Soothing Bath Salts

The baking soda in these salts will both soothe you skin and soften hard water. Lemon Balm essential oil can help relieve skin irritations. Rose and lavender essential oils work together to create a fragrance that is both a classic and gorgeous.

Soothing Bath Salts

  • 1 cup baking soda
  • 2 cup medium sea salt or 1 1/2 cups sea salt and 1/2 cup Himalaya salts
  • 5 drops rose essential oil
  • 5 drops lemon balm essential
  • 5 drops lavender essential oil

Place the salts and baking soda in a non-metallic bowl and stir to combine. Add the essential oils and stir to distribute. 

Alternatively place the salts and baking soda in a large glass jar with a tight fitting lid. Shake to combine. Add the essential oils and shake again to distribute the oils through the salt mixture

Will keep for up to 12 months in an airtight container.

To use dissolve 1/4 cup of the bath salts in running water and enjoy.
