Homemade Yule Gifts: Bath Salts

I always feel that the best gifts are the ones which are homemade because they have that personal touch, you know? Here is a quick and easy way to make homemade bath salts. After all, who doesn't love bath salts, right? This particular recipe is meant for Yule.

What you need:
Zippered plastic bags
Rock salt or Epson salts
Your choice of Yule oil (citrus fragrances are nice)
Food coloring, green
Bottles or jars with screw-on lids
A square of burlap & tie for each jar or bottle (if you feel like getting a little more decorative)

Fill zippered bag 3/4 full with rock salt. Add the essential oils one drop at a time ~ it's okay to blend several ~ until you have a fragrance that you like. Add a few drops of food color, then zip the bag and give it a good shake. If you prefer multi-colored bath salts, add two or three drops of another color, zip the bag and shake it again. Pour into jars or bottles, then cap and label.


  1. My girls and I love to make our own bath salts and milk. Thank you for this Yule recipe. I will be sure to use it. I love how you added the burlap to the jars. Very rustic and festive.

    Thanks again for the wonderful Yule ideas.

    Blessings and Hugs, V.
