Ritual Bath Salt
Post # 1


I recently made an herbal ritual bath salt and am wondering if anyone else does this?

Method of making ritual bath salt.

You begin with some base epsom salt, unscented is best.

Then you add your herbs after drying.

Many fragrant herbs will dry in a dehydrator for 6 to 7 hours at 120 degrees. You can as well increase the temp to 140.

Protective blend ritual bath:

  • Rosemary.
  • Garden sage.
  • Epsom salt.

Has anyone else here tried making these? I have seen them on metaphysical websites that have a bath and body section. These seem relatively simple to make. My current batch smells very nice and I can not wait to try it.

I have made many herbal bath salt blends over the years. I stopped however using dried herbs mixed with my salts because of the herbs causing an issue with the plumbing. I would try to strain the dried herbs out of the bath water but it was time consuming. At one point I used large tea bags or jelly strainer bags to contain the dried herb pieces but they needed replaced and I didn't like the resulting bath water. After years of this I decided to try essential oils instead and found that it was the best way for me to move forward. It is not uncommon for me to stir in my cauldron tub some Epsom salts and baking soda with Lavender, Frankincense, and Helichrysum. This blend helps to detoxify my entire body, it restores my tired legs and soothes my aching joints. I find the steam treatment helps to heal and keep my lungs stronger particularly in the winter months. Sometimes I add Rosemary to my bath and I have a love of Patchouli therefore it's often added. Chamomile, Myrrh, Rose, Sage, Fennel, Magnolia, Jasmine, and Neroliare other favorite bath oils. I typically mix while the water is running but I have also made others a blend of Epsom salts with oils to use at a later time. Usually it's three cups of Epsom salts and several drops of each oil. With a high quality essential oil one only needs 10 drops maximum of any one oil. I often stick to multiples of three, five, or seven. The more expensive the oil the less I tend to use so with Lavender or Rosemary it could be seven or nine drops each but Frankincense and Helichrysum may only be 3 or 5 drops.

Many Blessing,
