Viola Herbal Bath Salt

As soon as I heard about this wonderful, non-edible recipe, I knew I had to share.  Violas are a beautiful, delicate flower that thrives in hydroponics.  They have a blissful, floral scent perfect for relaxing after a long day, or during a much-deserved day off.  Making your home-grown, home-made, aromatic bath salt is simple, so it’s perfect to make for yourself and a loved one.  Enjoy peacefully with a few candles, your favorite music, and maybe even your favorite person, too.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Ready in: 2 days or less


  • ¼ cup violas, fresh or dried (add other flower and herbs as desired)
  • ½ cup Epsom salt
  • 2 tablespoons course sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon Himalayan salt
  • 1 tablespoon baking soda
  • Add essential oils if desired, however the added moisture can react with baking soda when stored.


Place your flowers and Epsom salt in a food processor or coffee grinder to mix well.  Griding your flowers will prevent them from clogging your bathtub when it drains, but you can leave some full flowers for presentation as well.

Allow your flowers and Epsom salt to dry on a thin cookie sheet for a day or 2.  Then mix your flower and Epsom salt mixture with the course sea salt, Himalayan salt and baking soda.

Voilà – You’re ready to enjoy a peaceful, relaxing soak with the stress relieving, exfoliating and detoxifying benefits of your home-made, home-grown bath salt.
