Cold & Sinus Relief Bath Salts

Cold & Sinus Relief Bath Salts

Everyone here at Sparkle HQ is feeling a little under the weather, so we found some relief in hot baths with eucalyptus oil to help clear our noses and ease our ragged breathing.

A hot soak in the tub melts away that crappy feeling of being sick for a little while — it’s so relaxing and smells great!


1 cup Epsom salts

½ cup baking soda

20 drops eucalyptus essential oil

15 drops lemon essential oil

Mix everything well in a bowl and it’s ready to use. This is enough for one bath but if you want to whip up a big batch to store, multiply this recipe by three or four times if you like!

Did you know? Epsom salts are not actually salt but a mineral compound that helps to ease tense and aching muscles, reduces inflammation, and improves circulation among its many benefits.

Eucalyptus is a decongestant and is anti-inflammatory as well and we have added some lemon essential oil in this bath salt recipe simply because it’s refreshing and would help rejuvenate flagging spirits.
