Stress Relieving Bath Salts

Stress Relieving Bath Salts

We all have stress in our lives! It is an unfortunate part of life, but it is something that we all deal with. One thing that helps me when I am starting to feel overwhelmed is taking a nice, hot bath. I have been adding a few different essential oils to my bath. I have found that when I mix lavender and grapefruit essential oil together, it creates just the right stress relieving bath for me. I decided to make stress relieving bath salts that are infused with lavender and grapefruit so that I can have them on hand when I am in need of a stress relieving bath!

Next, add your essential oils and your food coloring to the mixture and stir together. This part is my favorite! I love smelling these scents together! Just add as much of the food coloring as you want. I wanted mine to be more of a tint of purple, but you could add more to make it more purple or any other color you want!

Pour your bath salts into a container. It is best to store in an air tight jar so that the scents all stay in tact.

These bath salts are probably my favorite bath salts that I have ever made. The lavender is so soothing, while the grapefruit helps cheer up my mood. The scents blend together really nicely as well!

Does this yield enough for one bath or more?

It is definitely more than one. It depends on how big of bath bomb molds you are using, but it is usually around 3-4 per batch.

May i put lemon essential oil instead of grapefruit.

Yes. It will just smell differently. Lemon essential oil and grapefruit have very similar benefits though!
