READY IN: 3mins
YIELD: 4 cups


  • 1
  • 1
    cup epsom salts
  • 1 -2
    tablespoon glycerin, per bath
  • essential oil, as desired


  • Combine the sea salts, baking soda, and Epsom salts in a bowl.
  • Stir to blend.
  • Pour 1/4 cup or so into the bath while the tub is filling.
  • Add 1 to 2 tablespoons glycerin to keep your skin from drying out (more for dry skin, less for oily skin) and essential oils of choice.
  • Be sure to keep the glycerin and essential oils separate, adding them only to each bath and not the dry mixture.
  • Store any unused mixture in a glass jar with a screw top (I use mayonnaise jars).
