Pain Relief Bath Salts Recipe

© Rebecca Dawn Dillon

Ingredients:

17 oz. Epsom salt
.7 oz. fractionated coconut oil (or other carrier oil of choice)
.1 oz. polysorbate 80 (optional)
1 mL tangerine essential oil
1 mL peppermint essential oil
1 mL eucalyptus essential oil

Instructions:

To make these pain relief bath salts, begin by weighing out the Epsom salt into a large glass bowl. Set aside.

In a separate container weigh out the fractionated coconut oil and polysorbate 80. Mix well.

(Polysorbate 80 is a solubilizer that bonds with oil. It will keep the essential oils and fractionated coconut oil from sitting on top of the water in your tub. While this product is optional, it is recommended especially in the absence of a carrier oil so that your skin isn’t coming into contact with the essential oils undiluted in bath water when adding essential oils to bath salts.)

Then using graduated plastic transfer pipettes, measure out and add the essential oil. Stir to combine.

Now combine the wet ingredients with the Epsom salt and mix until all of the ingredients are incorporated evenly throughout the bath salts.

Package your pain relief bath salts in your container of choice then label as desired for personal use or gifting.

To use your pain relief bath salts, add 1/2 to 1 cup to warm bath water as desired and soak for 20 minutes.

Ingredients:

8 oz. dead sea salt
4 oz. Epsom salt
1 Tablespoon chamomile flowers
1 Tablespoon calendula petals
.4 oz. fractionated coconut oil

Instructions:

Using a digital scale, weigh out the dead sea salt and Epsom salt into a large glass bowl. Mix to combine.

Next, weigh out the fractionated coconut oil and drizzle into the salts, mixing as you do so, until the coconut oil has lighted coated all of the salts. (If you’d like to use an essential oil to scent your chamomile calendula bath salts recipe, you may add it at the same time as the fractionated coconut oil. I recommend around 15 drops.)

Now measure out the botanicals using a Tablespoon measure and mix into the bath salts.

Package your bath salts as desired. I used a large glass apothecary jar from Infinity Jars for mine. (These jars are pretty awesome. They have a heavy glass-on-glass lid that only require the most gentle twist to lock a watertight seal and they also block UV light.)

Alternately, you can also package your chamomile calendula bath salts in High Barrier Kraft Paper Stand up Zipper Pouch Bags.

This relaxing chamomile calendula bath salts recipe is made using a simple combination of ingredients - natural salts, botanicals and coconut oil - that helps to relieve stress, condition and detoxify skin, and ease sore muscles and joint pain.

To use, simply add desired amount to running bath water and stir to dissolve. Then relax in your bath for ten to twenty minutes to soak in the benefits.

Want an easy alternative? You can also try this bath salts recipe with lavender flowers and mint leaves in place of the chamomile and calendula!

What’s so great about cosmetic salts?

Dead Sea salt is extracted and solar dried from the saline and mineral rich marshes of the Dead Sea. As a result this salt is extremely rich in nutrients and contains an abundance of numerous key elements. It is widely renowned as the best therapeutic salts available.

Epsom salt is a common ingredient in bath salts as it possesses properties that help to help sooth, relax, and relieve sore muscles. Comprised primarily of magnesium and sulfates, Epsom salt does won’t leave your skin feeling dry. Instead skin soaked in Epsom salts will have a soft and silky texture after a long soak.

Himalayan pink salt is one of the purest salts available and is used both therapeutically and in cosmetic preparations. Derived from ancient sea salt deposits, Himalayan pink salt is believed to be the purest form of salt available. It offers essential minerals and trace elements, balances electrolytes, supports proper nutrient absorption, eliminates toxins, balances the body’s pH, and increases circulation.

Sea salt is essential to good health and is used by the human body to function properly. The sodium in sea salt serves as an electrolyte and assists with regulating the electrical charges within our cells while chloride supports potassium absorption, enhances carbon dioxide transportation, regulates body fluid levels, and is an essential component of digestive acids. Sea salt is great for softening and rejuvenating the skin as well as relaxing muscular aches, pains, sunburns, rashes, and irritated skin.

In addition to helping you wind down after a stressful day, these mineral bath soak recipes also help to ease sore muscles and detox skin! Leave them unscented or add some of your favorite essential oil(s) for a complete aromatherapy experience!
