This is the time of year I think about making more homemade beauty DIYs and homemade DIY gifts. Whether you have a big family like mine. Or are just making a few homemade beauty gifts for friends, a bridal or even baby shower you’ll find this Lavender Vanilla Bath Salts Soak easy to put together. Then just add this mixture into a clean glass container to give as a gift. Wrap with a ribbon and gift tags and your set.

Users will appreciate warm bath and enjoy the calming scents of lavender and vanilla. All they have to do is pour a quarter cup of the bath salts into a warm bath to enjoy the bath soak. They can store the bath salts in a airtight container for up to six months! As long as they use a clean scoop to get the salts out and keep them dry.

You might remember some of our other Beauty DIYs I’m going to include them in this post at the end, in case you’d like a few other homemade beauty DIYs to consider making. These are always a fun projects to do! Twice as fun to do with friends while enjoying their company. Make it a party and add appetizers, wine and music. Make several batches adding them into small clean dry jars. Or any size you’d like! Purchase other essential oils in a set. Try adjusting the recipe to your liking. Just remember to use essential oils properly. Not recommended for babies, consult Dr. if pregnant.

We love getting together for DIY, making and baking. Do you?
