DIY Rejuvenating Bath Salts

Written by Ashley Palmer | October 5, 2011

Sad, but true: Have you ever felt like the only time you have to yourself is when you’re in the bathroom? It can easily happen if school, work, or family has got you feeling stressed. Been there, done that. The best cure I’ve found for my rundown body (and mind) is taking some time just for me—and that usually includes a nice, long bath.

So, the next time your body is feeling overwhelmed or neglected, give yourself 30 minutes and run a warm bath filled with these detoxifying bath salts to help rejuvenate your body and mind.

The key ingredient in this mixture is Epsom salts. They are known to have many health benefits, and they ease various aches and pains. Also, the magnesium in the compound helps to release serotonin in the body, which leaves you feeling calm and relaxed. Be sure to purchase a cruelty-free baking soda as well as sea salt and an essential oil in your favorite scent.

1/2 cup sea salt
1/4 cup cruelty-free baking soda
3-4 drops essential oil

  • Combine all the ingredients together, and store in a jar with a lid.

Makes 1 1/2 cups bath salts

    We are getting ready to purchase our first home about a month before Christmas so money will be short for gifts this year. This would be something great that I could make for family and friends. They would love it and it would be a great opportunity to open some minds about cruelty free products! 🙂 Thanks!

    I will definitely have to try these! My biggest stress reliever is going for a drive and listening to some of my favorite songs by some great artists (The Who and The Beatles!) and it always puts me in a better mood. 🙂

    I try to walk slowly even when I am in a hurry. It is amazing how slowing your pace, walking carefully and with awareness and enjoying the scenery, trees etc. will calm your mind. Don’t hurry !

    Wow, I didn’t know all those things about baking soda. So if I can’t get Bob’s locally, I’ll order some online. Thanks for the heads up!
