Homemade DIY Mint Bath Salts

Homemade DIY Mint Bath Salts - Perfect gift or party favor.
Author Melissa


  • 1 Tbsp Baking Soda
  • 2 Cups Epsom Salt
  • 3-4 drops of peppermint essential oil
  • 4 Drops green food coloring optional
  • Homemade Mint Bath Salt Printable
  • Airtight Container - 4 ounce Mason Jars work very well.


  • Combine your baking soda, Epsom salt and peppermint essential oil in a small mixing bowl.
  • Using a spoon stir the mixture together and make sure it’s combined nicely.
  • Add in your 4 drops of food coloring and stir until all the Epsom salt is covered in a minty green color. If you would like your mixture darker just add in a few more drops and be sure to mix well.
  • Since we are using such a small amount of food coloring it will not color your skin and it will not ruin your bath tub. The food coloring is optional though.
  • Spoon your mixture into an airtight container and store for up to 6 months.
  • Place a lid on your container and tie with a pretty ribbon and don’t forget the free printable!


This is enough to fill just 4 of the 4 oz Mason jars. If you are making more you will need to increase the recipe.
