Ryan's Homemade Sea Salt Bath Soak with natural British sea salt flakes, organic lavender, natural eucalyptus leaves, rose petals and conditioning natural rapeseed oil.
Today, I made another batch of my homemade Sea Salt Bath Soak, to ease aching muscles and bring calm to a tired mind after a stressful day, or for when you just need to unwind. I've been making this bath soak for a few years and often given it away as a small gifts. Quite a few people have asked me how I make it, so here for the first time, I'm giving you my recipe. Try it yourself - it's very easy! This recipe will produce about a litre of dry bath soak.
The basic ingredients:
• Maldon Natural Sea Salt Flakes from the Blackwater Estuary (250g) available in most supermarkets, including Sainsbury's;
• approx 12-16 large fresh eucalyptus leaves (from your local florist),
• a handful of dried red rose petals;
• 15g of 'Suma' dried culinary lavender flowers from organic or health food shops;
• 10ml Lavender Pure Essential Oil;
• 20ml Rapeseed Oil.
The basic method:
• Add the salt to a large mixing bowl;
• Strip the eucalyptus leaves off the stems and finely chop them. Add to the salt;
• Crush the dried rose petals with your hands - add to the salt
• Pour in the lavender flowers;
• Roughly mix with your hands or a wooden spatula
• Drizzle the lavender oil over the mix and mix thoroughly with a wooden spatula;
• Mix in the rapeseed oil and you'll be left with the bath soak pictured above.
The End Product:
• Spoon into resealable jars for your bathroom (pictured below), or into organza bags (pictured above) to give as gifts.
• One serving spoon or a large dessert spoon per hot bath tub is sufficient. The quantity made should last ages!
• Sea Salt: £1.60
