Epsom Salt Bath Tea

Ingredients for Epsom Salt Bath Tea - lavender buds and Ultra Epsom salt


  • 16 ounces (2 cups) Ultra Epsom Salt (any grain size)
  • Sweet Orange essential oil
  • Dried Lavender buds
  • Dried Chamomile flowers
  • Four 3" x 5" tea bags (or substitute organza or muslin bags)


In a glass mixing bowl, add the essential oil to the Ultra Epsom Salt and mix well. Add the dried herbs and stir to combine. Fill each tea bag with approximately 4 ounces of the mixture. If you are packaging the bath teas, pack them individually in plastic to seal in the scent.

To use the bath tea, simply toss a bag into warm bath water. As the tea bag seeps, the salts will dissolve and the fragrance from the essential oils and herbs will disperse. Dispose of the tea bag after the bath, or the organza or muslin bags can be re-used.

Makes 4 tea bags

CAUTION: Essential oils may cause sensitivity to your skin. Oils you should avoid in your bath salt recipes include but are not limited to: basil, oregano, thyme, nutmeg, clove, cinnamon, black pepper, and bay (Pimenta and Laurus)

Consult your physician before using essential oils if you have high blood pressure, are pregnant or have other medical concerns.
