Calming Bath Salts

Bath salts seem like an old-fashioned idea, but they are so unbelievably therapeutic. They are high in magnesium, a very important mineral that many of us are deficient in. Bathing in salts is one of the most accessible ways to get magnesium into our bodies, and they are especially good to use after exercise or when our muscles really need some TLC. They will also help to contribute to a good night’s sleep. You can add a variety of dried herbs from your garden – I use chamomile flowers, lavender flowers, rosemary, but there are so many more herbs you could add:


200g glass jar

200g bath salts (Epsom or magnesium)

essential oils:     lavender – 15 drops

geranium – 8 drops

petitgrain – 7 drops

optional: botanicals – dried lavender flowers, calendula petals, chamomile flowers or rose petals


  • Weigh the bath salts into your jar
  • Drip on your essential oil.
  • If using, sprinkle in a few rose petals, dried lavender or botanicals of choice.
  • Gently stir. Wait for 24 hours before using the product.

 To Use: use a large handful in your bath; relax in the bath for at least 15 minutes to absorb the benefits of the salts.


NB: if you have high blood pressure, please use a small amount.
