DIY Summertime Citrus Bath Salts

If you’re not familiar with the adorable Willow and Sage Magazine then you’re in for a treat! I first saw the magazine in a bookstore, and with its hand-drawn illustrations and fancy recipes, it was too beautiful to pass up. Naturally when they sent this gorgeous DIY project I couldn’t wait to share it with you!

These citrus bath salts are packaged so beautifully they’d make the perfect gift — just be sure to make an extra for yourself because they smell and feel delicious. And with all-natural ingredients and fragrances, the result is a clean, fresh, wholesome product that anyone would love. Plus the packaging is totally pin-worthy.

I’ll let Sarah take it from here. Post a pic if you make these at home!
