Dr. Joy’s Joyful Pleasures: Pamper Time With a DIY Project 

 July 5, 2020

By  Dr. Joy Lasseter

What is more relaxing than a tub soak? They are especially wonderful if you have sore muscles from over exertion. It is also a great stress reliever! If I have had a difficult day I take my tub soak before bedtime. Then I sleep like a baby!


Did you know you can make your own unique bath salts? I’m giving you the standard recipe. Or make your own special version with the options you choose. Be creative. Keep track of the fragrances you use. When you find one you really like write it out as a recipe. You might want to make extra batches of your favorite combination to give as a gift. This recipe makes about 5 cups. You will need 5 jelly jars of 1 cup size.

Preparation: Wash and dry some small jars with screw on lids. Mason jelly jars work well for this project.

Basic Recipe:

3 cups plain (unscented, uncolored) Epsom salts

1 cup coarse sea salt

1/2 cup baking soda


Add 20 drops total of your favorite essential oils for fragrance.

(lavender, bergamot, rose, eucalyptus, orange, grapefruit, lemon, chamomile, juniper, pine, fir, mint)

Mix ingredients in a large bowl. 

Fill small jelly jars with the mixture (about 1 cup per container).

This recipe can be stored up to 6 months in air tight container.

Relax, Enjoy and share with your friends!
