Time for a little post-winter solstice TLC!

Soak your feet in the lavishness of Himalayan salt and some essential oils - just like getting enveloped in a warm hug. It's time to wave goodbye to those winter worries because you deserve all the relaxation greatness that comes with spending quality self-care time at home. Get ready; it feels like it's finally footbath o'clock!

I especially enjoy adding nourishing bath salts to my water. A warm, floral Aromatherapy bath salt recipe is lovely for a cold night. Unwind and relax this winter evening with a therapeutic aromatherapy soak! Craft your own luxurious bath salt mix – Himalayan pink salt is the perfect base to nourish and soothe.

Here is one of my favorite Aromatherapy bath salt recipes for winter.

I make it with pink Himalayan salt, which has an exceptionally high mineral content skin loves, but you can use any natural salt you prefer. You can use any grain (fine, small, or large) or combine them for a unique texture. Small grain is my favorite in a foot bath.

This is such an emotionally soothing Aromatherapy bath salt recipe, perfect after a long day.

The recipe makes 4 oz (112 gm) of Aromatherapy bath salt. It's enough for two baths.

Winter Flowers in Your Bath

The warm, floral aroma makes this bath salt recipe perfect for cold nights!


  • 4 oz (112 gm) Natural Salt

  • 2 Tbsp (30 ml) Jojoba Wax (Simmondsia chinensis)

  • 4 drops Lavender Oil (Lavandula angustifolia)

  • 1 drop Rose Absolute (Rosa damascena)


  • One 4 oz (112 gm) jar

  • Glass stirring rod (or a stainless steel spoon)


  • Add the salt to the jar.

  • Add the essential oils to the jojoba.

  • Then gently stir into the salt to distribute evenly.
    (This is enough for two baths.)

If you don't have a 4 oz jar, you can blend it in a glass or Pyrex bowl, then spoon it into smaller jars. You can also store it in a Tupperware container if you're the one using it. (I like the jars better for gift-giving, though!)

Note: Carrier oils can make the bathtub slippery. Another option is to use Castile soap to disperse the essential oils in the bath water.

If you prefer to use Castile soap, simply add the essential oils to 1 tablespoon of Castile soap. Castile soap can sometimes cause the salt to harden, so we recommend adding the salt directly to the bath water.

Neroli, lavender, and rose are all known for their relaxing effects on the nervous system and their healing effects on the skin.

(We only use one drop of Rose. This is perfect to balance its strong aroma with the other oils.)

If you like this blend, you can double or triple the recipe and store it for future baths. I recommend only keeping it around for a few weeks before making a new jar.
