Elemi Rejuvenating Bath Salts

Essentials Video: Elemi Rejuvenating Bath Salts

Tired, sore muscles? Aching, stiff joints? We all know just how soothing a warm, Epsom salt bath can be. What better way to elevate this simple remedy than with some amazing essential oils. Elemi, with its pleasantly sweet and musky aroma, is well known for helping soothe overexerted muscles. Additionally, the fresh scent of citrus will help relieve nervous tension and promote relaxation. These Elemi Rejuvenating Bath Salts are an easy DIY that can help turn your bath into a rejuvenating spa experience.

Please note, use soap coloring instead of food coloring to prevent staining of the skin or the tub. Also, Orange Blood can be substituted for Orange Sweet or Bergamot.

  • I tried this the other day and love the scent! I think something about the recipe is off though… I think the soap and essential oils ended up clumped together and floating on the water. I used Dr. Bronner’s liquid Castile soap, anyone have better luck with something else?

    1. I’ve personally tried the recipe with unscented body wash and didn’t have any issues there. Or maybe add the bath salts while the water is still running to help the castile soap disperse?

  • Made this the other evening because my back was aching again. Finally was able to try it out this evening and I will definitely make this again. I am not overly a fan of the Elemi scent wise but with the blood orange it was very nice and grounding. Back pain is gone, but next batch I will not add the baking soda. Wasn’t a fan how that interacted with everything.

    1. Elemi is a resinous oil, so it’s similar to oils like Frankincense and Myrrh. For this particular recipe, Frankincense Carteri would be a good option, but you could probably use whatever Frankincense you have on hand.

  • I love these!! I used bergamot and pink grapefruit in mine for an uplifting scent. Love this recipe!

  • I finally have all the essential oils I need to make Elemi Rejuvenating Bath Salts! I can’t wait to relax in the bath with this great combination. Just in time for tired muscles from gardening. Thank you!

  • This recipe looks great however I did not purchase Elemi. What can I substitute for Elemi in this recipe. I love Epsom salts with essential oils and bubble bath. It’s so relaxing!

  • I just read another blog, somewhere else, that says using soap with your Epsom salts makes them less effective. I will be giving this recipe a try without the soap. Else I is wonderful!

  • I love making my family bath salts for different ailments. Thanks for the ideas! We love Plant Therapy oils!

  • So the unscented body wash is the castile soap you used? How long will this store for, as I want to make this for a friend who’s birthday is coming up soon. Thanks Corinna

  • One of my favorite grounding baths is a soak with Elemi Frankincense and Myrrh. I think it is the Elemi that makes it so grounding. I will definitely be trying this one. Elemi is such a nice resin oil. Frankincense gets all the glory but Elemi definitely deserves praise.

    1. Chrystal, baking soda is excellent to help soothe inflamed skin and irritation. Feel free to remove it from this recipe if you wish, though 🙂

  • I made this over the weekend and love the scent of the Elemi and Blood Orange together. Next time I will leave out the baking soda. Mine all clumped up and I had it floating in my bath.

  • I always use Lavender in my bath salts, but this sounds great! I have Elemi and never really know what to use it in. I am excited to have a recipe that sounds like something I will use.

  • I made this DIY (slightly modified without the coloring or Elemi) on the weekend and it was fabulous! very relaxing. You could use any EO you want really depending on your relaxation scent preference.

  • I love the orange blood smell so I can’t wait to try this recipe! Thank you for sharing this.

  • I normally just use one oil with ebsom, this sounds even better! I’ll try it with castille soap. Thanks for the ideas PT!

  • Oh, I’ll definitely try this recipe! I recently purchased Elemi and thinking of ways to put it to good use other than the usual topical application. Thank you, PT!

  • I make bath salt to address my sore achy muscles. I have never used Elemi. This sounds good, will give it a try as I do have a Elemi that I won last year from PT. Thank you.

  • So glad to have some other ideas on how to use this oil. I’m not crazy about the smell, so I don’t diffuse it, but I LOVE the way it makes my skin feel when I add it to bubble bath. Can’t wait to try this DIY!

  • I wish I had time to take more relaxing baths. Maybe if I whip this up, I will take more me time. Thank you for the recipe!
