Bath Salt recipes
After a long day, a nice long soak in a hot bath is just the thing. Adding bath salts can enhance the relaxation and experience greatly. Whether you have sore, tired feet from standing all day, or a stiff back from working at your desk, bath salts can help improve the way you feel and ease away the tension. Not only do bath salts come in a variety of soothing fragrances, they also offer many other benefits including certain healing properties.
Adding a little salt to your water can actually help improve your circulation. Bath salts also reduce tenderness. They are recommended for people with back pain, arthritis, muscle tension or spasms, and minor work and sports injuries. They’re great for easing stiff, sore, muscles and aching feet and legs.
Bath salts open the pores to purify the skin, cleansing away dirt, sweat, and toxins. They aid in the healing of dry skin, making skin softer and more supple. Salts can help improve common irritations such as insect bites, minor rashes, and calluses on feet, as well as more serious skin conditions like athlete’s foot, eczema, and psoriasis. High quality salts may also help improve the appearance of scars.
Salts made with essential oils offer the added benefit of aromatherapy bath salts. Pleasant, soothing scents have been shown to induce calmness and promote relaxation. Scented bath salts combine these attributes with other healing properties. The ability to relax and unwind at the end of the day is also the best way to insure sound, restful sleep at night, and bath salts can help.
Salts, such as bath salt or Epsom salt, are also good for exfoliation. Gently rub salt over feet, knees, or elbows, with a damp washcloth. Exfoliation should be completed, and exfoliated areas should be rinsed thoroughly, before you take a bath. Fresh, newly uncovered skin will also benefit from soaking in water treated with salts.

Oils for making bath salts
Blending Bath Salts:
Bath Salts: Sea salts and fragrance or essential oils are a wonderfully synergistic combination. The relaxing properties of hot water compliment the effects of well chosen salts and oils. Aromatic baths can provide relief from stress and anxiety, assist with muscle and joint pains, and treat the symptoms of more severe skin conditions. Both men and women are enjoying aromatic baths in increasing numbers. The therapeutic benefits of sea salt baths are well known and often recommended by doctors for treating a wide range of medical conditions.
Aroma Therapy: Aromatherapy is the practice of controlled use of essential oils to maintain and promote physical, psychological, and spiritual well being. As a holistic medicine, Aromatherapy is both a preventative approach as well as an active treatment during acute and chronic stages of illness.
Dried Herbs: Many dried herbs possess the same scent and healing properties of their essential oil counterparts. Herbs are popular additions to bath salts and bath teas and look great in a finished product, one draw back is that it can be messy in the tub. A good option is to include an organza bag with your salts to use as a tea bag – the salts melt, the herbs seep in the hot bath water and once the bag dries it is easy to empty out the herbs and re-use the bag.
Carrier Oils: moisturizing vegetable oils are commonly used as a “carrier” for essential oils. Most essential oils are too strong to apply directly to the skin and should be diluted 12-30 drops to 1oz of carrier oil. Carrier oils are also combined with sea salts to create defoliant salt scrubs.
Hydrogen Peroxide: Adding hydrogen peroxide to bathwater increases oxygen available to the body. Hydrogen peroxide baths leave the body feeling alert and revitalized, like just after a rain shower. This gentle bath is antibacterial, antiviral, and cleansing to the emotional and energetic bodies. Add six ounces of food-grade hydrogen peroxide to a hot bath and soak for 20-30 minutes. Be careful in handling this concentrated solution of hydrogen peroxide as it can “burn” or irritate the skin. Diluted in the bathwater, it is fine for skin contact.
Apple Cider Vinegar: Apple cider vinegar baths restore a natural pH to the skin and hair, as well as rejuvenating and building up the body’s resistance. It helps restore acid mantle protection to the skin, which is lost from swimming and from routine use of soaps on the skin. It thus helps combat “unfriendly” bacteria, fungal overgrowth, and as helpful with vaginal and bladder infections. Apple cider vinegar baths are soothing to the skin, alleviating itchiness, poison ivy, and sunburn discomfort. As with all hot baths, it causes the pores to open and aids in general systemic detoxification. Make certain to use pure, unprocessed apply cider vinegar. Use 2-4 cups in a hot bath.
Sodium Bicarbonate: A hot bath with equal parts of baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) and sea salt assists in detoxification from exposure to heavy metals and radiation. It is also beneficial for cleansing the theauric field, and for soothing itchy skin. In combination, use 1-2 pounds of each. Sea salts is recommended, as opposed to rock salt or common table salt, which are depleted of nourishing minerals.
Citric Acid: Citric Acid is a key ingredient, along with Sodium Bicarbonate, for bath fizzies (recipe below). It is also great for making fizzy bath salts. The combination creates an effervescent blend that helps release the aroma of your essential oils into the air, creating an uplifting aromatic bath.
Colorants: FD&C dyes dispersed in liquid or glycerin are popular for adding color to bath salts. Herbs can also be used to create beautiful natural colors for your salts. Powdered Mica can create beautiful pearl essence salt.
