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.

I started using essential oils from doTerra after comparing them to the other brands in my stash.

I found myself using fewer drops per recipe and actually getting better results. Plus, I've never had a bad reaction, which sometimes happens with other brands.

doTerra's oils cost more than other brands, and that's as it should be. It's like buying a BMW vs. a Kia - the more expensive car is the better quality vehicle.

If you can afford them, I recommend giving doTerra's oils a try and comparing them for yourself.

You can buy doTerra's oils at retail prices by clicking the Shop button at the top. Or click Join & Save to become a wholesale customer and get a store-wide 25% discount. Message me if you want more details on the wholesale thing - why spend more than you have to, right?

I recommend Mountain Rose Herbs if you're on a tight budget. 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...

Or... If you love having tons of options to choose from, browse through Amazon and see what looks good to you. Just remember that inexpensive oils are likely to be lower in quality - how else do they get the cost so low?
