After making the Lavender Rose Salt Scrub a few weeks ago I got to thinking how lovely a bath soak would be :) So I got out my mixing bowls and essential oils and went to work. With Mother's day just around the corner this recipe makes a perfect gift for your mom, sister, aunt or friend. This recipe combines the lovely floral scent of rose with the sweet citrus scent of Tangerine and Bergamot essential oils and the heart opening energy of Rose Quartz stones.
Glass mixing bowl
1 cup Epsom Salts
1 cup pink Himalayan salt (I used the larger granular)
2 tbsp organic dried rose petals (or more if you like)
2 drops Rose essential oil*
5 drops of Tangerine essential oil
5 drops Bergamot essential oil
20 drops rose hip seed oil*
muslin bags *
5-7 small tumbled rose quartz crystals*
*These ingredients are optional
- In a glass bowl mix salts and dried rose petals together until well combined.
- Add in rose hip seed oil and essential oils and mix well. Rose hip seed will make this moisturizing to the skin.
- Store in an airtight glass jar.
- To use scoop 1/4-1/2 cup into a small muslin bag. (You can add directly to the bath but you will want to skim the dried rose petals before letting the water drain).
- Add muslin bag into warm bath water and swish around until salts dissolve.
- Add 5-7 small tumbled rose quartz crystals in the tub around you. (Be sure to remove before draining the water)
- Sit back, relax and breath in the delicious scent.
So you may be asking why crystals in the tub?
By infusing your bath water with crystals it can help balance the chakras (energy centers) in the body, manifest intentions an influence energies. Crystals have their own healing frequencies and can travel easily in water because water is a good conductor. Water is also highly programmable so by adding the crystals you can raise the frequency of the bath water you are relaxing in. Win win!
Rose quartz is great stone for love, kindness, compassion and self-love. Good stone to use for emotional healing and to promote joy and peacefulness. Helps to open the heart chakra and connect with divine energy. Rose quartz has been used in beauty regimens for centuries. You can actually apply them to your face to areas that are puffy.

Affirmations are positive statements that can help you to overcome negative thoughts. When you repeat them often, and believe in them, you can start to make positive changes. Here are some great heart opening affirmations to use while soaking in your essential oil & crystal infused bath.
"I am fully open to giving and receiving love"
"My Love is unconditional"
"I invite peace into my heart"
"I open my heart to receive and express the energy of love"
Tangerine has a sweet, calming aroma. It has a very concentrated citrus scent that is sweeter than any others in the citrus family. It is great for emotional balance and is very calming to the mind.
Bergamot has a very uplifting and refreshing scent perfect for opening up the heart chakra to radiate love energy. It is also good for emotional balance and can help relieve tension during times of occasional stress. It can be soothing to the skin & has skin cleansing properties.
