I prefer clear jars so you can see the pretty bath salts on the shelf.

To use, add one to two handfuls of bath salts after a couple of inches of water have filled the tub. Hold the salts under the faucet and let them fall into the running water.  You can stir the water around with your hand to help them dissolve. The fragrance will be released with the steam and your bathroom will smell heavenly!

  1. Lavender is so pleasant,Thank you for this idea! I love the dryer idea and the linen spray idea too. just happen to have lavender left over from making Lavender Honey Peaches 🙂

    • There’s so many wonderful uses for lavender! And a bagful of the buds sure go a long way! I still have a jar of the peaches left. I may have to get those out this week.

  2. This sounds so soothing. I need to make some for my ‘killing me work days” baths. This next two weeks is going to be killer. I don’t have a day off for 10 days straight so my muscle relaxing baths each night are a life saver. 🙂 Thank you.

  3. I want to smell the salts after looking at your pictures! I might have to make these-thanks!

  4. I bet they smell heavenly and they look pretty too 🙂

  5. Sounds great! Where do you get those jars….cute. How much is a couple handfuls, maybe 1/2 cup? Thanks

    • Hi JoAnn! I got the jars at Hobby Lobby. They have an assortment of sizes. Their glass jars frequently go on sale for 50% off so I always try to snag them during the sale.
