Silk n' Spice Recipe for Bath Salts


2 cups Epsom Salt

1 cup Dead Sea Salt

1/2 cup Baking Soda

10 drops Sandalwood essential oil

3 drops Frankincense essential oil

2 drops Patchouli essential oil

1 drop Ceradwood or Vetiver essential oil

Optional: 6 drops red, 4 drops yellow food coloring


  1. Mix salts and baking soda together in a bowl using a metal spoon (a wooden spoon will absorb the essential oils and be ruined.)

  2. Drop in the essential oils and food coloring, placing each drop in its own little spot on top of the salt. Stir until thoroughly mixed

  3. Store mixture in a dark glass or PET plastic jar. Let cure at least 24 hours before using.

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

Optional: Use coarse Sea Salt for a more defined texture. If you have a bulk food store nearby, check it for different kinds of salt.


Do not use Epsom salt if you have high blood pressure. Replace it with sea salt.

Where to Buy Bath Salts Recipe Ingredients

You should be able to find Epsom salt at your local pharmacy. Baking soda is available in the baking area of your supermarket.

My favorite supplier for other aromatherapy recipe ingredients is Mountain Rose Herbs. They have excellent products at good prices, and their staff is helpful and friendly. Here's some quick links to the ingredients you'll need for this recipe for bath salts...
