Lemon Lavender Bath Salts in a Jar Gift Idea


I chose lemon lavender because it smells so good together.  The lavender is relaxing, but the lemon gives it a fun crisp scent that can also boost your mood.

You can follow this bath salts in a jar gift idea and use different scents.  Just use the same amount of essential oils in a recipe.  Peppermint and lemon or just peppermint would also be wonderful.

Or try one of these bath salts recipes to use in these cute little jar ornaments:



This recipe makes 3 mason jar ornaments.  If you use a different size container or make more, you may need to adjust the recipe.

Epsom Salts


Epsom salts aren't really a salt.  They are magnesium sulfate.  Most people are deficient in magnesium, but our bodies can absorb it through our skin.

Boosting your magnesium intake can promote better sleep and reduce stress.  These lemon lavender bath salts in a jar makes a great gift idea because it can promote relaxation and it's fun to use.

You can also use magnesium flakes.  I prefer magnesium flakes in my bath salts, but Epsom salts work fine and are easier to find.

Sea Salt


Sea salt helps restore pH balance for your skin.  It can also help detox by pulling toxins from the skin.

Sea salt also exfoliates the skin and kills bacteria.

Lemon Essential Oil


Lemon essential oil is a natural astringent and can help detox the skin.  Lemon can help rejuvenate the skin, making your skin look brighter.

When used as aromatherapy, lemon essential oil can promote relaxation and help with insomnia and tiredness.

Lavender Essential Oil


Lavender essential oil is naturally antiseptic.  It can kill bacteria, fungus, and other microbes.  It's a gentle oil, so it's well tolerated by most people.

When used in aromatherapy, lavender can help promote relaxation and promote better sleep.

Dried Lavender and Lemon Peel


I added dried lavender and dried lemon peel for some texture.  Both are optional, but they make these lemon lavender bath salts in a jar look cute.

Jars


I live in a farmhouse, and I decorate with mason jars a lot.  Even my dogs' waterer is a giant mason jar.  (By the way, that was about the best investment I've ever made for my pets!)

I found these cute mason jar ornaments, and I fell in love with them.  As soon as I saw them, I knew they'd make a cute bath salts in a jar gift idea.

You can get them at Consumer Crafts, Etsy, or Amazon.
