Wedding Favors Bath Salts

Bath salts are super easy to make. I had always thought of bath salts as a fast and easy birthday gift for my friends. I’ll admit it, I’m not much of a bath gal as I would much rather take a shower and move on. It wasn’t until I was challenged to think of a simple wedding favor that I changed my perspective of bath salts.If you were given a gift of bath salts and you were a shower person like me, how would you use them? Would you consider putting the salts in a muslin bag or a folded washcloth to wash your body? Salts can give a conditioned feel to water, so there is a benefit to using them. (As long as you wash the salt off before you finish your shower. 😉 )

Back to the subject of making bath salts! Bath salts make perfect wedding favors because they can be relaxing, easy to make and even fun! A couple and a few friends or family can cruise quickly make a large batch of bath salts and then everybody would have a job to help make the favors by filling, tying ribbons or applying labels and stickers. I think this would be a fun way to enjoy the company of those we are close to without feeling too stressed about the upcoming event.

Come join me in the blog kitchen as we make these easy bath salts!

q.s. spritzes of premixed Purple Raspberry color*

* The premixed Purple Raspberry color was made by mixing 1/2 tsp Purple Raspberry with 2 ounces of water in a 2 oz bottle with a spray head. After the color was mixed, I used this to makes the salts my desired color.

I’m going to make 2 pounds of Bath Salt. I decided that I wanted a light scent for these bath salts, so I’m scenting at a 0.5% fragrance load, or 4.7 mL for 2 pounds. I’m going to round this down to 4 mL because this will be easier for me to measure as well as allow me to keep my sanity. 🙂

Place salt into the plastic zip bag and add fragrance oil to the salt. Close the bag and knead the salt to mix the fragrance oil into the salt and break down any clumps. Once the clumps are gone, we can start spritzing the color onto the salts. I used 40 total spritzes on the salt.

Now the salt is completely mixed, you can measure it into the gusseted bags and then tie the bags with ribbon. You can punch a hole through a card with information for the guests and tie that card to the ribbon on the bag. Ta-da! The bath salts are now done and you have beautiful wedding favors.

Enjoy!
