I love walking into Bath and Body Works! You are overwhelmed by all of the different aromas. My favorite scent in Eucalyptus Spearmint. It smells so fresh and clean! Now that I have turned our kitchen into my own apothecary, I re-created the scent and whipped up these Eucalyptus Spearmint Bath Salts with my essential oils!
Do you remember the episode of friends where Chandler tries the bath salts? “The bath salts! They’re starting to effervesce! It’s different. (Pause) It’s interesting.” LOL
Anyways, I digress….
To create these bath salts, you only need two ingredients plus your essential oils!
1 cup of mineral salt or Epsom salt
1/2 cup baking soda (for the effervescing)
3 drops of spearmint oil
8 drops of eucalyptus radiata oil
Begin by mixing the salt and baking soda together. Be sure to get all of the baking soda mixed in with the salts.
Next, add the oils. I start with the spearmint because it is the strongest and you are trying to balance out the smell.
Stir well and store in an air tight glass container. I found these at Michaels.
Eucalyptus has a great fresh and invigorating scent. Combine that with spearmint’s relaxing scent and it makes for the perfect bath at the end of a long day!
