Flower Garden Bath Soak Blend

A bowl of colorful floral bath soak

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.

Coarse Sea Salt – check local stores, or I used THIS wonderful extra coarse kind from Amazon.

Dried Flowersdry 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 BagsMountain 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

Step 1

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.

Step 2

Combine the extra coarse sea salt and essential oils, then add the ground flower and salt mixture. Stir everything together until thoroughly combined.

Step 3

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.

To Use

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?

  • Curious Girl says:

    Thanks for a great post. Could I perhaps replace some of the salt with epsom salt for tired muscles?
