Bath Salt Ornament

 Hey guys! I'm blog hopping with the gals again and we're all sharing our spin on DIY Christmas ornaments. I'm sharing a super easy DIY that's half Christmas ornament and half stocking stuffer! 

The supplies for this are really simple and really inexpensive. I got an empty disc ornament from Michaels, like this:

I also grabbed some essential oils from my collection, and a small bag of epsom salts. This ended up being one of those DIYs that proved very difficult to photograph, so I will be adding a video at the end!

First things first, start with your clean, empty ornament and fill it about halfway with your epsom salt

Then, add your oils of choice! Lavender is a great option if you want a classic, relaxing bath. I chose vanilla and Christmas spirit oils to give this a holiday twist! I did about 5 drops of each

Fill the ornament the rest of the way with epsom salts, but leave enough room so you can shake everything up to combine. Once the oils/salts are combined, pop the top back on. 

Pro tip: If you're planning to hang this off the tree, hot glue the lid on. They're pretty heavy and the hot glue will help you avoid a mess!

Last step, add a cute and festive ribbon to finish it out!

How cute is this? 

Below is the DIY timelapse:

Now on to what the other ladies are up to!

Are you DIYing any decorations this year? Tell me in the comments what you're making!


  1. Liz I love how these can also be gift ideas. Huge essential oil user here, so you inspired me to make something similar for gifts this year. Thanks

    1. Yay! I'm glad you found inspiration, can't wait to see yours!

  2. Such a great idea, Liz! I'm sure the addition of the essential oils will make these bath salt ornaments even more relaxing. These definitely would make a great gift also!

    1. Thanks Ashlee! Nothing beats a soak in the tub with relaxing smells!

  3. These are so cute! I really like how you can customize them for yourself or friends and family. Thanks for hopping!
