Making your own therapeutic bath salts is easy and cost effective! Did you know that when you blend Epsom Salt and Baking Soda with YLTG essential oils, you get a wonderful way to detox the body and help rid your body of harmful chemicals?
Epsom salt (magnesium sulfate) is rich in magnesium, an electrolyte mineral we all need! Magnesium not only improves sleep – when absorbed through the skin it works to relieve muscle tension, inflammation in joints, and pain. It alleviates tension headaches and abdominal cramps, bronchial asthma, and is healing to cuts and abrasions, making Better Bath Salts an excellent choice as a foot soak.
Baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) or NaHCO3, (one salt ion + hydrogen, carbon, and oxygen), exfoliates the skin, and is alkalinizing making it beneficial for rashes and yeast infections. Sodium bicarbonate also helps relieve bug bites, and burns.
Young Living therapeutic grade Lavender essential oil is antiseptic, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, anti-itch, analgesic (relieves pain & inflammation in joints & muscles), soothing, anti-stress, anti-anxiety, and supports a healthy immune system. Combine Lavender essential oil with Lemon and / or Peppermint oil to relieve allergies.
BETTER BATH SALTS ‘recipe’:
Simply use a 1:1 ratio of Epsom salt (magnesium sulfate) to Baking soda (sodium bicarbonate), plus pure Young Living therapeutic grade essential oils of your choice.
For a small 6 oz glass jar that’s 1/4 cup epsom salt + 1/4 cup baking soda. Add a few drops of Young Living therapeutic grade essential oils and stir together well.
YLTG Lavender oil, Ylang Ylang essential oil, or ‘Joy’ essential oil blend, are all lovely choices for bath salts, generally used in an evening bath.
If desired, add a Tbsp of dried flowers of choice (lavender flowers, chamomile flowers, hibiscus, or comfrey).
