Essential oil bath salts are a quick, easy DIY gift that would be a good fit for a lot of the people on your list. The basic recipe starts with just 3 ingredients, and you can customize it from there. Use Airomé 100% pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils to create an all-natural gift.

Essential Oil Blends
Lavender or orange oil makes great bath salts on its own, but blending complementary essential oils can maximize aromatherapy benefits. Use one of Airomé’s proprietary Essential Oil Blends, like Citrus Boost or Breathe In, or mix your own blend using our Single Essential Oils.
You can add some aesthetic flair to your homemade gift with a few simple add-ins. Try mixing in:
- 2 Drops of food coloring for some subtle color
- Zested orange lemon, or grapefruit peel
- Fresh lavender
With these simple tips, your bath salts will turn out so perfect, you’ll have to keep some for yourself!
