How cute is this bath salt jar?! My girlfriend brought it from New York filled with my most favorite licorice candies from my most favorite Brooklyn grocer. Did you know Aaron and I spent the first year of our marriage in New York? It's true. And if you visit New York or live there, you have to go to Sahadi's on Atlantic in Brooklyn. They have the best licorice, best olives, best hummus, hands down the yummiest food items in all the land. I miss it a lot. So when she pulled out this jar filled with treats from there, it was pretty exciting. Although the treats didn't last long, I knew I wanted to repurpose the jar because of how unique and special it is. You can find it online here.
Homemade bath salts were on my to do list and I thought they would look beautiful next to my bathtub in this lovely container. It's so easy to make your own bath salts. Take a look at the supplies.
Relaxing Bath Salt Recipe
- jar that clamps shut
- 4 cups Epsom Salt
- 1/2 cup Sea Salt (grocery bought is fine)
- 25-30 drops Lavender essential oil
- 20-25 drops Ylang Ylang essential oil
- 20 drops Clary Sage essential oil
- wooden spoon
Just combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix thoroughly. Transfer to your jar and clamp shut. You can halve the recipe if you want to make less.
You can add lemongrass essential oil which is great for circulation and healthy joints. A few others to consider combining would be chamomile, lavender, and rosemary. Rosemary helps alleviate eczema and tones the skin.
I think it would make a beautiful gift too! I can see this for end of year teacher gifts, shower favors, or a favorite things party.
