These homemade bath salts relieve muscle and joint pain by helping reduce inflammation and releasing tension, as well as sedating and balancing the nervous system.

Lavender Bubble Bath Salts Recipe


3 cups Dead Sea Salt (do NOT use Epsom salt - it cakes up)

1/4 cup liquid Castille Soap

1 tablespoon Vegetable Glycerin

1 teaspoon white Sugar

12 drops Lavender essential oil

2 drops Geranium essential oil

1 drop Clary Sage essential oil

1 drop Chamomile essential oil

Optional: 10 drops blue, 2 drops red food coloring


  1. Measure the salt into a large ceramic, glass or metal bowl (not plastic - it will absorb the essential oils and be ruined.)

  2. In a separate bowl, stir together the remaining ingredients until thoroughly mixed. I recommend using a metal spoon - a wooden or plastic spoon also absorbs essential oils.

  3. Pour the soap mixture into the salt and stir until the salt is evenly coated.

  4. Spoon the lavender bubble bath salts into a dark glass or PET plastic jar and let cure for 24 hours before using.

  5. Use about one cup of salts per bath. This bath salt recipe makes enough for three baths. Click here for tips on making your bath magical.
