Make Your Own Aromatherapy Bath Salts in Ten Minutes or Less

Edit Article |

Posted: Jan 28, 2009 |Comments: 0



Aromatherapy bath salts are one of the quickest, easiest goodies to make for the bath – and one of the most healing. With just a few simple ingredients you can make your own aromatherapy bath salts to ease your aching back, calm your frazzled nerves or relax yourself for a deep, restful sleep.

We all need down time, and we all need to have fun. Life is so busy these days that it can be hard to carve out the time. Making your own aromatherapy bath salts is a great way to give yourself a break.

First, you give yourself some ‘fun’ time by making your scented bath salts – mixing, stirring, smelling… and, most especially, experimenting. Don’t be afraid to blend together a few of your favorite essential oils to create your own custom scent. Play! The creative process is half the fun.

Second, you actually have to lie in the bath for a while (here’s your down-time) to use your aromatherapy bath salts. Give yourself candles, a glass of wine or tea, soothing music – all those good, stress-draining, nerve-calming accessories. Lock the door and slide into warm, scented bliss – your own hand made, master crafted aromatherapy bath salts, created just for you!

Aromatherapy Bath Salts Quick Trick

If you honestly don’t have time to make bath salts but you still want some aromatic down-time in the tub, try this instant ‘cheat’. Add 1 to 2 cups of Epsom Salt to your hot running bathwater. Pour a tablespoon of vegetable oil (any type will do) into a small glass. Add 10 drops of your favorite essential oil. Adjust the water temperature and slide into the tub. Pour in the essential oil mixture and swish it around a bit. Lie back and relax.

10 Minute Aromatherapy Bath Salt Recipe

3 cups Epsom Salt
1/2 cup Baking Soda
15 drops of your favorite Essential Oil (or one of the blends below)
Optional: 10 drops of your choice of food coloring

Measure salt and baking soda into a large glass, ceramic or stainless steel bowl (not plastic – it will absorb the essential oils.)
[Three minutes]

Stir together the salt and baking soda using a metal spoon (a wooden spoon will absorb the essential oils.)
[One minute]

Drop in the essential oils and food coloring, placing each drop in its own little spot on top of the salt.
[Two minutes]

Stir until thoroughly mixed.
[One minute, maybe two]

Pour your essential oil bath salt mixture in a dark glass or PET plastic jar. Click on the following link to learn why you should use dark glass.
[One minute]

That’s it! Nine minutes (plus one extra for spills or finding your glasses.) Quick, easy, painless!

It’s best to let your aromatherapy bath salts cure at least 24 hours before using them so the salt can really absorb the aroma.

Use about one cup of salts per bath. This aromatherapy bath salt recipe makes enough for three baths.

Essential Oil Bath Salt Blends

Cheer Up! Essential Oil Bath Salt Blend

7 drops Bergamot essential oil

7 drops Sweet Orange essential oil

1 drop Rose Geranium essential oil

Super Sedative Essential Oil Bath Salt Blend

8 drops Sandalwood essential oil

4 drops Lavender essential oil

3 drops Cedar essential oil

Pain Relief Essential Oil Bath Salt Blend

10 drops Lavender essential oil

3 drops Chamomile essential oil

2 drops Marjoram essential oil

Making your own aromatherapy bath salts is so easy and quick that almost anyone can do it. It’s a great activity to do with your children or grandchildren (just make sure an adult handles the essential oils.) Family time and play time all in one!

Plus, aromatherapy bath salts make great gifts – why not make up a big batch and share the love. We all have friends and relatives who could use a friendly jar of aromatherapy bath salts. Just remember to save some for yourself!

Heartburn Attacks? Controlling Your Lifestyle

Heartburn is caused by acid reflux. When swallowing your meals, food passes from your mouth down a tube called the esophagus. To enter the stomach, the food must pass through an opening between the esophagus and stomach called the lower esophageal sphincter. This opening functions like a gate to allow food to pass into the stomach.
