Relaxing Lavender Bath

Lavender. One of my all time favorite essential oils that Young Living actually carries it in two forms: regular and vitality. And for the purpose of this relaxing lavender bath recipe, either or can be used.

Young Living‘s entire vitality line, the bottles made easily distinguishable by their white labels, can be used for dietary purposes- as well as placed in a diffuser to be misted gently into the air. And lavender is known to be soothing. Calming.

It can also add just a subtle hint of flavor- though just the right amount, when used correctly. Those of you that tried my Orange Zest and Lavender Muffins recipe or the Strawberry Lavender Spritzers can attest to that, I’m sure.

And it’s just that hint of subtly which makes it a great addition- in this case, to a bath, not a drink- after a long day.

DIY Lavender Bath


While attempting to gather supplies at my local Hobby Lobby to make some DIY lotions and scrubs this evening, I came across the following recipe on the back of a bag of Sea Salt. As I was reading over it, the simplicity caught my attention, and I thought to myself, I’ve gotta try that!

So with only 4 ingredients necessary, it took less time than a trip through the drive thru to pick up what I needed and commence making myself a relaxing lavender bath.

The beauty of this concoction is that it can be stored in sealed container and left tub side for the future, or it can be used immediately- no waiting necessary!

Just take a small handful, toss it into a tub of warm water, and voila! Add self, and it’s a done deal.

The recipe can be found on the above pictures, as well as below.

Then, spoon into a (preferably) seal-able, glass container, such as an 8oz mason jar.

Here, the salt can be kept until needed.

Before use, just take a couple of spoonfuls and drop into the warm water.

Then sit back, and relax, with the soothing aroma of Lavender.

    Hi Tara! I definitely need to up my game and have more relaxing baths. With two small kids, a household to run, my blog and a full-time job it’s pretty hard to make time for myself. I know you know what I mean! I do like scented oils and this recipe sounds like I need to go to the store and grab myself some Epsom salt. I did have quite a hard week after all. Thank you for the idea and for leaving me your blog link in my EBA post!

      Suhana, A video would be amazing. Definitely on my to do list for in the future, but no. As of right now I’ve yet to start a YouTube channel. I’ll bear your comment in mind for in the future though. I agree that visuals like videos can do wonders for explanation.
