Tired of spending money on fancy beauty treatments and bath products? Want to keep your skin healthy and glowing? If so, make your own bath salts, soap, and exfoliators!

For smooth, silky skin, check out these five DIY bath products:
DIY Bath Bombs
Make your own bath bombs with natural fragrances and essential oils! For instance, you can mix baking soda and Epson salts into a small bowl. Combine essential oils, olive oil, and citric acid (lemon juice) in a separate container. Pour the liquid mixture into the dry mix, pack into a bath bomb mold, and let it dry. Use it to massage your skin every time you’re showering or taking a bath. For a luxurious feel, add dried lavender, rose petals or orange peel.
Bath salts help detoxify the skin, relieve mental tension, and increase blood flow. Simply mix two cups of Himalayan salt, three cups of Epsom salt, two tablespoons of essential oil, and a half cup of baking soda. Pour the mixture into glass jars and store it in the refrigerator for later use.
Seaweed nourishes your skin and helps flush out toxins. It also has a relaxing effect. Mix one teaspoon of organic seaweed powder, four ounces of sea salt, and a few drops of chamomile essential oil in a glass jar. Shake it up and pour the mixture into bath water. Your skin will look like new!
Exfoliating Coffee Scrub
Get rid of chemical-laden exfoliators and pamper your skin with a natural coffee scrub! All you need are two tablespoons of olive oil and two tablespoons of dried coffee grinds. Mix well, rub it onto your skin, and take a shower. It’s a fantastic way to remove dead cells and revive dull skin!
Make a deeply nourishing body wash at home using a half bar of shea butter soap, six cups of distilled water, lavender essential oil, half cup of coconut oil, and a pinch of bentonite clay. This mixture will leave your skin soft and smooth, restore its glow, and increase moisture.
