This is one of my all-time favorite bath salt (Use the code kitchenstewardship for 15% off of your first purchase) recipes. It needs a couple of days to “cure,” and is made with energizing citrus!



  1. Combine the baking soda and Epsom salts in a bowl.
  2. Grate zest of orange or lemon and add to bowl.
  3. Stir until mixed well.
  4. Slowly add in about 20 drops of essential oil while stirring until mixed thoroughly.
  5. Spoon the citrus bath salts into a clean empty jar and seal.
  6. Let your bath salts sit for a day or two to get infused with essential oils before using or gifting.
  7. To Use: Add 1-2 Tbsp to a warm bath while water is running.
