Aromatherapy bath salts are one of the quickest, easiest things you can do to add a "lift" to the bath- and one of the most healing. With just a few simple ingredients, you can make your own bath salts to ease your back pain, de-stress your day or prepare yourself for a deep, restful sleep.
Bath Salt Recipe
3 cups Epsom Salt
1/2 cup Baking Soda
15 drops of your favorite Essential Oil (or one of the blends below)
Measure salt and baking soda into a large glass, ceramic or stainless steel bowl (not plastic - it will absorb the essential oils.)
Stir together the salt and baking soda using a metal spoon (a wooden spoon will absorb the essential oils.)
Drop in the essential oils, placing each drop in its own little spot on top of the salt.
Stir until thoroughly mixed.
[ two minutes]
Pour your essential oil bath salt mixture in a dark glass or PET plastic jar.
It's best to let your aromatherapy bath salts cure at least 24 hours before using them so the salt can really absorb the aroma.
Use about one cup of salts per bath. This aromatherapy bath salt recipe makes enough for three baths.
