3 Amazing Bath Salt Recipes

 

Today I’m posting three of my favorite bath salt recipes. The first recipe is for dry skin, the second for oily skin, and the third for a good dose of rest and relaxation.


Bath Salts Recipe: # 1 dry skin

Ingredients:

1/2 cup Modified Tapioca Starch

1 cup Baking soda

5 cups Dead Sea salt

1 ½ Tsp Roman chamomile essential oil. For more information on Roman Chamomile essential oil click here.

1 ½ Tsp lavender essential oil. For more information on lavender essential oil click here.

1/16 – 1/8 tsp mica or soap safe colorant 1 drop at a time (optional)

Instructions:

Add essential oils to the tapioca starch and mix well.

Stir in salts to the tapioca starch/essential oil mix. Note: too much liquid colorant may start the baking soda fizzing. Colored micas may also be used by thoroughly mixing in a tiny amount at a time.

Bath salts recipe: # 2 for oily skin

Bath salts recipe: # 3 for a totally relaxing bath

1/2 cup Modified Tapioca Starch

1 cup Baking soda

5 cups Dead Sea salt

1 ½ Tsp frankincense essential oil. For more information on frankincense essential oil click here.

1 ½ Tsp lavender essential oil

1/16 – 1/8 tsp mica or soap safe colorant 1 drop at a time (optional)

Instructions:

Add essential oils to the tapioca starch and mix well.

Stir in salts to the tapioca starch/essential oil mix. Note: too much liquid colorant may start the baking soda fizzing. Colored micas may also be used by thoroughly mixing in a tiny amount at a time.
You’ll notice that each bath salt recipe is identical with the exception of the essential oils used. Here’s a little hint. Since you’ll be adding from ½ to 1 cup of salts to your bath at a time, by cutting the basic bath salts ingredients in half, and adding different essential oil combinations to each half, you will have roughly 3 cups of bath salts or enough for from 3 to six baths. That way you can have three to six baths with one combination of essential oils and three to six baths with another combination.

Another thing, I would consider is leaving out the colorant unless you’re making the bath salts as a gift. You don’t really need colorant, it’s purely for looks and it complicates things. If you do use colorants, use discretion. A small amount goes a long way.

Now go have fun and relax.

  1. I’m very new to making my own things as this so please don’t laugh
    But what is “modified starch ” ? Thanks

  2. Modified starch is able to absorb and carry large quantities of oils (such as bath and fragrance oils). It creates “pockets” that can carry the oils in a dry solid, powder form. Once it comes in contact with water, it immediately dissolves releasing all of the oil into the water. It gives bath water a soft feel and does not leave a film. 🙂
