Lavender Bath Soaking Salts
Updated: Feb 21, 2022
There is not much that is more relaxing than soaking in a warm bath after a hard day. It gives not only your muscles a chance to relax but it does wonders for your mind as well. If you would like to take your bath to the next level and get even more relaxation benefits out of it, I have a great DIY for you. Lavender soaking salts. These bath salts are easy to make and would also make a great gift. For this project you will need: 3/4 cup unscented Epsom salts, 1/4 cup pink Himalayan salts, 1 to 2 tablespoons each rose petals, lavender buds and calendula petals, 15-20 drops lavender essential oil as well as a glass container to store your salts in. I used these cute glass milk bottles but mason or bail jars or any other air tight glass container you have would work.
To make the salts, Pour your 3/4 cup Epsom salts and your 1/4 Pink Himalayan salt into a mixing bowl and then stir to combine.
Add in your rose & calendula petals along with your lavender buds and stir again to combine. Lastly add in your 15-20 drops of Lavender essential oil and then stir one final time to combine. It is important to make sure you are using a quality lavender essential oil to get all the calming/relaxing benefits from it. I recommend Young Living essential oils(click here to become a Young Living member). Once you have thoroughly combined all your ingredients, pour them into your glass container and they are ready for use.
I would suggest using about a 1/4 cup of the salts in your warm bath water. If you want less clean up of the botanicals after your bath, you can also pour the salts into an empty tea bag and place that in your bath instead of pouring the salts directly in. This way when your bath is finished you won't have to wipe any leftover calendula, rose or lavender buds out of the tub as they will all be contained in the tea bag which you can easily throw away after your bath.
