 DIY Lavender Bath Salts -

After a long week the number one thing I love to do is soak in a bath. But not just a plain bath. I soak with my DIY bath salts, made with Epsom salt and essential oils.

Epsom salt is amazing stuff. It helps to detox impurities out of the body, and it’s great for relieving sore muscles. Indulge in an Epsom salt baths a few times a week to regularly rid the body of toxins.

Therapeutic-grade lavender essential oil is fantastic for so many things. It can promote relaxation and balance, yet it can boost energy too. It can also be used to soothe cuts, bruises and skin irritations. You could substitute any essential oil – such as orange and lemon to uplift or peppermint to energize. But after a long week, I always reach for lavender.

While this recipe could just include Epsom salt and essential oils, I love to add carrier oil such as sweet almond or jojoba oil for an extra dose of moisture.

  1. I’m new to learning about EO. Can this be used fke both baby/toddler & pregnant ladies?

    • Yes! Young Living is therapeutic grade – meaning it can be used for medicinal purposes. I use on my toddler and my kids. Depending on the oils, you can use straight or dilute with a carrier oil such as jojoba or sweet almond oil. YL is great for pregnant women too. Join my Facebook group to learn more:
