Christmas is just around the corner, so I wanted to share this simple DIY Eucalyptus Bath Salt recipe that makes a great gift to give or to make for yourself.

Recently, I have learned so much about how important it is for our health to soak in a salt bath… and I know in this fast paced world sometimes a bath is just needed to relax.

For best results you want to soak for at least 20 minutes and best results would be for 40 minutes.


Epsom Salts

We chose Epsom salts because of the extra benefits of magnesium. When I was pregnant, I developed a deficiency in magnesium and my midwife told me to start taking epsom salt baths 3x a week to help. They worked so well – I was amazed! I was having trouble sleeping and restless leg syndrome (both common in pregnancy) and the baths helped so much.


Baking Soda

Baking soda is a very common ingredient in baking recipes… but many people don’t know it is also great for your skin too! It is a great home remedy for many common skin problems. Adding baking soda to your bath can help neutralize skin acidity and promote elimination of toxins. Soaking in baking soda can help refresh, renew and soften your dry skin which is needed during the dryer, winter months.



Minty, refreshing, and energizing, Eucalyptus Oil will fill the room with the clearing comfort you need. Eucalyptus oil benefits are due to its ability to stimulate immunity, provide antioxidant protection and improve respiratory circulation (DrAxe.com)
