Natural Herbal Bath Salt Recipes to Help You Relax

By now, we already know how great natural ingredients can be for our health, from using natural skin care to drinking herbal teas, but adding a daily ritual of botanical baths can provide a therapeutic sanctuary, perfect for your needs.

Herbal baths, oils, and bathing salts have been used for thousands of years to help aid relaxation and our overall wellness and can balance a multitude of ailments. The properties of the botanicals released into the warm water mean our skin can absorb the benefits and gain from the calming, soothing compounds. 

They can relax muscles, soften skin, assist in detoxification and promote better sleep – all while allowing you some much-needed mindful me-time!

For best results (and to save on the clean-up), place these bath blends in a reusable tea bag, and let sit in the warm water as the bath fills up. The botanical properties will then infuse the water and leave you with the perfect herbal bath.

To Help You Sleep:

2 Cups of Epsom Salts

1 Cup Baking Soda

4 Drops Lavender Oil

4 Drops Bergamot Oil

4 Drops Sandalwood Oil

This bath salt mixture is formulated to reduce anxiety, help you relax, and promote a deeper sleep. Baking soda is a powerful detoxifying agent and helps balance the water’s pH. Both Bergamot and Lavender have been proven to calm the mind, relax muscles and offset any feelings of stress and anxiety.

To Soothe Muscle Cramps:

2 Cups Epsom Salts

1 Cup Apple Cider Vinegar

6 Drops Clary Sage Oil

4 Drops Chamomile Oil

4 Drops Rose Oil

The Epsom Salts in this blend, which are rich in magnesium sulfate, help reduce water retention and inflammation in your muscles. The apple cider vinegar is rich in calcium and potassium which helps ease muscle tightness, and the clary sage helps you to relax. 

To Relieve Headaches:

2 Cups Epsom Salts

1 Cup Apple Cider Vinegar

4 Drops Peppermint Oil

8 Drops Lavender Oil

Peppermint oil is well known for its invigorating properties, helping to clear the sinuses and relieve any pressure on your head causing the pain. Lavender helps you to relax and clear your mind, while the Epsom Salts are helpful in reducing cortical-spreading depression (the visual and sensory changes that occur during a headache).
