Tired Muscle Salt Soak

Tired Muscle Salt Soak

1 Cup Epsom Salt
½ Cup Sea Salt
3-5 Drops of Malaleuca Essential Oil
3-5 Drops of Peppermint Essential Oil
3-5 Drops of Cedarwood Essential Oil
3-5 Drops of Eucalyptus Essential Oil
1-2 Drops Yellow Liquid Soap Dye (optional-found at craft stores)

Pour Salt into a medium mixing bowl.  Slowly drop essentials oils in one drop at a time.  Add one drop of yellow dye, stirring salt quickly (it may adhere to some pieces of salt more than others…you can fish those out).  I was going for a very light yellow color.  Add another drop or two until you reach the color you like.  Pour into containers. 

How to order essential oils:
If you are looking for essential oils, I recommend using doTERRA's certified, pure therapeutic grade oils.  You can find them at  my doTERRA store .  If you'd like to receive wholesale prices, 25% off retail, please comment below or email me, and I can help you sign up.

You can find containers for bath products at thrift stores, craft stores, or the grocery store (mason jars work).  I found these bags at Hobby Lobby and used a 40% off coupon I found online.


  1. How much salt do you recommend using in a bath at a time? I'd like to try your recipe and give as gifts, but want to offer instructions with the soak. Thank you! I just found your site last week and love it.

    1. Thank you so much! I would recommend using 1/2 cup to 1 cup per soak. I'm so glad you visited, and have a wonderful Christmas.
