DIY | Time to Relax! Fruity Orange Bathing Salt

Hey guys! Don’t you think it is time to relax already? Although it is getting warmer every day, taking a bath can relax your muscles and your mind. And how better to take a bath using a soothing bathing salt? Of course, you could run to your next supermarket/drug store and get some, but isn’t it better to know what’s in there? That’s always one of the reasons I am doing stuff myself, and I am just starting to explore body care products.

Because things you buy at the store always contain something you don’t know, or maybe even want on your skin. So making body care products yourself gives you the power to control the ingredients, the colour, the fragrance, the texture, everything! Although I already had a try at a refreshing Cucumber Face Mist, or a Coconut Coffee Scrub, I am still quite new to making such things. But it’s already so much fun to use your own products and they’re just a perfect gift for nice people. Just like this bathing salt.

The Tutorial

You need:

  • 1 orange
  • 2 cups of Dead Sea salt
  • 1 cup of milk powder
  • 15 drops of orange essential oil

Start by grating the orange’s skin.

Next, mix the Dead Sea salt and the milk powder in a bowl. Then add the orange essential oil and the orange zest.

Lastly, mix everything with a spoon and fill it in a nice jar. The bathing salt can fill two medium-sized glass jars. That’s it.

Pretty easy, huh? Now you just have to run yourself a nice bath and add that gloriously smelling bathing salt! The Dead Sea salt will detoxify your skin, and the milk powder will make it super soft. And doesn’t it smell amazing? Really makes me think of sunshine, sunscreen and cocktails…What do you think?
