This recipe combines a basic bath salt blend of Epsom Salt, Sea Salt, Baking Soda, Essential Oils and dried flowers.You can repeat this recipe and take out any component of it, and it will still be fabulous. When it comes to the Essential Oil part you can of course replace with other Essential Oils. The key is to know which Essential Oils are safe for use in the bath. There are many Essential Oils that can severely irritate your skin in the bath. Stick to the safe oils, like many (not all) flower, herb, shrub and tree oils.
OK, Let's get making our bath salt recipe. This recipe is high in florals with some citrus. Perfect for relaxing the nerves, deepling unwinding and feeling restored.
This recipe makes 2 cups of finished bath salts. Get a suitable container ready ahead of time. A simple container involves recycling a food glass jar and lid, wash & dry it thoroughly. Be sure to wash the label off too!
1. Add One Cup Epsom Salt and One Cup Sea Salt
Epsom Salts are actually Magnesium Crystals, perfect for relieving muscle stiffness and making your whole body feel loose and relaxed.
Sea Salt comes in all forms, Himalayan Pink Salt, Course Salt, Dead Sea Salt or regular Sea Salt. They are each fabulous, adding minerals to your bath and relieving achy joints, stiffness, cramps and improving circulation.
2. Add the baking soda. Stir well.
Baking Soda is always a wonderful addition to a bath salt recipe. It's soothing to the skin and makes you feel silky soft.
3. Add the Essential Oils to the Salt Mix. Stir very well to incorporate.
- 8 Drops Bergamot FCF* Essential Oil
- 5 Drops Geranium or Rose Essential Oil
- 4 Drops Ylang Ylang Essential Oil
4. Add the Rose Petals to the Salt Mix.
Gently fold in the petals. Don't stir too harshly or the petals will break up too small.
Adding dried flower petals or other botanicals to your salts is completely optional. They look lovely, but not everyone wants to clean their tub right after they have a bath.
