Chamomile Bath Salts

How to make DIY Chamomile Bath Salts

Chamomile is a lovely herbal flower, famous for calming upset tummies and gently inducing a sleepy state at bedtime.

Something lesser known about it, is that it’s also a great ingredient choice to include in soothing skincare products.

(To read more about its potential benefits for your skin, check out this excellent article over at Herb & Hedgegrow.)


Chamomile Care Package Idea From Seasonal Living eBook

Yesterday, I talked about the chamomile care packages I was inspired to put together after reading a copy of Kathie Lapcevic’s workbook, A Fiercely D.I.Y. Guide to Seasonal Living.

I shared how to dry flowers for chamomile tea and some chamomile-themed printables you can download, including tags for these soothing DIY Chamomile Bath Salts. (If you haven’t checked that post out yet, you can do so HERE.)

Tomorrow, I’ll share the recipe for Chamomile Lip Balm & then next week, a Chamomile Tea & Honey Shampoo Bar.

Today though, let’s talk about how super easy these pretty bath salts are to make!

ingredients for chamomile bath salts


To print this recipe, scroll down until you see a green Print Friendly button.

  • 1/2 cup Epsom salt
  • about 1/4 cup fresh chamomile flowers *
  • optional: a few yellow flower petals for added natural color (I used pansies)

*If you don’t have fresh chamomile flowers, you can use dried flowers instead. The bath salts will have a much different texture and look to them, but the benefits will be the same.


Step 1

Place the Epsom salt and fresh flowers in a mini food processor (THIS is the kind I have).

Step 2

Blend until the color is evenly distributed.

Spread the colored out in a layer over wax paper and allow to dry for 1 to 2 days.

Step 4

Crumble up the dried salt and put it in a tightly sealed jar for storage.

And that’s it!

When ready to use, dump the bath salts into a cotton muslin bag (like THESE) or tie them up in a clean sock.

Drop the bag/sock into warm running water and enjoy a relaxing bath!
