Valentine’s day is just around the corner. Feelings about this holiday do tend to vary widely. But opinions aside, why not use the holiday as an opportunity to gift those you love – friends, family, S.O.s, or/and yourself! – a little R&R in the form of these incredible homemade bath time essentials. Organic and vegan (just make sure the coloring you choose is a vegan variant for the first two DIYs), these three DIYs are the perfect recipes for a relaxing evening on Valentine’s day or any other day of the year.

      Don’t they though?! I wonder if you could still make these bath salts and do a bit of a home pedi and soak your toes in a small bowl full of warm water and drop some of these salts inside!

  • The rose bath salts are totally my thing! I love getting bouquets of roses, then drying the petals after they’ve passed on, and using the crushed petals in beauty concoctions.
