How to Make Lavender Bath Salts Recipe

Most people love taking relaxing salt baths when they first get married. Now, most days, bath time just involves washing many tiny fingers, toes, and heads of hair. No complaints, but definitely not as relaxing!

Benefits of Salt Baths

Salt baths are great for much more than just relaxation. Of course, a soothing salt bath is great for that too, but the benefits go well beyond just being a soothing end to a stressful day.

Benefits of salt baths include:

  • Stress relief
  • Reducing muscle aches
  • Improving circulation
  • Headache relief
  • Speeding up wound healing (don’t use on direct open wounds)
  • During illness, especially respiratory illness
  • To help mineral absorption and improve sleep in children
  • For acne, eczema or other skin problems
  • Improving skin hydration

Skin Boosting Ingredients

Bath salts can be as simple as just using a salt or magnesium salt on its own. Options include:

From there, any array of optional ingredients can be added for additional benefits:

  • Essential Oils– Any essential oil that is safe for skin use can be added to a salt bath. Since oil and water don’t mix, add the oil to the salt and then add to the water.
  • Oils– Adding oils to the salts helps moisturize the skin and stops the drying effect of the salt. Some people find salt on its own too drying. Mixing in a little oil (like coconut, almond, or argan) can help.
