Basic Bubble Bath Salt Recipe

All the talk about healing baths last week sent me on a mission to find out more about making my own bath salts. After doing a little research I was introduced to the many therapeutic and healing benefits of dead sea salt.

One of the advantages of soaking in this wonder ingredient is younger looking skin because dead sea salt slows the skin aging process. The fountain of youth? Sounds good to me. What could be more decadent than adding bubbles to your salt bath? Here is a basic recipe for making bubble bath salt.

via Easy Aromatherapy Recipes
Constitute (adapted from Easy Aromatherapy Recipes): 
  1. Measure the salt into a large ceramic, glass or metal bowl (not plastic - it will absorb the essential oils and be ruined.)

  2. In a separate bowl, stir together the remaining ingredients until thoroughly mixed. I recommend using a metal spoon - a wooden or plastic spoon also absorbs essential oils.

  3. Pour the soap mixture into the salt and stir until the salt is evenly coated.

  4. Spoon the lavender bubble bath salts into a dark glass or PET plastic jar and let cure for 24 hours before using.

  5. Use about one cup of salts per bath. This bath salt recipe makes enough for three baths.

Adding Essential Oils:

Essential oils can greatly enhance your salt recipes with aromatherapy however, they can also be very expensive so I have omitted all but one from the original recipe. Essential oils can cause allergic reactions when used on skin undiluted and not all essential oils are suitable for use in bath recipes. Add responsibly and be sure to do your research.

Note: Bath salt recipe is reblogged and adapted from Easy Aromatherapy Recipes.  All ingredients can be purchased at reasonable prices from Mountain Rose Herbs.
