Create Your Own Detox Salt Bath Soak

When I go to the spa, I really look forward to the detox bath soak. I am really excited about this next recipe because it is going to allow me to have that detox bath soak at home!  Plus it costs only a fraction of what I spend in the spa. You can also experiment with what essential oils to use. For this detox salt bath soak recipe, I am using my staples: Howood and Orange Essential Oils.

I love how I can bring the spa feeling to my life without having to leave the house! I can light a few candles, grab my favorite book, and enjoy a relaxing bath with these bath salts.

Himalayan Pink Salt

Himalayan Pink salt has so many minerals that are good for you! They also help detox your body which is exactly what this recipe is meant to do.

Almond Oil

Almond Oil is a carrier oil that will dilute the essential oils that may be harsh on the skin.

Baking Soda

Baking Soda relieves itchy or irritated skin that may be bothering you!

Howood Essential Oil

Howood Essential Oil has a floral and woody aroma that pairs well with the Orange Essential Oil in this recipe!

Orange Essential Oil

Orange Essential Oil is uplifting and always smells so fresh–just like a lovely summer day!

This recipe is safe to use with children 2+.

Keep this recipe away from your cat as the Orange Essential Oil may cause them irritation.

Never ingest any essential oil, even if it’s generally regarded as safe. For more information on why we don’t ingest essential oils, check out this blog post
