Pain Relief Bath Salts Recipe

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.

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.

Don’t let August bite.

The school season and the lovely fall colors are right around the corner, but right now we’re stuck in the hottest part of the summer season. Temps here in Southwestern Virginia have already been in the high 90’s and low 100’s through most of July, so I’m leery of what kind of heat August will bring. I’m also not looking forward to the mosquitoes that seem to thrive in this kind of hot, humid weather. Seeing as how my son is involved in soccer and spends much of his time outdoors I’ve been seeking a natural alternative to chemical bug repellents like Off.
While in the past I’ve used the lemongrass essential oil that I always have on hand for my soapmaking, I recently came across a better alternative. Good 4 You’s End of Time Bug Spray is an all natural catnip based bug repellent that is ten times stronger than DEET. Combined with essentials oils of lemongrass, lavender, cedarwood, red thyme, eucalyptus,  and rosemary, this dry non-greasy spray provides the protection you need for biting insects all summer long. It’s reasonably priced at $5.95 for a 2oz. bottle from Good 4 You. Also be sure to check out Good 4 You’s other quality items including salves, herbal baths and loose leaf teas.
