Peppermint Bath Salt Recipe,

We all know that an Epsom Salts Bath is great for aching muscles but did you know that it can help relieve a migraine? Yep, add some baking soda and it’s a great skin softener and detox as well.

A few drops of your favorite essential oil and you have your very own spa treatment right at home. I love concocting my own beauty products and this is one of my absolute favorite bath salt recipes.Important Note: some essential oils should not be used during pregnancy!

Basic DIY Bath Salts Recipe

You can whip up these salts in a minute! Seriously, this recipe couldn’t be any easier. The basic ratio is 2 to 1: 2 parts Epsom Salts to 1 part Baking Soda.
For this mixture, I used:
4 Cups Epsom Salts
2 Cups Baking Soda
1/4 tsp Peppermint Essential Oil (more or less to your liking)

Mix Up The Bath Salts

First, place the epsom salts and baking soda in a large bowl.  Using a fork or spoon, mix well. Now, add the peppermint oil and stir to combine. Place the baths salts in the mason jar and seal.  Homemade Bath Salts also make a fantastic DIY Gift Idea!
