Are you going to be spending in someone else’s home this holiday season? Need a little thank you gift to leave behind? These holiday spice bath salts whip up in a hurry and are a delightful way to say thanks for the hospitality.
How to Make Holiday Spice Bath Salts
The great thing about this particular recipe is that the ingredients are likely already in the pantry.
- 1 Cup Epsom Salts
- 1/4 Cup Sea Salt
- 1/4 Cup Baking Soda
- 3 teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
- 1 1/2 teaspoons Ground Ginger
- 3/4 teaspoon Ground Cloves
Mix everything together well. Store in an airtight jar.
To use: Add 3 Tablespoons to warm bath water.
How to Give Holiday Spice Bath Salts
Put the salts in a cute jar. Find one at the thrift store or simply upcycle something already on hand. A basic canning jar will work just fine.
Tie a cinnamon stick and a little scoop or spoon to the jar. Add a simple thank you note and label with what’s inside and how to use it.
Give the bath salts to your host just before leaving or leave it behind in the guest bathroom for them to find later. I have an aunt and uncle who always little surprises in the guest room after they visit and honestly it tickles me every single to find it. Your hosts will be delighted to find a little package of love from you.
Alternatively, mail the bath salts in a tightly sealed plastic bag with a thank you note. This can be a nice way to share the love later, however; don’t let it slip by in the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. If time might get crunched and sending a small thank you gift might get lost in the shuffle, take the salts with you and leave them behind.
