A hot bath is the perfect way to relax and unwind – especially during the winter months. There are a variety of “bath additives,” like bath bombs, bath oils, bubble bars and bath salts. In terms of DIY, bath salts are one of the easiest to make. Simply adding plain salt (such as Epsom salt or Dead Sea salt) straight to the tub is great for the skin. But, taking the time to add a few simple ingredients to the salts creates an extra luxurious experience.
This Rosehip Seed Bath Salt recipe is made with fine grained Dead Sea salt. Bramble Berry’s Dead Sea salt comes from Israel via the Dead Sea, where many people travel to soak in its water. Dead Sea salt contains a large amount of magnesium, potassium, bromides and chloride which feel great on the skin. If you prefer a difference type of salt, feel free to swap it.

Rosehip seed oil adds vitamins A and C, and gives your bath water moisturizing properties. Rosehip seed oil is considered a “dry oil,” which means it soaks easily into the skin. A touch of evening primrose extract is also added, which is wonderful for dry and mature skin. Polysorbate 80 disperses the oil throughout the bath water and prevents it from pooling on top. Rose Quartz Fragrance Oil adds a light rosy scent. Rose petals and a touch of Rose Gold Mica dress up the salts, but can be omitted if you prefer.
