Winter Aromatherapy Bath Salt Recipe

by Andrea Butje on January 19, 2015

A warm, floral Aromatherapy bath salt recipe for cold nights!

7f7cb3e44e4a5a50412ad5aa9219453cI love warm baths during cold weather. They are so comforting!

I especially enjoy adding nourishing bath salts to my water.

Here’s one of my favorite Aromatherapy bath salt recipes for winter.  It’s a warm floral blend.

I make it with pink Himalayan salt, which has a particularly high mineral content skin loves, but you can use any natural salt that you prefer.

You can use any grain (fine, small, or large), or combine them for a unique texture. I like small grain.

This recipe makes 4 oz (112 gm) of Aromatherapy bath salt.
It’s enough for two baths.

Winter Flowers in Your Bath

  • 4 oz (112 gm) natural salt
  • 2 tablespoons (30 ml) castile soap
  • 4 drops Neroli essential oil (Citrus aurantium var. amara)
  • 4 drops Lavender essential oil (Lavandula angustifolia)
  • 1 drop Rose absolute (Rosa damascena)

All you have to do is put your salt and castile soap into one 4 oz (112 gm) jar, and add your essential oils drop by drop, stirring as you go. Use a stainless steel spoon. (A glass stir rod could also work, but salts are usually easier to stir thoroughly with a spoon.)

If you don’t have a 4 oz jar, you can make the blend in a glass or Pyrex bowl, then spoon it into smaller jars. You can also just store it in a Tupperware container, if you’ll be the one using it. (I like the jars better for gift-giving, though!)

This is such an emotionally soothing Aromatherapy bath salt recipe, perfect after a long day. bigstock-Woman-relaxing-in-the-hammock--167336597Neroli, Lavender, and Rose are all known for their relaxing effects on the nervous system, and their healing effects on the skin. (We only use one drop of Rose here, because we want to balance its strong aroma with the other oils.)

If you like this blend, you can double or triple the recipe and store it for future baths. I recommend only keeping it around for a few weeks before making a new jar.
