Easy Bath Salt Recipes
I would like to share with you some of the bath products recipes I have been using and making myself. Learn how to make a bath salt to soak in the tub relieving sore, achy muscles.
Making your own skin care products allows you to create your own inspired blend. Be sure to record the amounts you add……because that one you forget to may be the perfect one!
The bath salt recipe I use the most is:
- 1 3/4 cups Epsom Salt
- 1 cup Dead Sea Salt
- 1/4 Cup Sea Salt
This recipe makes 4 cups of bath salts.
Epsom salts are good to add to your bath salt recipe as they are known to contain minerals that help to relieve sore muscles as well as help to reduce stress, remove toxins and relax your body.
Ultra Epsom Premium Epsom Salt, Extra Fine – 5 lb Bag
Dead sea salt is full of incredible minerals, this salt will have it’s own page later on. The minerals from Dead sea salt have been said to help with skin conditions and stimulate the blood circulation.
Minera Dead Sea Salt, 5lbs Coarse. 100% Pure and Certified. Natural Treatment For Psoriasis, Eczema, Acne And More
The many minerals in Sea Salts act as a detoxifier, moisturizer and like when you go to the dentist and after a dental procedure they tell you to rinse with salt water – well the same antibacterial effects work on your skin when you soak in a bath with added bath salts.
If you want to experiment and add other things to your bath salt like scent etc.
Be creative, split your bath salt recipe in half and try a couple of the following additions:
Cocoa Butter (453 g), Certified Organic Bar, Raw Unrefined, Non-Deodorized, Rich In Antioxidants Great For DIY Recipes, Lip Balms, Lotions, Creams, Stretch Marks by Mary Tylor Naturals
Just add the one of the following to two cups of bath salt:
- 1 – 2 Tablespoons of finely grated cocoa butter
- 1 Tablespoon of Green Clay
- 1/4 – 1/2 tsp of Essential oils
- 1 Tablespoon ground flower petals
- 1/4 – 1/2 tsp natural color
Lavender Bath Salt
To create a nice relaxing Lavender Bath Salt
Mix the following:
- 1/2 – 1 tsp lavender essential oil
- 1 Tablespoon of dried lavender petals
- 1/2 tsp of ratonjot or indigo natural color will give a nice color.
or maybe you’d like to try a…..
Rose Scented Bath Salts
- 1/2 to 1 tsp Rose Geranium Essential Oils
- 1 Tablespoon Pink Clay
- 2 Tablespoons of dried Rose Petal
- 1 tsp Madder Root Powder
Play with the recipes and make your own wonderful bath salts.
You don’t have to use the exact measurement for the salts.
To make any 2 cups of bath salts you can add any combination of Epsom Salts, solar, celtic, sea, bali, or hawaiian salt.
Some salts have a color and mixing them with the epsom salts makes a nice looking bath salt. Great for gifts.
The package below has a great mixture of sea salts to try out or add to your recipe for color

I absolutely love to take a long hot bath after a long stressful day. I have tried a lot of bubbles, powders, and those little tablet things that fizz. I love epsom salts, they make you feel very invigorated. I think you have some great ideas, and I am going to devise a plan and make my own bath salts this weekend. Thank you.
Yes Epsom salts are so good for you. I hope you enjoy your weekend and have fun making bath salts! Don’t forget to record the recipe you create. Have a great weekend
Hello, I absolutely loved your website. I haven’t taken a bath in a long time and looking at the bath salts recipes, It makes me want to take one with the candles lit and just enjoying a long hot bath. Which kind of impossible being I don’t have a bath tub, only a shower ;(. If I make my own like in your recipes, I might just call up my mom and tell her I am coming over for a bath lol It really is soothing and you had some good information. Thank you again for sharing this with us.
Hi Crystal, to bad you don’t have a tub. I find it so relaxing after a long day working to soak in a tub of great bathsalts. You might just have to take over yours Mom’s lol. Have a great day!
Those epsom salts sound like a great idea to bathe in after a long hard week at work, well done on the site.
Hello and thank you for this article. I want to surprise my girlfriend for our anniversary and after home made dinner I will use one of your recipes to make her a bath with your bath salts. Now, I wanted to know can these bath salts cause any allergic reaction?
Also, how long does the proccess of making bath salts lasts? I do not have experience in this field and I would not like to mess up.
You are so kind for sharing this wonderful information so people can create their own bath salts.
Thank you in advance.
Like anything Strahinja people sometimes have reactions to things so in the case of bath salts if a person developed a rash or itchy skin I would stop use.
It doesn’t take very long to make your bath salts and you will enjoy the long lasting scents.
Great topic and you have given me a great idea for a gift for my wife.
I personally am not into taking bath’s, but my wife loves to. As I read this, the idea came to me to make my wife her own ‘unique’ blend of bath products and give them to her as a gift! 🙂
Making your own bath body care products is not something that everyone can do, it take a lot of work and time to get the correct mix for your favorite bath care product.Anyone with a skin health condition such as psoriasis, eczema or acne would be well advised to try the Minera 100% pure certified dead sea salt product, it seems to stimulate blood circulation as well as well as acting to detox and moisturize the skin.
Bath Salts are so good for the skin, but year the dead sea salts with the many minerals help to stimulate blood circulations and do really help conditions such as psoriasis and eczema. Minera is a really good brand. Here is a link to purchase
I never really thought about making my own bath salt. Seems like a interesting project, especially around the holidays. Might even be neat gifts to give homemade salts to friends and relatives. Can’t believe how much money we pay for this to be done for us when it is really easy to do it yourself and probably will be a lot better quality too. Gonna give this a try ASAP.
It really is pretty easy to make your own bath salts. Great project to do with the kids or grandkids. My grandkids and I use to make them for their Mom and other Grandmother for Christmas every year.
