I’m all about instant gratification. I know I should learn to be patient, but it’s honestly my least favorite virtue. If I can do something in a minute or less, I’m sold. If I can take a bath in it? Even better. Epsom bath salts have been around forever, but sitting in a salty bath is relaxing enough for this girl. I want some fragrance and to truly relax—enter my newest 60 second project- diy lavender bath salts.

It feels funny even writing a tutorial about this one…that’s how truly easy it is. You need just a few things to make it:
- epsom salt
- lavender tea
- a jar
- lavender essential oil -optional but worth it! I personally use Young Living oil, but here’s an option on Amazon as well.
Pour your salt in a jar, add your lavender tea, add a few drops of essential oil, shake it up and call it a day.
And take a realllllly long, glorious bath in it. 🙂
So you don’t clog your drains, I highly recommend getting a strainer for your tub. I can imagine the look on my plumber’s face if he has to come unclog my drains full of lavender buds. 🙂

I usually just buy the lavender or eucalyptus scented epsom salt because I am with you, I want a fragrance!! But this is totally fun to make your own version!!!!
I love lavender! I bet this smells really good. These would make awesome gifts/favors!
I’ve been making body scrubs and things like that for my friends for ages. But, this looks just divine! I love the scent of lavender and I can just imagine how relaxing a salt bath with it would be. This would the be the perfect summer birthday gift for my friends too!
