Flower Garden Bath Soak Blend
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.

Ingredients List For Flower Garden Bath Soak Blend
- 1/2 cup fine sea salt
- 1/2 cup dried flowers of your choice
- 1/4 cup extra coarse sea salt
- 4 drops lavender essential oil + 2 drops clary sage essential oil (or geranium, rose, or more lavender), diluted with 1 1/2 tsp oil (jojoba, apricot kernel, or fractionated coconut oil are all good choices, but use your favorite)
Ingredient & Equipment Source
Some links on this site are affiliate links. I only recommend products I’ve personally purchased and enjoyed.
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.
Dried Flowers – dry your own (directions HERE) or use from this beautiful botanical flowers kit (buy HERE).
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!

Would this be a one time amount for bath?
Hi Karen! Yes, for one bath, or you could split the amount for two baths, if you’d like. :)
Thanks for a great post. Could I perhaps replace some of the salt with epsom salt for tired muscles?
Hello! Yes, you can interchange salt types in most soak recipes. Epsom salt is a wonderful choice for tired muscles!
This looks so good, I love a long hot bath :)
Thanks Liz! I’m glad that you like the recipe! :)
Do you have to add the essential oils
Hi Paige! No, the essential oils are completely optional. :)
