Learn to make a vanilla flavored bath salt in this simple recipe.

Bath Salt – Vanilla Dreams

What you need

1 cup Epsom salts
4-5 drops Food Coloring
3-5 drops Vanilla essential oil or fragrant oil


Just add all the ingredients together and mix well.

Make sure the food color, blends in to the salt or it wont look very inviting.

You can do this by tossing the salt over and over again.

Add dried rose petals, or lavender sprigs for a natural presentation.

Add your bath salts to a decorative jar and place a small wooden spoon inside for a great inexpensive gift.

For a frugal alternative to Epsom salts you can use a fine grade pool rock salt.


  1. Will the food coloring not stain your skin?

  2. you can hot glue gun one end of a straw, put some of the the bath salts in glue the other end of the the straw together and vola you’v got a pixi bath salt stick!!!!!!!!!!
