Homemade Bath Salts

For the past two years, my friend Anna and I have gone to our local hippie shop to make free Christmas gifts. My favorite is the bath salts.

You will need:

1 cup epsom salts
1/2 sea salt (finely ground)
3 tablespoons milk powder (makes your skin smooth)
essential oils (I used clove and it pretty much smells like Christmas)
something to put it in

I put my bath salts in a small milk jug. I used mod-podge to attach some pretty tissue paper and to make the jar opaque. Add a little twine and it's very Anthro if I do say so myself.

[Check out my party page for a list of the blogs I post to]



  1. Very cute idea! I also made some body scrub this year with sugar. This is a gift I would love to receive ;)

  2. I'm gonna have to make some of this for myself & put it in a pretty container! Love it!

  3. Milk powder, like powdered milk? I would love to make some but I want to make sure I know what you mean. Im kind of a crafting dummy, haha!

  4. Great stocking stuffer... we exchange inexpensive gifts with friends, this is perfect...

  5. I just made mine, added rosemary/mint oil. I picked up some cute canisters at the Dollar Storethat are clear with a lid & scoop. I'm going to see if I can find some at the Thrift store

  6. ooooohhhhh...this looks amazing!!!
    I totally want to try!!

  7. 1/2 what sea salt? Tablespoon? Cup?


Thank you for coming along for the ride with me. Your comments make my day!
