Relax & Refresh – Homemade natural bath salts recipe!
Want to make your own bath salts?
A couple of weeks ago I shared with you my amazing wake-me-up sugar scrub and today I have another homemade bath product, this time it is relaxation bath salts using my favourite essential oil.
Taking care of your skin!
Like I mentioned in my previous post about my homemade sugar scrub (which FYI is totally great for your morning shower as it is perfect at waking you up and getting you ready to face the day) that I am very fussy about what I put into and onto my body. While the sugar scrub is great for using before or during a shower, these bath salts are perfect for adding to a bath, a perfectly relaxing bath.
I wanted these to be completely relaxing so I had a look at my essential oil collection and stumbled upon my It Works essential oil “Chill”, which is perfect for relaxation. Chill has the perfect blend of calming lavender, clary sage, tangy grapefruit and copaiba, plus its 100% clean and natural and as an added bonus it is non-GMO too. So with all this in mind, let’s get onto how to make your own homemade bath salts.
- 1 ½ cups of Rock Salt.
- ½ a cup of coconut oil as a carrier oil. I used this coconut oil.
- 20 drops of the essential oil of your choice. I chose the It Works Boom Essential Oil.
- A clean, dry container to store it in.
Making the salts is actually very simple, you just need to mix everything together in a bowl until you are confident that everything is well mixed together and the salt is full coated. Once you are satisfied you can decant the salts into a clear container. I like to use these glass jars as they are perfect for storage and for keeping things fresh.
Why I love bath salts!
Bath salts are perfect for diffusing essential oils within the water of your bath, are easy on your skin and with the carrier oil help to keep your skin soft too. You can also use salts as a scrub (I recommend a finer salt than rock salt) which like the sugar scrub will help to remove dead skin cells and help you get a smoother skin. The addition of essential oils in these bath salts not only creates a relaxing aroma but also provide a number of healing properties, physically, mentally and emotionally.
