Want to pamper yourself with a spa getaway without spending hundreds of dollars? Well now you can, right at home with these DIY recipes!


Mix in a bowl:

  • cup citric acid
  • 1 cup baking soda
  • cup of cornstarch (run ingredients through a sifter to really get them mixed)

Add to the mixture:

  • cup Epsom salt (mix very well)

Fill a small spray bottle with:

  • Water
  • Six drops of your favorite food coloring (lightly spritz the mixture until it's damp enough to be packed together with your hands)


  • 4-5 drops of essential oil (mix everything with your hands to make sure it's packable)

Take an ice tray or candy mold:

  • Pour the mixture into the tray
  • Really pack the powder into the mold with your thumb
  • Let them sit overnight to dry, then crack them out of the mold like ice cubes
  • Package for a gift or throw in your bath!


  • Take a stainless steel tea ball and set it in a little jar so it won't topple over.
  • Add a little bit of Epsom salt to the bottom.
  • Add your favorite scented potpourri.
  • Drop some of your favorite essential oils on top of that.
  • Stick your tea ball in the bath!


  • Buy some large empty tea bags from a tea store or online.
  • Fill them with your favorite teas or combinations of different teas.
  • Seal and staple them.
  • Toss them in a warm bath or give them as gifts! They make your bathroom smell like a relaxing spa.


  • Start with a pretty jar.
  • Fill it 1/3 of the way with coconut oil.
  • Add the fresh petals from one rose.
  • Fill the rest of the jar with raw cane sugar.
  • On top of the cane sugar, add jojoba oil. The oil will seep down and let the flowers distribute throughout the mixture.
  • Once the oil settles a bit, add a little bit more just to fill the jar.
  • The last step is to close the lid and be patient. Let the oil seep down into the mixture.
  • When you're ready to use it, be sure to stir it up first.
