How to Make your Own Scented Bath Salts ~ Mother’s Day Craft or a Spa Party

| April 2, 2014 | 34 Comments

Mother's Day Craft  ~ Bath Salt

When I attend conferences or baby shows, I prepare small bath salts gift bags to hand out to the moms.  This recipe is also ideal for a Mother’s Day gift or if you are having a spa party with your friends.

For Energy, you can make the zesty orange-scented salts (my favourite)

For Romance, try the rose-scented salts

For Serenity, how about the vanilla-scented salts
