. Not only are they vibrant and pretty, but they also have superb skin benefits and are often my go-to when making oils, balms, and creams. I know I’m going to get some good use out of any leftover flowers.

I’ve chosen to use medium-grain Dead Sea salt and Epsom salts here because I have them to hand. I do however find floral bath salts have a great uniqueness about them when using different size grains, and the flowers seem to stay put better. So if you have a pestle and mortar don’t be scared to grind some of your salts to make them finer.

Spoon the salts into a prepared glass or PET container

Now Think Pink Bath Salts

pink floral bath salts homemade

The Himalayan salt gives these floral bath salts a lovely pale pink color and the added rose petals give them a sweetly feminine look. I’m going with rose-scented fragrance oil to stick with this theme. I would never use a precious essential oil like a rose in a bath full of water. Far too expensive for me. But if you can afford such a luxury, rose essential oil would be divine in your bath.

Of course, you can substitute the fragrance oil with an essential oil such as lavender and ylang-ylang or geranium and Jasmine. There are some fantastic ready-made essential oil blends available on the market that are great for adding to this sort of thing. Essential oil blends take away the worry and expense of mixing lots of essential oils.

 As with all bath salts they are super easy to make and will leave your skin feeling soft and supple.
