Soaking in a warm Epsom salt bath after a long day can work wonders on your body. There are many health benefits of Epsom salt, but when combined with essential oils your relaxing bath can become even more delightful. Think back to the last time you pampered yourself with a stress-relieving bath and toxic cleanse. For normal, every day busy people, it’s hard to remember!
The process of adding essential oils to your Epsom salt bath sounds easy, but there are some safety measures to take before adding them straight to water. Essential oil, no matter what the scent, needs to be combined with salt or carrier oil. This carrier oil, a common choice is coconut oil, will protect your skin from sensitivities such as burns. Each oil contains properties that may not be suitable for baths and your skin. For example, peppermint oil can often irritate skins and warming oils like black pepper, ginger and clove can become too hot if mixed in a warm bath.
There are several ways to use essential oils with Epsom salt. Below are a few recipes but you can be as creative as you want, as long as you research and the combinations before using them. Ylang-Ylang, Juniper, Bergamot and Geranium are all essential oils that have a variety of uses and are shown to help with an array of common problems.
- For an even more relaxing and rejuvenating bath, 20 drops of lavender essential oil can be added to Epsom salt.
- To help ease sore muscles, add 20 drops of eucalyptus oil.
- To lighten your mood and relieve stress, combine 30 drops of tangerine, grapefruit and sweet orange essential oil.
- For an energizing and invigorating bath, combine 5 drops of rosemary and 10 drops of spearmint essential oils.
After you bathe in Epsom salt and essential oil, always rinse the mixtures off with a cool shower and drink plenty of water. The health benefits of Epsom salt combined with essential oils is a game-changer. Whether you suffer from physical or emotional pain, your brain will record it as the same pain.
