Today I have a simple recipe for a homemade bath soak. Enjoy!

My favorite way to soak in the tub is to use this relaxing bath salt recipe. Many natural health practitioners suggest epsom salt & baking soda are gentle aids in detoxifying the body. The added essential oils in this soak further the relaxation and cleansing properties.

In this particular blend, I used a combination of lavender, juniper & patchouli oils. I found this on pinterest to give you some more ideas and I just added to my essential oil collection this winter with this company (lots of good recipes on how to use oils on their blog too!) Now, on to the recipe…..


Aromatherapy Tub Soak::

1 1/2 cups epsom salt

3/4 cup baking soda

20-30 drops of essential oil

Mix the epsom salt & baking soda together, breaking up any clumps of baking soda as you mix. Slowly add the essential oil, mixing well after every ten drops. I use a metal spoon to gently break apart any clumps of oil. Mix until you no longer see any clumps. Store in an airtight container. I use 1/4 to 1/2 cup per bath.


Don't forget to keep some for yourself!
