• Homemade Grapefruit Bath Salts

    I’m working with Method on their Clean Happy Campaign. In honor of their July video, Give Your Nose a Hug, I thought it would be fun to try to make my own sweet smelling salts that will give your nose (and whole body) a hug in the the warm bath. Super simple to make, it took 2 minutes!

    Keep reading to see the full tutorial on making these sweet smelling bath salts yourself!

    Add a couple drops of pink food coloring to ice cream salt or sea salt (about 1 cup). Then add about 4 drops of an essential oil. Whatever your favorite scent it. I used grapefruit I bought here

    Mix and shake in a bag!

    I poured it into a mason jar and made a pretty label with some mini stamps and fabric. Would make a great gift too!

    What fragrance would you add to your bath salts? You can take a dishy personality test on Method’s Facebook page to find out your signature fragrance, and enter a sweepstakes to win a year’s supply of Method dish soap too!

      When used in the bath, won’t the food coloring dye your skin?

      I tried making some bath salts for a gift and they turned out okay the day I made them. Then they sat there for a few days as I got the rest of the gift together. Then they weren’t looking too hot haha I’ll def try this out!

        Good to know, did you use a similar recipe? I’ll have to keep an eyes on this batch I made!

      I saw this and made my own straight away. Rosemary and Lavender in a lilac colour. I added a few of the dried herbs alongside the essential oils. Love this project!
