Do you love fall smells as much as I do? I always stock up on seasonal air fresheners this time of year because I want to keep our home smelling like autumn all year long. If you want your relaxing soak in the tub to have those same delicious scents, you can easily add fall scents to your homemade bath soaking salts.
First you need to mix up the dry ingredients. I used a 4:1 ratio for this batch of soaking salts, so I used four parts of Epsom salt with one part baking soda. You can adjust the actual amounts based on the size mason jars you will be using, but the ratio should stay the same. Then I picked out a fall Lorann candy oil for each of my three batches: Maple, Pear and Vanilla Butternut. If you are making a large batch of salt, you may need two vials of oil for your salt. If you are making a small batch, you may not need the whole 1 dram vial. Add however much oil smells good to you!
The maple and vanilla butternut candy oils added a bit of color to the salts, but the pear oil is clear. I added a bit of green and yellow mica powders to that batch to turn it a pear green. This step is totally optional because it is just for looks.
I packaged the soaking salts in tiny mason jars, because mini mason jars are adorable. Lastly, I added a bit of glitter tape to the rim of the jar lid.
These make wonderful favors for fall parties, showers, weddings, or as hostess gifts for Thanksgiving. You can find a huge range of candy oil flavors online, so you can scent your fall bath salts like bourbon, cinnamon, pecan, or caramel too.
