A Relaxing Bath Salt with Essential Oils of Lavender and Roman Chamomile
Some people keep a “to do list.”
Lavender keeps a “relaxation list.”
Here’s what it looks like right now:
- Take a bath
- Go to bed early
- Take a bath
- Go for a walk and appreciate the beauty of the world
- Eat a nourishing meal . . . slowly savor each bite!
- Make a relaxing bath salt with essential oils
- Take a bath
Safe to say that Lavender essential oil loves relaxing baths, right?
And that’s no surprise. Have you ever noticed the way a nice warm bath can seem to dissolve the tension from your muscles, even easing things like spasms and inflammation? Lavender loves these natural effects!
I think it might also make this relaxing bath salt with essential oils to deepen its relaxation!
Lavender Lagoon Relaxing Bath Salt
- 4 oz (112 g) pink Himalayan salt
- 1 tbsp (15 ml) castile soap
- 4 drops Lavender essential oil (Lavandula angustifolia)
- 1 drop Roman Chamomile essential oil (Chamaemelum nobile)
Make this blend in a container that holds at least 4 oz (120 ml).
Combine the salt, castile soap, and essential oil drops, stirring gently with a stainless steel spoon.
This makes enough for one bath—you can just put all of the salt right into the water!
You can also make it last for two baths, if you like. But I don’t recommend storing this for too long, since there are no preservatives in this blend. You’ll want to make yourself a fresh bath salt every few weeks.
Why I Chose these Ingredients for My Bath Salt with Essential Oils
Roman Chamomile and Lavender essential oils are sweetly gentle for skin, soothe the nervous system, offer emotional balance, and help muscles release tension.
Together (along with some warm water!) they can help you feel a sense of perspective where worries aren’t as pressing.
There’s a special reason I included castile soap in this relaxing bath salt with essential oils . . . it’s to help the oils disperse through the bath water. If we don’t include a carrier of some kind for that, the essential oils will simply float on the surface in a few big oily “blobs” (the technical term, haha!)
The “blobs” will be attracted to your skin, which means they’ll come into contact with it undiluted and might feel irritating. The castile soap helps with that.
Enjoy turning your bathroom into a relaxing lavender lagoon!
