Snowballs for the Bath


Use epsom salts to create bath "snowballs" with your favorite essential oil. These snowballs from Amy of Progressive Pioneer make clever, low-cost holiday gifts.

Snowballs for the Bath


  • Epsom salts
  • Water
  • Spherical Mold or Bath Ball Mold
  • (optional) Essential oil- lavendar, sweet orange, rose, cinnamon, peppermint, etc.
  • (optional) Food coloring- Keep the snowy white look or add blue food coloring for an icy look if you like.


  1. For every cup of epsom salts, add about a tablespoon of water, or a little more, to give it kind of a moldable, wet sand consistency.
  2. Pack it into some sort of spherical mold (craft stores usually have clear plastic ones designed to fill with Christmasy stuff for ornaments. Should be easy to find this time of year).
  3. You can also add a few drops of essential oil per cup of salts. I used lavendar, but try sweet orange, rose, cinnamon... plenty of lovely options. You can add food coloring if you like, though I prefer the snowy white look.
  4. Remove from mold and let air dry for 2-3 days or speed up drying by placing in a 200 F oven for a few hours.
