One of the fun DIY projects I was assigned during my Skinny Cow Wocave Mission was a make your own bath salts kit I received from Herban Crafts.  I have to say that I haven’t done anything like this before and it was so much fun! I think this Herban Crafts kit would make a great gift.  Here is how to make your own bath salts.

Here’s What You Need

Materials: (provided in your kit)

  • Lavender buds
  • Sea salt
  • Baking Soda
  • Citric Acid


  • Blender
  • Mixing Bowl
  • Sieve or strainer
  • Metal or plastic spoon
  • Jars (2 provided in your kit)

The kit came with everything I needed except for the equipment.

Make You Own Bath Salts Instructions

First, I ground half of the lavender buds provided in a blender (about .25 ounces) for one minute.

Next, I placed the ground lavender buds and sea salt into a mixing bowl.

I strained the baking soda with a strainer to remove the lumps and placed it into the bowl.

I mixed well, and then added the rest of the lavender buds until they were evenly blended.

Next, I put them in the two containers provided, and had enough to place more in another jar.

I decorated the jars with my ribbon, twine, and burlap.

Here are a couple after photos.  These were such a fun and easy homemade gift to make.  The kit is perfect for the crafter at heart.
