3 Amazing Bath Salt Recipes

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.


Vicki’s Favorite Bath Salt Recipes

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

1/2 cup Modified Tapioca Starch

1 cup Baking soda

5 cups Dead Sea salt

1 1/2 tsp Clary Sage Essential Oil. For more information on Clary sage essential oil click here.

1 1/2 tsp Lemon Essential Oil

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

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.
