Have you heard about the Scandinavian lifestyle concept called “hygge?” While there’s no direct translation to English, hygge (pronounced hue-gah) is simply the feeling of comfort and coziness. I can totally get behind that! Some activities that promote a hygge lifestyle include knitting warm socks, curling up on comfortable couch, reading a good book, or drinking a nice hot cup of tea. Of course, nothing says hygge quite like enjoying a hot, candle-lit bath. These calming bath salts DIY are perfect for such an occasion!
- Calming Essential Oils Blend
- Plain Epsom Bath Salts
- Sea Salt Bath Salts
- Purple/Blue/Teal Glycerin Soap Colorants
- Glass Cylinder Jars with Flat Lids
- “Home Is Where The Hygge Is” Free Cut File
- Midnight Black Vinyl Roll (optional)
- Clear Vinyl Transfer Tape (optional)
- Cricut Explore Air 2 Machine (optional)
Step 1. Measure 2 cups each of the sea epsom salt and plain epsom salt into a bowl. Add 20 drops of essential oils.
Step 2. Depending on the color you want your bath salts DIY to be, add the coloring dyes. These are concentrated so I highly suggest starting with just 10 drops and then mix to see if you want more. I used 30 drops of blue and 15 drops of green to achieve the teal color bath salts.
Step 3. At this point, you can either pour the salts directly into the glass container or cut this fun “Home Is Where the Hygge Is” vinyl decal.
Step 4. Use transfer tape to transfer vinyl decal onto glass container.
Step 5. Pour balth salts into glass container and cover with lid.
You’re now totally ready for a perfectly lovely and relaxing bath with your Hygge Calming Bath Salts. Hope you enjoy making and using them!
These calming bath salts jars would also make great gifts for your favorite ladies!
