What Are the Best Bath and Skin Care Recipes?

Wondering how to create bath salts recipes? This homemade salt recipe helps soothe sore, dry muscles, relax you to the next steamy bath, and calm you down from your day's stress with just four different ingredients to help you customize your own bath salt recipe to suit your unique needs. You can find out what bath salt recipes you can use in your daily bath rituals, including recipes for body wash, skin care, and bath oil.

The first bath salt recipes, I'll share with you are for the soap. These recipes create a luxurious lather that has the ability to leave your skin feeling soft, supple, and refreshed.

Combine four cups of Epsom salts with one tablespoon of olive oil in a container and heat it in a microwave for ten minutes until it's warm water again. Add one tablespoon of Castor oil to this mixture to make the soap and mix thoroughly. The resulting soap is extremely rich in vitamins A and E that make you feel young and healthy. To further infuse the soap with these benefits, add one teaspoon of jojoba or cocoa butter to the mixture. These ingredients help to give the soap a unique natural scent that you can easily incorporate into your bath and body routines.

The body wash is one of the simplest recipes for homemade soap and comes in a variety of scents including lavender and chamomile. Combine four cups of Epsom salts and two cups of pure honey to create a foamy body wash. Mix your body wash with four cups of water and add enough drops of lavender or chamomile to cover the entire mixture. When it has finished foaming, add a few drops of essential oil to it. For example, you could add lavender essential oil to the soap and mix it until it dissolves. This will give it a unique scent that everyone will enjoy.

The body lotion is another wonderful addition to your bath and body rituals. This bath salt recipe can be applied directly to dry, flaky skin to gently exfoliate and remove dead skin cells. Using a cotton ball, dab the body lotion on your body after it has soaked in water for five minutes. This bath salt recipe also provides moisture and is great for soothing cracked skin. Use one to two tablespoons of Epsom salt to a cup of water when you are applying the body lotion to your skin to ensure that you get the maximum benefits for your skin care needs.

You can use this bath salt recipe for making your own skin care products. To make a skin mask, mix three to four tablespoons of Epsom salt with one tablespoon of tea tree oil and one tablespoon of essential oil to create a lather. Leave this on your face or other areas of your skin overnight and then rinse it off in the morning with a mild cleanser.

Another easy homemade recipe for your skin care routine is for a moisturizing bath. Combine four cups of filtered water with one tablespoon of Shea butter in a bowl and add a half-teaspoon of a clove of garlic powder. Once you have mixed this together and added your desired amount of salt, add in an additional half teaspoon of a clove of garlic powder and stir until this mixture has dissolved. Now apply this mixture to your skin in layers while still soaking your skin in the bath water for about 20 minutes. This gives you the added benefit of a moisturizing effect and helps to seal in moisture.

For extra specialized benefits, combine the four essential bath and skin care recipes for your daily ritual to make a unique skin care product. You may also choose to use this bath salt recipe to create a skin mask by combining it with rose water, honey, cinnamon powder, and a drop or two of lemon juice. By using the bath salts recipe as a base to build on, you can create all types of products to create a healthy lifestyle and an improved and rejuvenated skin that looks and feels it's very best!
