Mint Lavender Mineral Bath Recipe

For thousands of years, pink Himalayan salt has been known for its many benefits. Packed with numerous minerals that are important for health – including calcium, iron, copper, iodine, zinc, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, sodium, potassium, and selenium. No wonder, it is a favorite choice by many to soak in!

Pink Himalayan salt is so mineral rich, soaking in a bath of it helps our skin and bodies to absorb minerals. In fact, it’s called dermal absorption when the skin soaks up minerals.


Ingredients for a Mint Lavender DIY Mineral Bath:

1 cup pink Himalayan salt

4 drops lavender essential oil

1 teaspoon apricot kernel oil

4 chocolate mint leaves

1 teaspoon lavender buds
