DIY Homemade Relaxation Bath Salts


I love finding homemade remedies for supporting my body.   Not only does it save money, but I also have full knowledge of the ingredients I am using – this is becoming even more important to me as I try to weed out the stuff that my body certainly does not need!

IMG_0372Today I wanted to share with you a quick recipe for making your own bath salts.  Since discovering the benefits of essential oils, I am finding more and more ways to incorporate oils into my daily life and routine so that I can fully reap better health and emotional well-being. 

I wanted to mix up my own recipe for bath salts – so I decided to experiment one afternoon.  I knew we had an old box of Rock Salt in the garage that we had purchased to make homemade ice cream, which didn’t happen – so after some research I found I could easily substitute the Rock Salt for any Sea Salt in a recipe.  So being the Frugalista that I am, I did just that!  I had all the other ingredients available, so I was set.

Here is the recipe I used:

Relaxing Bath Salts

  •  2 cups Epsom Salt
  •  1 cup sea salt
  •  1/2 cup baking soda
  •  10-15 drops essential oil

Combine the salts and baking soda into a metal or glass bowl. Do not use plastic; it will absorb the scent from the IMG_0376essential oils.

Once the salts and baking soda are mixed well; simply drop in 10-15 drops of your favorite essential oil that is safe for skin contact.

Fill an air tight container with the bath salts, label and you are good to go!

IMG_0378In this particular recipe I used Young Living Lavender essential oil with a few drops of Harmony  {which I love for bringing a calming sense} and Motivation {which is kinda like getting a natural ‘kick in the rear’!}  You can easily experiment with different blends of bath salts for morning and evening using the many different essential oils.  I currently have one I am trying that uses Rosemary  as the base oil.
