Homemade Pink Grapefruit Salt Soak

This homemade pink grapefruit salt soak is so easy to mix up and an effective way to detoxify your whole body.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups pure Himalayan pink salt (medium to coarse)
  • 1 TB. sweet almond oil
  • 10-15 drops pink grapefruit essential oil

Instructions

  1. Mix ingredients in a bowl and divide between 2 jars.
  2. Store in the refrigerator to keep fresh until use. Makes 2 bath soaks.

Bath Instructions

  1. Because of the natural detox properties of this soak, it is recommended to drink lots of water before, during and after the bath. As with any medical condition, check with your doctor before taking a detox bath. Do not use on broken skin and keep away from eyes.

  2. Add 3/4 cup of bath soak (1 jar) to the tub as you're filling with very warm water. Allow to dissolve (you may have to stir the water around with your hand).
  3. Soak for 20-30 minutes, drinking at least one 8 oz. glass of water while you're in the tub (preferably with a squeeze of fresh lemon).

  4. Exercise caution getting out of the tub, especially if you're feeling light-headed or weak. Pat yourself dry to allow the mineral-rich water to soak into your skin or rinse off if you prefer. Follow with at least one more 8 oz. glass of water.

Foot Soak Instructions

  1. Place 1/4 cup of bath soak into a basin or pedicure tub filled with very warm water. Soak your feet for 15-20 minutes. Pat dry and remove dead skin with a pumice stone. 
  2. Follow with good quality foot lotion or coconut oil (and socks). Your feet will be very soft and sandal ready!

Recipe Notes

For a Mother's Day gift or any other occasion, finish the jar off with some baker's twine or ribbon, a sprig of flowers and a pretty tag. Be sure print the recipe and instructions to pass along.
