DIY Eucalyptus Tea Tree Bath Soak

It’s a new year, and like all of you, we are looking forward to all the new adventures to come! With that said, we don’t want the cold or flu to keep us down from all the exciting things in store for 2018. These last few weeks have been brutal for us as we have both been fighting off an intense cold. So, we decided to bring to all of you what we have found to lessen the congestion instantly as well as provide a great calming escape if not just for a few minutes to recuperate from the hectic holiday season.

Y’all…this is going to be your best friend this winter. It’s cold out, which means everyone has been taking refuge inside to keep warm. Therefore, you are exposed to so much more…meaning germs. Gear up, people! And lets be honest, nothing makes you feel better when sick like a warm bath or shower.

Therefore, we are sharing an ah-mazing DIY Eucalyptus Tea Tree Bath Soak that will fill your bathroom and head with the beautiful scents mentioned (plus, a little lavender). Take your EmergenC, stock up on tissues, and whip up some of this quick and easy bath soak ASAP to have on hand for when you don’t feel 100% or to use on those days you just need some relaxation.

This bath soak is so easy to make. All you need is espom salt (which is amazing on its own, by the way!), baking soda, coconut oil, and essential oils. An optional addition is to color your bath soaking salts like we did. If you do, be sure to use soap colorant and not food coloring.

Grab your supplies and start feeling better, babes!

What You Need

1 cup Epsom salt

2 tsp coconut oil

1/2 cup baking soda

7-8 drops eucalyptus essential oil

7-8 drops lavender essential oil

4-5 drops tea tree essential oil

NOTE: You can also buy a set of essential oils that contain all of the basic/most common ones used, like this one linked here.

green/teal soap colorant (optional)

Step by Step

1. Combine your Epsom salt, baking soda and coconut oil (not melted) in a small mixing bowl.

2. Once all ingredients are fully combined, add in your essential oils and mix until combined throughout.

3. Lastly, add in your soap colorant until you have the color you want. We used a teal color that came with our set of soap colorants (linked here). Feel free to color it any color you wish.

4. Measure out into little mason jars or square jars with a hinge lid to give as cute gifts for your friends this winter. Or, fill some up for yourself and simply leave next to your bathroom or shower for easy access for when you need it.

5. When you are ready to use it, pour about 1/2 cup (or more if desired) of the bath soak under warm running water. Soak for at least 20-30 minutes to let the vapors help clear out your sinuses, and allow the Epsom salt to soothe any sore muscles.
