This chamomile bath salts recipe is perfect for those times you just need to relax, unwind, and de-stress. Chamomile relaxes the mind, while Epsom salts release tension in your muscles and joints. It’s the perfect anti-stress combo!
Why I use Chamomile Bath Salts:
Chamomile is generally thought of as a relaxing tea when you drink it, so I chose chamomile for both the herb and the essential oil for this bath salts recipe. For an even more relaxing experience, you could sip chamomile tea while soaking in the tub. (Psst: you could also make these Lavender and Chamomile Bath Bombs)…
By the way, these are my favorite essential oils — I’ve been used them for almost 3 years now and they are AMAZING. ?
Epsom salt is high in magnesium, which is absorbed through your skin. Soaking in Epsom salt can help reduce inflammation in your body and ease pain. Sulfates in the salt help draw toxins from your body and detox your skin.
Chamomile is a herb that is often used in teas, but it also has benefits for your skin. It’s soothing for your skin and has anti-inflammatory properties to help your skin. Naturally high in antioxidants, this herb makes a wonderful addition to your bath.
Just taking an hour to relax in a warm bath can do wonders for your mood. There’s just something about the warm water and the quietness that helps me reset my mind and keep going on with my life.
CHAMOMILE BATH SALTS RECIPE
Use a mortar and pestle to grind the chamomile. It doesn’t need to be completely powdered, but it does need to be fairly fine so you don’t clog your drain.
If you don’t have dried chamomile, you can use organic chamomile tea. Simply cut open the tea bag and use the tea. Depending on your tea brand, you may not need to grind the chamomile. One tea bag is approximately 1 tablespoon, so you’ll need two tea bags for this recipe.
Combine the Epsom salts, dried chamomile, and chamomile essential oil in a glass bowl. Stir well.
Spoon the bath salts into a container with a lid. Store in a dry place until ready to use.
When you want to use your chamomile bath salts, scoop about ¼ of a cup into a warm bath and enjoy!
