Making your own seaweed soak is surprisingly easy and full of highly beneficial nutrients and minerals for your skin. I added fresh rose petals to the mix since I happened to have some on hand, but feel free to substitute for dried roses or a few more drops of essential fragrance oil.
You don’t have to add any fragrance enhancing ingredients if you’re looking for a more pure soak, but I find the smell of wet seaweed lingers on my skin without the fragrance oils…so it’s simply my personal preference.
Rose Petal and Seaweed Salt Soak
- 1/4 cup dried seaweed
- 1/4 cup dead sea salt
- 1/4 cup Epsom salt
- 1 tablespoon rose petals
- 10 drops chamomile essential oil
Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and stir to thoroughly combine. Transfer into a muslin bag, add to very hot running bath water and soak for 20 to 30 minutes.
Double or triple the recipe so you have enough for a few weeks. Treat yourself to this relaxing and nourishing soak every weekend and you’ll find yourself fully recharged for the week ahead!
