Mama’s Passion Bath Salts Recipe

As a gift for a friend awhile ago, I mixed up a batch of “Mama’s Passion Bath Salts” after the birth of her second baby. (By the time I got the gifts made and sent off, the baby was over 2 months old. oops.) :)

Perfect for the end of a long day, the rose scent is both relaxing and rejuvenating. (Note: this recipe contains Rose Geranium essential oil, which is not recommended for use during pregnancy. It is perfect for a tired mama, though- or anyone needing a little “pick-me-up”!)

This is a delightful recipe to mix up in summertime, with home-dried rosebuds (or, many herbal/tea stores will sell dried rosebuds in bulk).

Since I was mailing the gifts in an envelope mailer, I packaged the bath salts in a plastic baggie. For local gift-giving or home storage, I recommend reusing a pretty glass jar (which can often be found at thrift stores or garage sales, if you don’t have any on hand). At least I put a pretty label on it! :)

Mama’s Passion Bath Salts
1/2 cup Epsom Salts (or 1/4 cup Epsom Salts + 1/4 cup Sea Salts)
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 cup dried Rosebuds
5-6 drops Essential Oil of Rose Geranium

Mix together and add desired amount to warm bath. (You may want to use a tea ball or muslin bag, to keep the rosebuds from clogging the drain, if you think that might be a problem.)
