DIY Vaporizing Bath Salts
There are actually a lot of things that I like to do to unwind. Read a book, cook a nice meal, eat that nice meal…you get the idea. But sometimes, I just want to really, really relax. Like, not have to lift a finger at all, relax. Know what I mean?
This is where I carve out time to take care of me. And one way that I love to do that is to make my own beauty and bath products that I can soak in with ease. Plus, this recipe that I’m sharing with you today is a great one to use when you’ve got a stuffy nose or sinus pressure!
I find that I relax even more when I am soaking in the tub with a product that I actually made. Weird, right? Maybe it’s the alpha in me coming out, but the feeling of being in control relaxes me!

Homemade Vaporizing Bath Salts
Ingredients needed to make these homemade bath salts:
Start by adding Epsom salts and baking soda into a medium mixing bowl. Once added, you’re going to whisk to combine.
Next, grab all your essential oils and add in those 55 total drops! (Math!!) Once added, stir well.
Then, you’re going to take and mix in the soap colorants. You’ll want to stir and stir until your desired shade of green is visible.
Once done, take your mixture and put into an airtight glass container and store in a cool and dry place.
See, that’s not hard at all, right?
But now…you need to learn how to use these bath salts properly!
How to use your homemade bath salts
Once you’ve made up the recipe, it’s time to use those bath salts! Run your bath water and add 1/4 cup of the vaporizing bath salts. (You’re going to want your bath water to be warm!)
Once you’ve added them, take your hand and use it to circulate the bath salts around in the water. This also helps to activate the essential oils.
Then, once done, it’s time to sit back and enjoy the vaporizing effects of the peppermint, eucalyptus, and rosemary essential oils!
Now that you have the “how to” and the “know how”, it’s time for you to take charge and make your own bath salts! With allergy season among us, this bath salt recipe may be just what you need to get rid of some of those sniffles!
