DIY Beachy Bath Soak

It's the weekend, y'all! And I think we all need to relax, don't you? Add a handful of this make-in-a-minute Beachy Bath Soak to your bath and soak away your stressful week. It's so easy to mix, smells wonderful, and makes me think instantly of the beach. It's almost like a mini-beach vacation. Almost! Enjoy.

Need:
  • 1/c Epsom Salt or Dead Sea Salt
  • 1 tsp. melted coconut oil
  • 1-2 drops essential oil(s) or body-safe fragrance oil(s)
  • container

Do:
  • Pour salts into container and add coconut oil. I am using Skinny & Co. Coconut Oil that I was sent to try. It is 100% alkaline pure, raw, virgin coconut oil and is a wonderful product that I would highly recommend. Your skin will feel so soft.
  • Next, I added coconut cream body-safe fragrance oil to further enhance the scent. Coconut is one of my FAVE smells. 
  • Mix and let dry for a couple of hours (preferably). Remember, we aren't making a salt scrub here, just a light coating of the coconut oil.
  • Add to bath and relax for 20 minutes.



FYI:
  • Not into coconut? Other beachy scents I've used are citrus, like lemons or oranges, sandalwood/musk, or tropical.
  • I kept the salts as is, but feel free to add a soap colorant, like blue, to make them the color of the sea.
  • While I am sharing the recipe for one use, feel free to make to your specifications. I like about a half cup, but have used up to 2 for a bath.
  • This makes a cute gift!
  • These will store for up to a year in a sealable container.
  • If necessary, please consult doctor before using or making this recipe.
  • Exercise caution when entering/exiting the tub.
