Aromatherapy Bath Salts

Making your own aromatherapy bath salts is fun, easy and super-beneficial to your skin!  Who doesn't love a relaxing soak in the tub after a long day?  With a few simple ingredients, you can turn average bath time into a luxurious, skin-loving, aromatherapeutic experience! 

A good homemade bath salt recipe will include your choice of the following ingredients:

  • Epsom Salts has been used for natural remedies for years.  From exfoliating dead skin cells to muscle cramp and pain relief, this is a staple to your bath salts recipe.
  • Baking Soda-is used to detoxify the body from excess alcohol, caffeine and other medications.  After a long soak in a baking soda bath, you will feel renewed and refreshed!
  • Citric Acid-Adding citric acid to your bath salts recipes will help to preserve your homemade skin care products.  Combined with baking soda, you will have a slightly fizzy, skin-softening addition to your recipe.

Aromatherapy Bath Salts Recipe #1


  • 2 1/2 C. Epsom Salts
  • 1 C Baking Soda
  • 1/2 C of Citric Acid
  • 2 1/2 tsp Sweet Almond Oil (or carrier oil of your choice)
  • Various Essential Oils Recipes

<-----I made this batch with a eucalyptus, ginger and peppermint essential oils recipe for a muscle-relaxing soak!


  1. Combine the dry ingredients into a mixing bowl until all of the clumps are broken.
  2. Mix your essential oils blend and set to the side. Between 1 & 1 1/2 tsp. should be enough for this recipe.  It's hard to convert to drops but about 60 drops is a good estimate.
  3. Add the carrier oil to your essential oils recipe.
  4. Mix everything together and blend it well.  Use your hands if you need to!
  5. Package in  a plastic jar or bag.  

The combination of citric acid,  baking soda & moisture can have a pressure build-up and that is  no bueno!
