Rainbow Foot Soak

Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we are big fans of making bath salts, soaks, fizzies and bath bombs. There’s nothing like knowing that someone really enjoys relaxing in the tub and then gifting them with an excuse to do just that!

I mean, imagine coming home after a long day at work and having the perfect reason to climb into the tub and soak away your worries, maybe even break-out some rose and jasmine sugar scrub cubes or lemon sugar scrub cubes. See? That’s really what you’re giving. It’s the perfect DIY gift idea.

And, if I get a little excited and make extra rainbow foot soak and happen to keep some for myself, well, that’s not a crime! It’s smart. Let’s get started.

Tips to Make this Foot Soak Recipe

  • To use the bath salts, just empty the contents into a bath of warm, running water and enjoy!
  • Epsom salt helps with aches and sore muscles, while the essential oil (if you use lavender) can help relax, ease tension, help with headache, and even help promote healthy sleep.
  • I loved having an Epsom salt bath after I had my daughter. If you know anyone who recently had a baby, this is definitely a DIY gift idea for them!

This rainbow foot soak couldn't be easier to make. It's a fun gift idea for a birthday but it's also just a quick and easy self-care treat.

Active Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes
Difficulty Easy


  • 1 ½ cups of epsom salt

  • 1 tablespoon of colorful sugar sprinkles
  • 7-10 drops of essential oil of your choice (lavender is ideal)


  • jar
  • spoon


  1. In a mixing bowl, mix the epsom salt and essential oils. Mix well until all of the ingredients are evenly distributed.
  2. You can now add the sugar sprinkles. Waiting will prevent them from being saturated with the essential oil which can cause the colors to leak.
  3. Pour the bath soak into an airtight jar or baggie. This will help keep it fresh and help preserve the oils in the mixture. The bath soak can be stored this way for several months and it will still stay fresh, just keep air out and store in a cool and dry place.
