Hot baths can help relax, relieve sore muscles and joints. Adding essential oils or bath salts to your bath can help you have a more luxurious experience.
Here is how to create your homemade bath salts with essential oils, quick and easy!
DIY & Relax: Lavender Eucalyptus Bath Salt
- 1 cup Epsom Salt / Himalayan Pink Salt
- ¼ cup coconut oil
- 5 drops Lavender essential oil
- 5 drops Eucalyptus essential oil
- optional: 2 tablespoons baking soda
- optional: natural food coloring
Mix all ingredients together.
Store the mix in a glass jar.
Decorate with 2-3 tablespoons of dried flowers or herbs.
Variations: other essential oils that are good for bath salts include chamomile, ylang-ylang, citrus oils, such as grapefruit, lemon, and bergamot, sandalwood.
Another creative idea is to make bath balls with essential oils.
When making scented bath salts with essential oils, always store your scented salts in airtight glass containers.
Enjoy your bath with a hot cup of chamomile, lavender, or peppermint tea with honey. Take your time — any amount of time. Just breathe and relax.
Always dilute your essential oils with a carrier oil (vegetable oil) before adding them to your bath! Since oils float in water and tend to stick to surfaces they touch, like your skin, the concentrated essential oil is more likely to irritate the skin if not diluted in a carrier oil.
Do not use essential oils on broken, inflamed, or irritated skin.
