These are the ingredients you will need to make this bath salts recipe for sore muscle relief:
- 8 oz. Dead Sea salt
- 4 oz. Epsom salt
- 1 Tablespoon chamomile flowers
- 1 Tablespoon calendula petals
- .4 oz. fractionated coconut oil
How to Make Herbal Bath Salts for Sore Muscles
Here is how to make herbal bath salt with natural botanicals and Epsom salt for sore muscles:
- 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 Chamomile Calendula Bath Salts
You can package your herbal sore muscle bath salts as desired. I used a large glass apothecary jar from Infinity Jars for my natural bath salts. (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.
How to Use Bath Salts for Self Care and Sore Muscle Relief
To use your bath salts, 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.
