Homemade Spa Bath

One of my favourite things to do is to use flowers in my bath. After my birthday a few weeks ago I now have a few still lovely bunches of drying flowers and plenty of roses among them. It is almost their time for the compost but I’d rather use them for a bit of pampering so I get to enjoy them twice. 

This bathing salt recipe is super easy and only uses kitchen and bathroom staples. 

100g pink Himalayan salt
100g Epsom 
{or 200g of either one depending on what’s in your cupboards}

1 tsp bicarbonate of soda if you have it.

A handful of drying rose petals. 

[This photo shows you what mine looks like this time with pink and yellow roses. Depending on what you add it changes look and fragrance.]

Add all ingredients into a bowl and mix well. You can add essential oils if you wish but if your rose petals are still moist they will fragrance the salts for you. Fill a glass jar, close it neatly and leave the mix for a few days. You will see the rose leaves dry out as the salt takes on their moisture. It’s ready to use within a few days. 

You can also use lavender, rosemary, chamomile, thyme and other herbs you may have around the house or growing in your garden. Use what you have and know to be safe. That said, do buy yourself a bunch of roses! You deserve it! 

Time to run a hot bath. Enjoy and let me know how you liked your bath time.
