DIY Gift Guide: Himalayan Salt and Lavender Oil Bath Soak

Mother’s Day is just around the corner and I’ve been brainstorming ways to show my mom just how much I appreciate her. While there’s nothing wrong with going out and buying the perfect gift, there’s just something special about giving your mom a handmade gift on this holiday. If your mother is like mine, chances are that she could use some well-deserved rest and relaxation on her special day. So, this year, my team and I put together a sweet little Mother’s Day DIY to help our moms kick back and relax a little.

This Himalayan salt and lavender oil bath soak recipe is the perfect gift for all of the mamas out there that could use a little me time. And it’s quite simple too…only four steps! Here’s how to make this relaxing lavender-infused bath soak…

How simple is that? If you’re feeling crafty, the lavender oil in this recipe can be substituted with plenty of other pretty scents. My team and I whipped up a batch of rose scented bath soaks as well, and they were equally as heavenly.
