  • Sea salt or kosher salt

  • Aromatic bath oil

  • Dried fragrant plants, like lavendar or eucalyptus (optional)

  • Glass or plastic jar

  • Spice sachet


  1. Start with about 4 cups of sea salt or kosher salt. Mix in several drops of an aromatic bath oil (available at bath and beauty stores) and, if you wish, dried fragrant plants, such as lavender or eucalyptus.

  2. Pour into a jar for yourself or to give as a gift. Use a few spoonfuls of salts per bath; to keep herbs from floating, spoon the mixture into a spice sachet (available at gourmet grocery stores).
