you will need

  • 250 grams of Himalayan salt or Dead Sea salt
  • Dried flower petals from begonias, carnations and roses, for example
  • Essential oils such as rose, lavender, eucalyptus or rosemary

how to make it

Dry the flowers by hanging them in a well-ventilated place, or you can dry them in the oven on a low setting. Check out our tips on drying flowers here.

Make sure you have a clean pot with a lid. Mix the ingredients in a bowl. Add 20 drops of essential oil to 250 grams of salt. Rose oil relaxes you, a bath with lavender oil before going to sleep helps you to sleep and eucalyptus or rosemary has a refreshing effect. Add a handful of dried flower petals. We used different coloured carnations and roses. Decorate your bath with fresh begonias to finish it off.

Get the bathroom ready for your cocooning moment with a nice playlist, a relaxing cup of tea and a steaming bath - and your homemade bath salts! The bath salts act as a cleanser and exfoliator and the essential oils and flowers give your skin a velvety kiss. Enjoy it, you've earned it!
