You might have noticed, but lately I am ALL about the Esential Oils, especially peppermint! They’re just so awesome! And I personally love all of the benefits and uses for peppermint essential oils. As an incredibly busy (and stressed out) Blogger, Virtual Assistant, Handmade Shop Owner, Wife and Fur-Mom (I wear a LOT of hats y’all!), I’ve been making a point of pampering myself, at least a little, whenever I can 🙂 These DIY Fizzing Vanilla Peppermint Bath Salts are just the ticket!

These  DIY Fizzing Vanilla Peppermint Bath Salts are surprisingly easy to make too! You just need the right ingredients 🙂 And those aren’t hard to find either! I used my Young Living Essential Oils and got the rest at the grocery store or off of amazon (*affiliate links).

DIY Fizzing Vanilla Peppermint Bath Salts Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups of Epsom Salts
1/2 Cup of Baking Soda
1/3 Cup Citric Acid *
20 Drops Vanilla Essential Oil
10 Drops Peppermint Essential Oil
Air Tight Container for Storage *
Gloves for Mixing *

Directions:

In a large glass bowl add each of the ingredients, saving the essential oils for last.

Add in the essential oils. The strength of the peppermint is at least twice as strong as the vanilla, so you’ll need twice as much vanilla as peppermint. I used 10 drops of peppermint and 20ish drops of vanilla (there might have been a few extra drops, i like things sweet 😉 ).

Using your hands (this is where you’ll need the gloves) mix all the ingredients together thoroughly. Its kind of like kneading dough. Without the gloves the citric acid can burn a little, especially if you have any open cuts or scrapes on your hands.

Once all the ingredients are mixed well, transfer your  DIY Fizzing Vanilla Peppermint Bath Salts into an air tight container for storage.
