We all love to sleep well. This bath salts recipe can really help! It’s one of my favorite essential oil recipes for sleep.
I have a lot of essential oil recipes for sleep, and I especially love this one in pink bath salts. But you can use any natural salt you like.
1 drop Neroli essential oil (Citrus aurantium var. amara)
3 drops Lavender essential oil (Lavandula angustifolia)
1 drop Orange essential oil (Citrus sinensis)
2 oz (56 gm) pink Himalayan salt
This recipe is just the right amount for one bath, but you can easily make a larger amount and store it in a glass jar for future baths. To be extra skin safe, add the essential oils to a carrier oil first and then mix into the salts. You could add your essential oils to a teaspoon or so of jojoba or coconut oil and then mix that into the salt.
If you don’t like to take baths or don’t have a bath tub, this same blend can be used in 2 oz (56 gm) of lotion and applied to your back and shoulders right before bed. Another idea is to use the same recipe (minus the salt) in a spray bottle of water for your linens.
