DIY PINK HIMALAYAN SALT SPA: SCRUB, SOAK, SPRAY + CANDLE

January 21, 2017 By Jennifer 32 Comments

My sister Kim gave me a Himalayan salt lamp for my birthday this year. She has one and she loves hers so much that she thought I would also like it. And I do! I keep my salt lamp next to my desk and enjoy its warm, happy, salty glow all day long. So when it came to giving her a present, I decided to make a DIY Pink Himalayan Salt Spa for her. I researched all the different ways you can use pink himalayan salt to relax and feel good, and I came up with four things: a bath soak, a foot scrub, a body spray, and an aromatherapy candle. I put it all together in a gift basket for her (and one for my mom, too). You can make all these things from one 2 lb. bag of Himalayan sea salts plus a few other items. Let me show you how!

DIY PINK HIMALAYAN SALT SPA MATERIALS

Here’s a shopping list of what you need if you want to make the whole DIY Pink Himalayan Salt Spa gift basket (I’ve linked some Amazon affiliate items below for your convenience):

  • 2 lb. bag of pink Himalayan salt
  • 3 Mason or Ball jars (I recommend the wide-mouth pint size jars)
  • 1 spray bottle
  • Essential oils (peppermint, orange, eucalyptus, lavender)
  • Small jar of coconut oil
  • Small jar of sweet almond oil
  • Baking soda (small box)
  • Epsom salt (small box)
  • Distilled or boiled water
  • Votive candle with holder (small enough to fit in your jar)
  • Foot soaking tub or other basket that holds your spa products (I used a white foot soaking tub from my dollar store)
  • Tissue paper, shredded paper, or something to put between your jars so they don’t break in your gift basket
  • Fat square of fabric
  • Matching ribbon
  • Labels (free to download in my Resource Library)
  • Glue gun (or glue)

DIY PINK HIMALAYAN SALT BATH SOAK RECIPE

  • 1 cup of Epsom salt
  • 1 cup of pink Himalayan sea salt
  • 15 drops of essential oil (I used eucalyptus)
  • Mason jar (I used a regular pint jar, but the wide-mouth pint jars would work great, too)

Step 1: Mix everything in large bowl. Don’t try to mix it in the jar — the jar is not big enough to mix everything properly.

Step 2: Pour it in your jar.

Step 3: (Optional) Decorate and label. I explain how I did mine at the bottom of this post.

 

DIY HIMALAYAN SALT FOOT SCRUB

  • 1 cup of Himalayan Sea Salt
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon of sweet almond oil
  • 1 tablespoon of baking soda
  • 20 drops of essential oil (I used peppermint)
  • Wide-mouth pint-size jar

Step 1: Mix everything in large bowl. Don’t try to mix it in the jar — the jar is not big enough to mix everything properly. You want a clumpy consistency, similar to what is shown in the photo below.

Step 2: Put it in your jar.

Step 3: (Optional) Decorate and label. I explain how I did mine at the bottom of this post

DIY HIMALAYAN SALT BODY SPRAY MATERIALS

  • 1 cup of distilled or boiled water
  • 1 tablespoon of Himalayan Salt
  • 1 pinch of Epsom Salt
  • 5-7 drops of essential oil (I used orange)
  • Spray bottle

Step 1: Add salts to warm water and stir until dissolved.

Step 2: Add essential oils and put in a spray bottle.

DIY HIMALAYAN SALT CANDLE HOLDER

  • Pink Himalayan Salt
  • Wide-mouth pint-size jar
  • Votive holder
  • Votive candle
  • Essential oil

Step 1: Put a little pink Himalayan sea salt in the bottom of your wide-mouth jar.

Step 2: Put the candle and votive holder into your jar.

Step 3: Spoon the pink Himalayan salt all around your candle. Drop some essential oil into the salt around the candle.
