Herbal Bath Salt

A long soak in the tub is a nice treat after working outdoors. It’s even better with homemade bath salts made with herbs harvested from the garden.


  • 1 cup fine sea salt
  • ¼ cup coarse sea salt
  • ¼ cup dried herbs (lavender, mint, and lemon balm are good choices)
  • ¼ cup baking soda


  1. Combine all the ingredients in a food processor and blend until the mix is powdery, about one minute will do.
  2. Pour the mixture into a bowl and add 1/4 cup baking soda. Whisk to combine all the ingredients.
  3. Transfer the bath blend to an airtight container and store in a cool, dry place.
