Jump To top

Much like nap time, I hated taking baths as a kid. Whether I was galavanting at the park for hours, or swapping snot napkins at a classmates birthday party, rough and dirty was how I played it. 

I’m pleased to report I’ve matured since then, and what once seemed like a punishment of suds and scrubbing, is now my tranquil happy place. Over the years, I’ve upped my bath game with DIY bath salts for a luxurious retreat that I visit almost on the daily.

Learning how to make bath salts is easier than you might think.  Homemade bath salts are a great way to save some extra cash using all-natural ingredients that you probably already have at home!

What Are Bath Salts?

Bath salts are commonly made from magnesium sulfate, or epsom salt, and dissolve with warm water to help reduce stress and ease achy joints and muscles.

The minerals in DIY bath salts can help remove harmful toxins from your body to relieve anxiety and stress, calming nerves for a relaxing oasis. Homemade bath salts can also reduce inflammation, to help with muscle aches and pains.

How To Use Bath Salts

DIY bath salts are best used, you guessed it, in the bath! Homemade bath salts are a great addition to your at-home retreat, so you can skip the overpriced spas and enjoy relaxing moments in the comfort of your own home.

I love using my DIY bath salts while enjoying a cup of warm, cozy ZzzTox tea. Not only am I getting the benefits from the homemade bath salts, but I’m also helping to reduce stress-induced weight gain with the powerful, all-natural, superfood ingredients found in ZzzTox. It’s like the bath and tea are giving me a giant warm hug, and boy does it feel good!
