Fall is a great time for self-care: cozy sweaters, yummy lattes, pretty leaves. Fall just seems to make self-love and care a little easier. This recipe that I’m sharing today is a way to give yourself some self-care that is perfect for fall. It has the amazing autumn aroma of chai plus the benefits of bath salts.
What I Love About This Recipe
This recipe only takes a few minutes to make. All you need to do is mix a few ingredients together and you’re ready for fall-themed self-care.
What’s in the Chai Tea Bath Salts Recipe?
An aromatherapy bath is a bath to which you add salt and essential oils. You can get a variety of benefits based on the type of salt and essential oils that you use.
My favorite salt to use in the bath is Epsom salts. It’s inexpensive and found in most supermarkets. Epsom salts baths help your body eliminate waste, soothe muscular aches and pains, and stimulate blood circulation to support your body’s immune response.
Essential Oils are another way to add benefits to your bath. In this recipe, we’ll be using common household spices along with Cinnamon Essential Oils to add stimulating and warming properties to our bath. Plus, these spices are going to make our bath smell like Chai Tea.
We’ll also be adding Almond Oil to this recipe. Almond Oil is a carrier oil that helps protect our skin from the strong properties of Cinnamon Essential Oil. Almond Oil will also help nourish and promote skin health.
The final touch of this recipe is a teabag. We’ll store the recipe in a tea bag and use it to steep the benefits of our Chai Tea Bath into the tub.
Things to Remember When Using This Recipe
Cinnamon Essential Oil can be irritating to the skin. We’ve diluted it with almond oil to prevent irritation but start by putting your feet in the bath first to make sure no negative reactions occur.
If your skin does become irritated, apply almond oil or another carrier oil to the area.
You can use this recipe with individuals aged 10+.
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.
