Bath Salts SO Easy to Make, Even My 2 Year Old Could Make These
Who doesn’t love a great bath? I have found that incorporating a relaxing detox bath with Epsom salt into my routine helps me destress and unwind. This is my favorite and most used thing in my self-care routine so I will go into good detail on this. 😉 Oil and water do not mix so mixing essential oil with Epsom salt is a great way to add two amazing products to your bath!
Find an Epsom salt that only contains magnesium sulfate (MgSO4) without any fillers or additional ingredients, like this one on Amazon.
Epsom salt has 7 amazing benefits: boosts magnesium levels, reduces stress, eliminates toxins, relieves constipation, reduces pain & inflammation, improves blood sugar levels, and volumizes hair.
Take about 1-2 cups of salts and mix with your preference of essential oils. I typically use about 5-8 drops per cup of salts. By using essential oils with the salts, you will also benefit from the therapeutic properties of the oils. Lavender and Frankincense oils are my favorites to use for when I want to relax. For those days that I have a tough workout or have worked hard in our yard, I use Peppermint to relieve sore muscles. You can even use Eucalyptus oil to help if your breathing needs some support! The oily combinations are endless so you can truly customize your bath experience however you want!
Once your oil is mixed with the Epsom salt, pour into your bath under the running water and mix it into your bath water. I keep two glass jars of ready to use Epsom salt beside my tub with my favorite two oily combinations; this way I don’t have to mix it for every bath. I also have one jar of just salts for when I decide to use only salt in my bath or mix up a different oily combination!
It is so much fun to be able to create your own spa experience at home! Enjoy!
