15 Recipes for Relaxing Bath Salts

Making bath salts is incredibly easy!

Combine the following ingredients, trying to somewhat evenly distribute the essential oil.  Once mixed well, store the bath salts in a glass container like this or this or this or this.   And tie a fun (and functional) spoon or scoop (like this or this or this) to the jar to make a super cute gift!

Depending on the size of your tub, use about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of this salt blend per bath.

Here are some of my favorite relaxing essential oils and oil blends for baths:

  • 4 drops lavender and 4 drops cedarwood
  • 4 drops bergamot and 4 drops lavender
  • 2 drops lavender, 3 drops wild orange, and 4 drops cedarwood
  • 4 drops Roman chamomile, 2 drops cedarwood, and 3 drops lavender
  • 3 drops patchouli, 3 drops wild orange, and 3 drops frankincense
  • 4 drops lavender and 4 drops frankincense
  • 8-10 drops grounding blend
  • 8-10 drops calming blend
  • 4 drops cedarwood and 4 drops patchouli
  • 4 drops cedarwood and 4 drops vetiver
  • 8-10 drops lavender
  • 4 drops lavender, 2 drops ylang ylang, and 2 drops wild orange
  • 5 drops calming blend and 3 drops lavender
  • 4 drops frankincense and 4 drops sandalwood
  • 4 drops sandalwood and 4 drops lavender
  • 4 drops lavender, 2 drops geranium, and 2 drops Roman chamomile

It’s super fun to make bath salts.  They make great gifts.  And of course, it’s incredibly relaxing to take baths, especially at the end of a long, stressful day.

But why do we add Epsom salts, sea salt, baking soda, and essential oils to our baths?  What does each of these ingredients do for us?  What ‘s the benefit of adding them?
