When you’re ready to use the bath salts, add about 1/2 cup of them to a hot both. Once the water is cooled down, soak in it for 15 minutes or so to fully relax.
How much bath salt do you put in a bath?
For the best experience, you’re going to want to add in about 1/2 cup to your bath. This will give you that amazing smell and relaxing feel.
Do you have to rinse off after an Epsom Salt Bath?
It’s a good idea to rinse off! That way it gets rid of anything that might not have fully dissolved in the water and is sticking to your body.
What other variations of bath salts can you make?
While we used a relaxation blend of essential oils, you can make these bath salts with any variety of essential oil. We also love lavender, chamomile or citrus blends for the bath.
