If storebought bath salts don’t fit your budget, try your hands on a DIY bath salts recipe infused with essential oils.

This DIY bath salt recipe is inexpensive and easy to make. And the best part is that you can customize it to your preference.

But be careful with the eucalyptus oil.

And, if you don’t like eucalyptus oil, feel free to substitute it for your favorite essential oil or coconut oil.

How To Make Orange DIY Bath Salts At Home


  • 2 cups Epsom salt
  • Eucalyptus oil about 10 drops
  • 2 Tablespoons Orange zest
  • 1 Tablespoon Lemon zest


  • Grate around the orange to get the zest.
  • Repeat the same method to extract the lemon zest too.
  • Then mix the Epsom salt, citrus zest, and eucalyptus oil together in a bowl.
  • When all the ingredients are well combined, transfer into a glass jar and place the lid.
  • Store this homemade citrus bath salt in your bathroom or refrigerator.
  • Or decorate the jar and give as a gift for Fall!

Note: This bath salt would not stay fresh for a long time. The salts would absorb moisture from the orange and lemon peel and dry them up.

To prevent this from happening, you can either use up your bath salt within a short time of preparation or make a single-use batch.
