In an earlier post we discussed the Danish, and now worldwide, concept of hygge, or being mindful of life’s simple pleasures. Of course we are not going to leave you without some practical tips on how to make an ideal product or two, whether you want to use them for yourself, or begin a small-scale business selling hygge-friendly products. Below, learn the hygge of baths, and bath salts, and discover a recipe for a simple, comforting and all natural bath salt.
Baths are pretty darn hygge, as they demand you slow down, take time for yourself, and enjoy the simple pleasure of dissolving into a warm body of water, something that has been universally enjoyed by humans through the ages. Bath salts make that bath all the more healthful, and enjoyable, as they can help relieve stress, hydrate skin, and help respiratory problems while delivering a pleasing aroma to your bathing experience.
Hygge isn’t about buying things, so you can double your hygge by making your own bath salts. It’s a fun beginner-level DIY body-care product project that you can use yourself, give as a gift, or sell. With that in mind, here’s a simple bath salt recipe you can modify to your own preferences. Mix 2 cups of epsom salts with the following: ½ cup baking soda; an optional ¼ cup Dead Sea salt; 30 drops of lavender essential oil; 10 drops of peppermint essential oil; and two tablespoons of either coconut oil, argan oil, jojoba oil or any other pleasing essential oil to taste. Store these in an airtight container to keep fresh, and use any amount up to ¼ cup in your warm water bath.
And, of course, it is our duty to tell you that many of the ingredients for your hygge DIY bath salts are available at All In Packaging. We are always expanding our sortment of cosmetics ingredients, including coconut oil, argan oil, jojoba oil, and many other essential oils you may want to experiment with in your homemade bath salts.
