If you know someone who could use a little relaxation this winter, definitely make them this DIY bath with epsom salt recipe. Your loved ones are sure to appreciate your thoughtfulness. So go ahead and indulge in a little self-care this season – you and your loved ones will thank you for it!

What I Love About This Bath With Epsom Salt 

I love the feeling of hot water soothing my muscles, and the luxurious sensation of epsom salt crystals swirling around my body. It is the perfect way to relax after a long day. I can close my eyes and let out a deep sigh, letting all my troubles wash away.

What’s in This Winter Flower Bath Salt Recipe

Epsom Salt

Epsom salt is rich in magnesium, which is known for its stress-soothing properties. So soak away your worries and relax in a bath with epsom salt!

It is also believed to detoxify the body, improve circulation, and ease muscle aches and pains.

Fractionated Coconut Oil

Adding fractionated coconut oil to a bath salt recipe is a great way to dilute essential oils to enjoy your relaxing bath safely. Plus, coconut oil is a natural emollient, so it will leave your skin feeling soft and silky.

Ylang Ylang Essential Oil

Adding some Ylang Ylang Essential Oil to your bath salt recipe can help turn that bath into a luxurious and relaxing experience. Ylang Ylang Essential Oil has a sweet, floral scent that is energizing and uplifting. When added to bath salts, it can help promote youthful skin. And what’s more, it just smells downright amazing.

Frankincense Essential Oil

Like Ylang Ylang, Frankincense Essential Oil is a great oil for the skin. But while ylang ylang invigorates, frankincense promotes rest and makes you feel more centered. Plus, it has a beautiful, woodsy fragrance that will transport you to a serene forest retreat.

Test Tube Container

Of course, you’ll need a container to store your bath salts in. That’s where our test tube containers come in handy. They’re perfect for holding bath salts— they look really cute, but they also add a touch of scientific sophistication to your bathroom.

Things to Remember When Using This Recipe

Essential oils should never be put directly into a bath. That’s why we dilute them first with a carrier oil in this recipe.

If you are pregnant, consult your doctor prior to use.

This essential oil recipe is safe to use with kids aged 10+.
