Don’t you just love to soak in a hot bath after working in the garden all day? With a few easy ingredients, that bath can be even better!
We all know that an Epsom Salts Bath is great for aching muscles but did you know that it can help relieve a migraine? Yep, add some baking soda and it’s a great skin softener and detox as well. A few drops of your favorite essential oil and you have your very own spa treatment right at home. I love concocting my own beauty products and this is one of my absolute favorite bath salt recipes.
I should add a Disclaimer here….I am not a doctor nor do I play one on TV. So don’t take my word as gospel and do your own research before using this recipe.
Important Note: some essential oils should not be used during pregnancy!
- -Epsom Salts
- -Baking Soda
- -Peppermint Essential Oil (make sure to get pure essential oil, not the kind for candle making)
The basic ratio is 2 to 1: 2 parts Epsom Salts to 1 part Baking Soda.
For this mixture, I used:
4 Cups Epsom Salts
2 Cups Baking Soda
1/4 tsp Peppermint Essential Oil (more or less to your taste)
Mix the salt and baking soda in a large bowl. Add the peppermint oil and stir well. Store in a sealable container. This also makes a fantastic gift!
Sprinkle 1/2 to 1 Cup of bath salts into running, hot water. Grab a glass of wine and enjoy a long soak! Did you try it? Leave me a comment below and let me know what you think!
