Relaxation - Spa Quality Bath Salts

Total Time
Prep 10 mins

This is my personal recipe for Spa Quality Bath Salts. Good for anything from a relaxing bath after a long day, to soothing sore muscles.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup dead sea salt
  • 1 12 tablespoons dendritic salt
  • 15 drops english lavender oil
  • 10 drops chamomile essential oils


  1. Add Lavender and Chamomile Essential Oils to Dendritic salt and mix well. Dendritic salt holds scent better and longer and also helps to prevent clumping.
  2. Once mixed well, combine with Dead Sea Salt and mix well once more.
  3. Begin filling tub with WARM - NOT HOT water. Add up to 1 cup of Bath Salts Mixture and let dissolve while filling tub.
  4. For maximum benefit, soak at least 15 minutes to allow the body to absorb the therapeutic minerals and oils. I have myofascial pain and fibromyalgia and this helps when my back and legs are giving me fits. It works best if you splurge a little and purchase good qualty ingredients, but also works with the cheaper supplies.

I had a really tiring day today and soaked my feet at the end of the day in a tub of hot water to which I added 2 tsps. regular table salt, 2 tbsps. Palmolive body wash(the red colour bottle) and a few scented oils. Was the most relaxing thing on earth...Can you tell me what dendritic salt is? Thanks!
