Pampering DIY Bath Soak — A Ridiculously Easy Christmas Gift Idea

Around the holidays, days are long and can be filled with stress — from the whirlwind of gift-giving and holiday parties to entertaining, travel and numerous other things on your holiday to-do list. If you want the perfect end to a long day, this DIY bath soak is a snap to make and transport.

In ten minutes or less, you have a bath soak that helps you wind down after a stressful day, eases sore muscles, and detoxes skin! Keep it or give it away as a rejuvenating and relaxing holiday gift.

DIY Bath Soak

Bath salts as well as chamomile, calendula flowers, lavender, rose petals, hibiscus and orange peel are layered into a clear plastic tube for an elegant and natural look. Leave the DIY bath soak unscented or add some of your favorite essential/fragrance oil(s) for a complete aromatherapy experience!

If you’re concerned about the flowers clogging your drain, place 1 tablespoonful of the soak into organza bags or sealable tea bags before each use. We packaged the bath soak in a clear plastic tube bead container that we found on Amazon. A classy container is the perfect finishing touch for this recipe.

What You’ll Need: 

  • 6 teaspoonfuls Dead Sea salt
  • 5 teaspoonfuls pink Himalayan salt
  • 5 teaspoonfuls Epsom salt
  • 6 teaspoonfuls + 3 teaspoonfuls Pampering Bath Tea Blend (chamomile, calendula flowers, lavender, rose petals, hibiscus and orange peel)
  • 20 drops Born to Move fragrance oil or essential/fragrance oil of choice, optional
  • One clear plastic tube bead container (5-1/2″ long) or four 8-dram glass vials


  1. Using a measuring spoon, measure out the salts into a glass bowl.
  2. Add Born to Move fragrance oil or essential/fragrance oil(s) of choice, if desired, then mix well.
  3. Add 6 teaspoonfuls of Pampering Bath Tea Blend to mixture, stirring to incorporate.
  4. Use a funnel to fill your container (a clear plastic tube bead container works perfectly).
  5. Place 3 teaspoonfuls of the Pampering Bath Tea Blend at the top of the filled tube and cap. Tie raffia around top of tube to decorate, if desired.
