Solid Salt Soaks with Amanda
In this special Father’s Day edition, you’ll learn to make solid salt soaks for Dad! We’ll go over essential oil blending, focusing on more masculine blends that any guy is sure to love. Solid salt soaks are primarily made up of Epson salt. When you drop them into warm water they activate and release skin-loving oils, butters and essential oils.
You have to have the perfect binding mix to make Epson salt stay together in solid form. Salt is also a humectant and can sweat in humid conditions. I’ll help you troubleshoot that issue, and help you create a solid salt soak that hardens up beautifully to package!
In this class you’ll learn:
- All about ingredients and equipment.
- How to formulate a solid salt soak, creating the perfect binding mixture.
- Essential oil blending for more masculine scents.
- How to safely dilute essential oils for the bath.
- Molding techniques.
- Coloring techniques, focusing on natural clays and botanicals.
In class we’ll make two batches of solid salt soaks. By the end of this session, you’ll know what results to expect and be confident in your ability to achieve them!
Solid salt soaks are a trendy new product that your customers are sure to love! Who doesn’t like soaking in an Epson salt bath? Jazz it up a bit by creating a fun to use solid product that customers can toss into the tub to create a spa experience they’re sure to come back for.

Robyn French Smith
My name is Robyn French Smith, and I own Scandalous Soap Company! I studied fine art at the University of St Thomas and the Glassell School of Art in Houston TX, and graphic design at The Art Institute of Houston. I started dabbling in DIY bath and body products over 10 years ago after moving to Alaska. While I knew how to make bath bombs for several years, I didn’t start formulating and designing my own bath fizzies until 2019 when I left my former LLC and launched my own company. Using my background in art to create beautiful and unique bath products, has been a joy! I love testing and experimenting, and I can’t wait to share what I’ve learned as we hang out on a virtual retreat.
