Make this quick & easy Dead Sea salt bath to relax and enjoy its many health benefits, including relieving sore muscles!
I love making all-natural bath and body products for my own family and to give as gifts. This Dead Sea salt bath recipe is no exception!

Bath Salt Packaging
All bath salts need to be stored in airtight containers so the damp air in the bathroom won’t turn them into a solid brick. You can use mason jars or any containers you like. I personally like to make mine look pretty, especially if I’m going to give them as gifts. I got these glass jars and cute wood scoops from Amazon.
B. glass jars with airtight lids (these are the ones I’m using)
C. chalkboard sticker labels (I love this brand & use them on everything!)
1. Combine dry ingredients.
Combine the epsom salt, Dead Sea salt, and baking soda in a medium-sized mixing bowl and stir with a fork.
2. Combine oils
Combine the sweet almond oil and essential oils in a small bowl and stir well. I’m using chamomile essential oil, but you can substitute any skin-safe essential oils you like. The Dead Sea salt does have its own earthy salty fragrance, so if you want this to come through you can omit the essential oils altogether.
3. Add oils to salt mixture.
Pour the oil mixture into the salt mixture and stir with a fork. Then use your hands (gloved if you prefer) to sift the bath salts through your fingers and disperse the oils throughout. This is also a good opportunity to break up any clumps of salt or baking soda.
4. Fill jar/s.
Use a spoon to fill your jars with bath salts, leaving a little space at the top.
5. Label jars.
I like to use vinyl sticker labels for bath salts since they’re likely to be stored near a damp bathtub. These are my favorite chalkboard sticker labels. I like to use a white paint pen to write the labels so it won’t wash off if it happens to get wet.
