DIY Matcha Bath Salts

DIY Matcha Bath Salts

I had SO MATCHA fun with this self-care DIY!


Matcha Bath Salts are a part of my self-care regimen. In this fast-paced world, I often find that I need moments to slow down and disconnect. My favorite way to do this is by running a hot bath and unwinding in a matcha salt bath — matcha is my happy place. I intentionally use ingredients that have beneficial properties for your skin (like matcha and dead sea salt), while magnesium and lavender essential oil promotes deep relaxation. The rose petals are just a nice touch, because… why not??

Ingredients:

 

Directions:

  1. Place Dead Sea salt and magnesium flakes in a medium-sized bowl
  2. Add 3 tsp of our Supplement Grade Matcha and mix thoroughly to evenly coat the salt and magnesium flakes
  3. Add drops of lavender essential oil into the mixture. Stir to spread the oils to each granule of salt/magnesium
  4. Stop and smell the lavender. Take a deep breath in, breathe out… okay, let’s continue
  5. Sprinkle in dried rose petals/buds and stir gently — it’s totally okay if some of the petals break off from the bud
  6. Voila! You now have the perfect blend of matcha bath salts to #treatyourself or your matcha bae to a relaxing bath. This can also be stored in an air-tight container or mason jar. I also love traveling with a tiny jar of this blend to treat myself to a salt bath when on the go because #selfcarematters.

 


Using this matcha bath salt blend:

  1. We recommend using 1/2 cup of this blend in a hot bath — feel free to add more if you wish
  2. Dissolve the salt blend in the warm/hot water
  3. Get some towels ready! Depending on how much matcha you used, you may want to refrain from using white towels 
  4. Once finished, drain your bathtub immediately. Spray with all-purpose cleaner and scrub-a-dub-dub any matcha residue off of your tub

 

Don’t forget to set the tone:

  • Dim the lights (I prefer to turn the lights off completely and bath in candlelight)
  • Play your #selflove playlist or relaxing mediation music or read a book
  • Bring a little bubbly with you. Use one of our Single Serve Sticks and stir it into a glass of white wine or a drink of your choice.
  • Fill the space with what you love; snacks, chocolate, place a laptop on the counter to Netflix and Chill… I love filling the space with my favorite crystals

 

Fun facts about the ingredients we used in this blend:

  • Matcha is known to have anti-inflammatory properties and can reduce the redness of skin conditions like acne and rosacea.
  • Dead Sea Salt contains 21 minerals that include magnesium, calcium, bromide, sodium, zinc, and potassium. These minerals are known to detoxify and cleanse our bodies.
  • Magnesium is known to improve skin hydration, decrease inflammation, has stress-relieving properties, and improves sleep.
  • Lavender essential oil is known to have anti-inflammatory properties for treating skin conditions topically, whereas its fragrance when used in aromatherapy induces deep sleep, relieves stress, and reduces anxiety.
