DIY Bath Salts Recipe for Detoxing and Rejuvenating

    A couple of weeks ago, I shared a tutorial on how to make DIY bath melts, one of my favorite bath treats to help relax and keep my skin moisturized. Today I wanted to share another recipe that can help you take your bath to the spa level: DIY bath salts!

    Creating your own custom bath salts is as easy as 1-2-3. All you need is Epsom salts, some essential oil, baking soda (for extra detoxing and skin softening), and food coloring if you want it to look pretty.

    Bath salts are an amazing addition to your soak for a myriad of reasons. Specifically, Epsom salts (the base of this recipe) are a popular ingredient for the perfect bath. Made up of natural minerals magnesium and sulfate, when absorbed through the skin they can help draw toxins out of the body, repair muscles and joints, and reduce inflammation.

    Epsom salts are also great for relieving stress. Did you know that your body loses magnesium while dialing up adrenaline when you’re stressed out? Absorbing the magnesium from Epsom salts helps produce serotonin, which is a natural chemical in the brain that helps you relax. I keep a huge bag of Dr. Teal’s Epsom Salt Soaking Solution for my baths, which you can find at most drugstores for around $5.

    Have I convinced you that bath salts are something you need in your life? Especially with spring break approaching for me (and ending for many others), a nice and relaxing soak in the tub is a great way to escape and recharge. To enhance the salts, I’m using Omega 3,6, 9 & Evening Primrose oil from Oil Essentials, which helps maintain elasticity and hydration in the skin. For aromatherapy, I’m adding a few drops of Peppermint Essential Oil from InstaNatural (the menthol in this will also give the skin a soothing sensation). You can add whatever oils you personally love— make this recipe your own!
