Relaxing Bath Salt & Essential Oils Recipe

Use to unwind after a busy day or busy week…..

  • 2 oz (56 g) pink Himalayan salt
  • 1 tablespoon (15 ml) jojoba
  • 2 drops Neroli/Petitgrain
  • 2 drops Cedarwood
  • 1 drop Tea Tree (Melaleuca)

Make this blend in a 2 oz (60 ml) jar.

Put the salt and jojoba into the jar, add the essential oils, and stir with a glass stirring rod or the handle of a stainless steel spoon.

Use the whole jar to help yourself relax in the tub after a long day. The essential oils and warm water help to work out any tension held in your muscles.

Be sure to towel off the tub when you’re done with your bath. This blend leaves the tub slippery, so be careful.

    Note:
     Don’t overcook as it will lead to dry play dough.

  4. Once cool, add five drops of your favorite essential oil and knead until thoroughly combined.
