00 Gina HeadshotDecember 25th is right around the corner. If you’re looking for a last-minute gift this holiday season, make these Relaxing Sage and Lavender Bath Salts. This homemade gift is budget-friendly, is quick and easy to make and speaks from the heart.

Relaxing Sage and Lavender Bath Salts 

Making bath salts is easy. In fact, this relaxing beauty product is as simple as mixing all of the ingredients together and packaging them in a decorative jar. I found all of these ingredients at my local health food store, The Merc. The Epsom salts and dried lavender buds were available in the bulk section.

• 1 cup Epsom salts
• 1/2 cup dead sea salt OR sea salt (I used leftover coarse sea salt from my latest baking experiment.)
• 2 tablespoons moisturizing oil (sunflower or castor oil)
• 10 drops sage (Salvia officinalis) OR clary sage (Salvia sclarea) essential oil
• 1 tablespoon dried lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) flowers
• Decorative jar with a tight-fitting lid.

These are the ingredients you will need to make these simple salts.  

1. Add all of the ingredients together in a large mixing bowl and mix your newly formed bath salts with a spoon, in a plastic resealable bag or with your hands. I like to mix with my hands—just make sure that the salts, oils and buds are evenly distributed.
