This beautiful soak, filled with colorful flowers and a pretty floral scent, is reminiscent of a walk through a flower garden on a lovely spring day.
You can use any combination of dried flowers that you like. For this batch shown, I used cornflower, rose and calendula.

Fine Sea Salt – should be available in your local grocery store, alongside regular table salt.
Coarse Sea Salt – check local stores, or I used THIS wonderful extra coarse kind from Amazon.
Essential Oils – I like Mountain Rose Herbs for body care projects like this one, but use your own favorite brand.
Mini Food Processor – check the kitchenware section of local stores, or HERE on Amazon.
Jars or Bags – Mountain Rose Herbs has muslin or poly-lined bags that are great for bath soaks, or you could package in jars.
Directions to Make Flower Garden Bath Soak
Using a mini food processor, blend the fine sea salt and dried flowers, just until coarsely chopped. Don’t overly process or they’ll turn into a powder.
Combine the extra coarse sea salt and essential oils, then add the ground flower and salt mixture. Stir everything together until thoroughly combined.
Store the soak in a tightly closed glass jar, out of direct sunlight, for three to four months, keeping in mind the scent may fade over time and need refreshing.
Tie the soak in a muslin tea bag (or clean sock) before adding to a bathtub being filled with comfortable warm water. Relax and enjoy!
