Essential Oils for the bath; Lavender essential oil and Himalayan Salt

Bath Salts

Who doesn’t enjoy a nice long bath after a hard day’s work? I most certainly do. Want to know my favorite bath recipe?

Himalayan bath salts and Lavender essential oil.  There is nothing more relaxing than this therapeutic combo! Not for me anyway…

First, start running some bath water… I then grab my little glass dessert dish, add a good handful of salts and place 6 drops of lavender essential oil on top of the salts in the dish. When the tub has some water in it, run the dish under the water and let it dissolve into the bath. I stick my feet in and swirl the water until all the salts are dissolved… Otherwise it feels like you’re sitting on the beach lol!!!

There’s nothing like this recipe to chill out after a stressful day!  The lavender just wraps around you and the scent is heavenly.

Now, let’s chat about the HUGE benefits of using Himalayan salts/

We all have used Epsom salts… but instead of Epsom salts, give Himalayan salts a try. Himalayan salts are loaded with 84 different minerals including potassium, magnesium, bromide and calcium which are absorbed through the skin to rejuvenate and revitalize your body.

Bathing in Himalayan salts can reduce inflammation in the joints and muscles and helps relax the body. Did you know that “way back when” they used to treat patients that had chronic infections and ailments with salt baths? Cool fact: Hippocrates, father of modern medicine, recommended “thalasso-therapeia” a fancy way of saying bathing in warm seawater. But on the serious side, these two Greek words meaning “treat with the sea”. In Greek, “thalassa” means sea and “therapeia” means treatment.

Natural Himalayan salt crystals have been shown to relieve stress, focus the mind, boost the immune system, relieve water retention, strengthen your bones and nails and they also help heal dry, damaged skin cells. Now mix those wonders with the stress relieving and relaxing benefits of Lavender essential oil and you have the perfect bath solution!

  1. I have wanted to put a bag of bath salts I received from an about use, but never really paid attention to it, never knew there was so much value behind it. Thanks for informing me, I will start using them next time I shower. However, I do not think I have Himalayan bath salts. I think mine are peppermint bath salts, is this ok?

    It’s been almost a year since I found the time to have a really long bath, since the birth of my daughter, 11 months ago, I didn’t find the time to do much for myself.

    I LOVE Lavender and I think I will try this Himalayan Salt… thanks for sharing!!
