Andrea Schroder's Organic Bath Salts


  • Large glass or metal bowl
  • Epson salt or dead sea salt
  • Baking soda
  • Essential oil


  1. 2 cups Epsom Salt or Dead Sea Salt or 1 cup of each.
  2. Use clean glass jars, mason jars, baby food jars, or even spaghetti and jelly jars.
  3. 1-2 teaspoons of baking soda.
  4. 10-12 drops of essential oil (Lavender is best for a relaxing bath, Vanilla and Eucalyptus are also fabulous!)
  5. Pour the salt and the essential oils in a bowl.
  6. Begin to stir really well (I do this for at least two minutes because it's fun; the more you stir the more the wonderful scent begins to come through).
  7. Then pour into pretty glass jars and attach lids.
  8. Add ribbon around the top of the jar and decorate the lid if desired.
  9. Add a cheerful label and these make great gifts.
