Here is a great idea for creating your own mixture of aromatherapy sparkling bath salts. You don’t need to spend lots of money on expensive brands when you can easily make your own and customize them with your own favorite scents.

Ingredients Needed:

1. ¼ cup of Baking Soda: You can easily find baking soda in any grocery store.

2. Two Tablespoons of Citric Acid: This is a natural substance derived from lemons and limes and is what gives them their sour taste. Citric acid is a common ingredient in many food items and supplements. You can usually find citric acid at baking stores or pharmacies. This ingredient is optional if you are having difficulty finding it.

3. ¾ cup of either fine grain sea salt, Himalayan pink salt, or Epsom salt: You can use a courser salt if you wish but fine salts will dissolve quicker so it’s just a matter of preference.

4. 20-25 drops of Essential oils: Here you can use your favorite essential oils customized just for you. My personal favorite is an equal mixture of geranium, orange and ylang ylang….it’s very sensual and feminine. Geranium and lemon mixed together is also a very happy uplifting scent and another favorite of mine. Pine baths are also great for sore aching muscles. Lavender is very calming and relaxing for those really stressful days. Rosemary, eucalyptus or peppermint are great for when you need some invigoration.

Young Living has some great blends that I love. One that I particularly love is called Joy and has a very high frequency…188MHz. Another favorite that men seem to like very well is called Sacred Mountain…it’s very grounding and solid and smells wonderful. Feel free to create your own blends of oils that you love. Just make sure you are using 100% therapeutic grade essential oils so you can get the therapeutic benefits.

Instructions:

Using a glass bowl, combine the salt, baking soda and the citric acid together and mix thoroughly. Then add your essential oils to this mixture and mix well. For best results you can let the oils mix with the salts for a week or two but you can also use it immediately if you can’t wait to try them out. Use approximately ¼ cup of the salts per bath.
