Bath Salts

Bath salts have often been considered a fragrant luxury, but yet they are so simple to make and the ways that they can be customized are endless.

Color, scent, additives all make the difference between batches, make something light and fresh such as a summery orange salt, or something a little heavier such as a rose for the more decedant days of pampering.

Base Recipe No.1

The basic ingredients and utensils consist of fairly common ingredients most often found in grocery cupboards:

  • Coarse Sea Salt
  • Electric Coffee Grinder or Mortar & Pestle
  • Some fragrance oils
  • Additives such as flower petals (Optional)

Here are two recipes to try:

Reviving Rose Bath Salts

Lifts the spirits and scents the skin. Makes about 500g.

  • 10g Dried Rose Petals
  • 500g Coarse Sea Salt
  • 10 drops rose geranium essential oil
  • 5 drops lavender essential oil
  • 5 drops bergamot essential oil
  • 1 decorative jar or container

Grind all the ingredients, except for a handful of the rose petals. Use a coffee grinder or mortar and pestle. 

Once everything has been ground to the consistency you desire, add the handful of extra rose petals and stir in using a spoon.

Spoon into the decorative jar and seal with the lid. 

Store in a dry cool place, tightly sealed.

Use as desired when you need a soothing reviving bath after a long day.

Calming Bath Salt Blend

This blend is prefect to use when bathng before bedtime. Chamomile is a known sedative, and has been combined here with sweet marjoram which helps with insomnia. This blend should only be used if you are planning to go to sleep soon after your bath, sweet marjoram is also an anaphrodisiac which means it has the opposite effect to an aphrodisiac. 

Makes about 500g.

  • 500g Coarse Sea Salt
  • 10 drops chamomile essential oil
  • 10 drops sweet marjoram essential oil
  • 1-3 drops green food coloring (do not put more then 3 drops)
  • 1 decorative jar or container

Mix all the ingredients together and place in the decorative jar.

NOTE: If you prefer a finer bath salt blend then you can grind the mixture in your coffee grinder to the consistency you desire.

Base Recipe No.2

This a second recipe which can be used as a base for bath salts.

  • Epsom salt – 1/2 cup
  • Baking soda – 1/2 cup
  • Borax – 1/2 cup
  • Food coloring – 4 drops
  • Scented oil – 40 drops
