I recently made bath salt party favors for my sister’s bridal shower and my sister-in-law’s baby shower. I decided that both ladies needed to be pampered, because let’s face it, pregnancy and wedding planning can be stressful and tiresome! I made a huge batch of bath salts and used them for both showers; don’t forget to set some aside for yourself! To cut down on cost, I used dried roses from a bouquet my hubby gave me. If you do not have dried roses lying around, head to the Dollar Store. Recently, I found they sold bath roses that dissolve in water. There are 9 rose buds in a box for only $1! Keeping cost in mind, I also planned ahead and searched local thrift stores for small Mason jars.

Labels/Stickers
Heart Stamp
Stamp Pad
Tea Bags
Ribbon
Small Note Cards

*Choice of one scent per batch: Lavender, Honey Suckle, Sandalwood, etc.*

DIY Bath salts for bridal shower prizes.

This gift was a huge hit at the shower!

Chop one dried rose bud and mix into bath salts.

Press sticker or label of your choice on the front on Mason jar. I chose a ‘K’ because it is my sister’s first name initial. Add ribbon around lid and set aside.

Use heart stamps to create a rustic banner for a bridal shower, wedding, baby shower, etc.

Heart stamped paper.

Boil water and then add 3 tea bags. Take off burner and let steep for 5 minutes. Submerge note cards in tea for 5 minutes. When note cards have a vintage stain, take them out and air dry. Once the note cards are dried, stamp a heart on one side of the cards. On the other side of the cards, indicate the bath salt scent and write instruction to add 2-3 TBSPs of salts to bath.

If you want to layer scents in a larger batch:

Follow above recipe for individual batches, leaving out rose petals until the end.
In a large bowl, combine 1/4 cup of each batch, mixing between additional batches. When all salts have been added, stir is 6 chopped, dried roses buds.
