Homemade eucalyptus bath salts is our family’s go to comfort item for wintertime colds and flu. It makes great gifts as well, especially for teachers. Once you have the ingredients on hand, the supplies make a lot of bath salts. Just mix all the ingredients together and store in mason jars.
Eucalyptus Bath Salts for wintertime colds and flu
1 cup baking soda
1 cup dry milk
2 cups Epsom salts
2 cups dead sea salts
1 tsp. olive oil
15-20 drops of Eucalyptus essential oil
It’s a quick and easy gift to make and the ingredients can be found at local grocery stores. The dead sea salts are bought in bulk, or by the pound, from organic grocery stores. I get mine at Earthfare. The eucalyptus oil can be found there as well. The mason jars are 12 oz. Ball canning jars. I used a scrapbooking punch for the label and fabric to dress up the jar. Scrapbooking paper can be cut and added to the top of the jar instead, with a bow to pretty it up.
I shared these during a holiday craft making swap over the weekend and they were a big hit. I was introduced to this gift making swap by my friend Melissa at Frugalissa Finds. It was great fun.
