The stress and anxiety surrounding the coronavirus these last few months has definitely made me want to jump in the tub more than usual. A lot more!! So much so that I’ve run out of bath bombs and bath salts. Since I make many of my own bath and skincare products, I already had everything I needed to make these Simple DIY Bath Salts at home.
- 2 C. Epsom Salt
- 1 tsp. Vegetable Glycerin
- A few drops of your favorite essential oil (I used Jasmine)
- Non-toxic food coloring

Vegetable glycerin is a moisturizer and skin cleanser that’s used in skincare products and on its own. I like to keep it handy with my beauty DIY ingredients because it makes a great all-around softener and protectant. You can even use it on your lips because it’s water-soluble and not sticky.
What I love about this Simple DIY Bath Salts recipe is changing up the scent of the essential oils and the colors. This pink jasmine is my favorite, but I’ll take a traditional lavender-scented soak any day of the week!
