Homemade Scented Epsom Salts

Earlier this year, I wrote about my favorite detox bath ingredients. On the list, I included Dr. Teal's Scented Soaking Solution because I loved them. I still love them, but I have started making my on that I love more. Not only can I make them whatever scent I want, but they are so much more affordable! If you love taking a bath, you should definitely make your own scented Epsom salts. Store them in an airtight container and keep for yourself or give them to the bath lover in your life. 

Scented Epsom Salts

4 cups Epsom salts
1/4 cup baking soda
1/4 cup mild scented oil such as apricot or sweet almond* 
30 to 40 drops of essential oil of choice**

I use up to two cups in hot water and soak for about 40 minutes. 

*Oils like olive and grapeseed are fine to use, but they have a stronger scent. 

**A few of my favorite essential oils are bergamot, grapefruit, and lavender. 


  1. Thanks for the tip. Do you tell in the post how/why/when yo use the epsom salts detox?

  2. Hi! Yes, in my first post about detox baths (the one I linked to in this post) I explain about my original dislike of baths, and how and why I came to appreciate a long soak in the tub.


Thanks for visiting and taking the time to leave a friendly comment! :-)
