Nothing more relaxing than soaking in a bathtub with homemade luxurious scented bath salts like lavender or rose. It’s easy to make your own, no experience required just a few instructions. Scented bath salts also make wonderful gifts for any occasion, put some in a small cute jar with some ribbon.

The Benefits

The main ingredient in Bath Salts is Epsom Salts, Epsom Salts or magnesium sulfate is a compound made of magnesium sulfur and oxygen. Medicinal uses of Epsom Salts goes back hundreds of years, it was named from the town Epsom in Surrey, England.  It is claimed by people (there is no medical evidence) that when soaking in a bath of Epsom salts, your body absorbs some of the magnesium and magnesium is essential for sleep and stress management. It is also claimed with no medical proof that soaking in a bath can reduce muscle soreness and can reduce pain and swelling. Honestly whether any of these claims are true or not, it feels good to soak in a bathtub with scented salts and just relax and let the worries of the day float away.

You will need:

2 Cups Plain Epsom Salts/Magnesium Sulfate in a clean bowl, you can buy a large bag on Amazon or most drug stores
4 Tablespoons Baking Soda
Mix well, some recipes call for sea salt, I haven’t used sea salt in this recipe but you can search online for different recipes
Add 6-8 drops of Essential Oils, Lavender is the most popular but it can also be combined with other oils like sweet orange or eucalyptus. You can try rose, freesia, pick something that you really like. If you think you’ve added too much essential oils and it’s too strong just add more Epsom salt in and mix well to absorb. Be careful and check the labels, pregnant women and small children should not use some essential oils.

Make it pretty

Mix well, put in a pretty jar with rose petals. If you want your bath salts colored you can add a few drops of food-grade liquid coloring or a naturally sourced plant-based dye, start with just a few drops at first, a little goes a long way, and then add more if needed 1 drop at a time. Now you’ve got the recipe to make your own Luxurious Scented Bath Salts.
