Homemade bath soak

  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Completion Time: 15 - 20 minutes

Nothing is as relaxing as a long, hot bath. It gives you some time to unwind and think (and maybe read a book). And you can’t really say “long, hot baths” without bath salts in the equation. 

Bath salts are relaxing and provide a number of cosmetic and health benefits. Soaking in a warm salt solution, even just once a week for 15 - 20 minutes, offers great benefits in terms of improving the skin barrier function, hydrating and moisturising the skin, and decreasing inflammation.

They also soothe pain and help with insomnia – no more sleepless nights. 

With all that said, let’s get to creating an inexpensive, healthy, soothing, and beautiful DIY bath soak. Share your creations on social media using #PerfectlymadeForEachOther, and you could be featured on the Consol Facebook page! Don’t forget to tag us.

Materials Needed

Amount Material
1 cup Epsom salt
1/2 cup Coarse grain salt (sea salt or kosher salt work well)
1/4 cup Bicarbonate of soda
1/4 cup Dried lavender or rose petals
5 - 10 Drops of your favourite essential oil (we recommend lemongrass, peppermint, or orange!)
291ml Consol My Jar
Bath Soak 2


  1. Mix all the ingredients in a large glass bowl using clean hands or a clean spatula. Store in Consol jars until use, as well as in a cool, dry place for up to 6 months (3 months if you use oils).
  2. Pour 1/2 cup to 1 full cup in each hot bath for a wonderful and relaxing soak. This recipe makes about 5 cups in total, which should last you between 5-10 indulgent soaks/baths.
  3. Enjoy these from glass, because bath salts and Consol jars are #PerfectlyMadeforEachOther
