DIY Homemade Lemon Bath Salts

DIY Homemade Lemon Bath Salts

Homemade bath salts are one of the easiest things to make, and parents can feel comfortable knowing that they are using a 100% all-natural product in their children’s bath. It’s all about the lemons this summer, and while making a rosemary and lemon salt scrub, we used the zest from the lemons to make this simple DIY lemon bath salts. The only thing you need to plan when making them is about 1-2 hours for the salts to fully dry out before storing in jars.
