Fizzy Bath Salts Recipe Ingredients

Salts

Epsom salt, sea salt and red alaea salt lend this bath soak recipe its detoxifying and purifying properties.

Oils

Hemp seed oil adds an extra dose of moisture as rosemary essential oil adds such a delightfully invigorating, yet calming scent.

Baking Soda

Baking soda adds silky detoxifying benefits whilst making the water a bit more on the alkaline side.

Citric Acid

Citric acid is the secret ingredient that adds all the fizzy power of a bath bomb.

Juniper Berries

Juniper trees have a special place in my heart and also dot the landscape I call home! Their lovely berries are not only full of vitamin C and antibacterial compounds, but also make a lovely aid for the lymphatic system, making them a great choice for a healing bath soak.

Rose Buds

Ah, rose — heart-healing, soothing and fragrant to boot.

Aloe Vera Powder

Aloe vera is filled with skin healing powers, anti-aging benefits and wonderful moisturizing properties.

Grapefruit Peel

I’m quite fond of the scent of grapefruit peel alongside rosemary and rose. Bonus: it has gentle exfoliating properties.

Top Tips for the DIY Fizzy Bath Salts Experience

Crush It

It’s completely optional, but I like to lightly crush the juniper berries using a mortar and pestle before adding to the bath salts mixture to help release its powerful plant compounds. This can also be done with the grapefruit peel, if desired.

Clean It

If you’re worried about what clean-up might look like after using such plant-powered ingredients, let me tell you, it is easier than you can imagine! The majority of the ingredients dissolve into silky, fizzy bliss while the rose buds, juniper berries and grapefruit peel gently float and rehydrate as you soak. These fragrant bits of plant material can be easily scooped up by your hands or a mesh colander before exiting the bath. I then like to add them to my compost pile or save for the next bath!

Modify It

This is a very versatile and flexible bath soak recipe. If you are allergic to or not fond of any of the ingredients, you can easily omit or substitute to your tastes. Just keep in mind, the citric acid is what makes these bath salts –fizzy– !
