Hi, I want to make some bath salts with essential oils, and I was wondering if you could give me some ideas - what to use, how much, etc. Thanks!
I love to use bath salts for their detoxifying properties, and essential oils make a great addition to a soak. I like to make a mixture of about 1/3 baking soda and 2/3 sea salts (you can use Epsom salts instead). To about 1/4-1/2 cup of this mixture, I add 2-4 drops total of one or more essential oils.
Essential oils I use for bath soaks include neroli (orange blossom), lavender, cedarwood, or chamomile for relaxation. For a more invigorating soak, try ginger, rosemary, or geranium.
You might also want to try adding a tablespoon or so of honey for skin conditioning, or 1/4 cup of fine-ground oatmeal for its soothing properties.
