Make it Yourself Monday-Bath Salt Recipes

Here are a few quick and easy Bath Salt Recipes. Great for soaking away tensions after a long, hard day at work, or for easing the muscle aches of exercise. Whatever your reason, be sure to find one and enjoy a nice long soak!

Balancing Bath Soak

3 Tbs. Dead Sea Salts
3 Tbs. Baking Soda
8 drops Essential Oil of choice from the following list, or a blend of 3 or 4 of these oils, totaling the 8 drops. Use bergamot, geranium, lavender, palmarosa, rose and/or rosewood.

Buttermilk Bath 

1 cup your choice of bath salts (European, Dead Sea, Epsome or other specialty salt)
1 cup powdered buttermilk (get this at your local grocery store in the baking isle)
up to 24 drops of your choice of essential oils

Mix the bath salt and buttermilk powder together in a jar and add up to 24 drops of essential oil, or a blend, totaling no more than 24 drops of EO's into that jar. Cover and shake, shake, shake, blending well. Keep it sealed in the jar for several days before using, continuing to shake and blend daily. Store in the sealed jar when not opening for use. To use, pour 1/2 cup into your bath water and allow to dissolve before getting into tub. So this recipe makes 4 baths! 

Dreamy Soak

2 cups Dead Sea Salts
2 Tbs baking soda
5 drops rosewood Essential Oil
2 drops cedarwood EO
2 drops chamomile EO

Mix the salts and the baking soda in a bowl. Blend it very well. Then mix the oils in a small cup. Once mixed, take them and pour them evenly over the salt mixture, then blend very well. Let this mixture sit for at least one hour before placing in a jar and sealing.
