Mustard Seed & Mint Bath Salt

Refresh The Spirit with Mustard Seed and Mint Bath Salt

If you're looking for an exotic mint bath salt recipe that leaves a person feeling unbelievably rejuvenated and refreshed, look no further!

This pale yellow bath salt mixture lifts the mind and body through a perfect combination of Epsom Salt, Mint Essential Oil, Mustard Seed Powder and Baking Soda.

Epsom salt soothes tired muscles while mustard seed draws out toxins and warms the skin.

Meanwhile, mint invigorates skin cells and deeply penetrates the mind as steamy mint vapors are inhaled. Plus, baking soda leaves the skin feeling soft and supple.

Rejuvenating Mustard & Mint Bath Salt Recipe...

You decide how intense you want the scent by varying the amount of essential oil you add. I like to add up to 20 drops for a very fragrant mixture. The scent calms down significantly as it is diluted with a tub full of water.

Note: This makes a great foot soak too!


  • 2 cups Epsom Salt or Sea Salt
  • 1/4 cup mustard seed powder
  • 1/4 cup baking soda
  • Peppermint essential oil


  1. Pour salt into a plastic zip bag (or sealing food storage bag).
  2. Add several drops of peppermint essential oil.
  3. Close bag immediately and shake well to mix scent thoroughly.
  4. Mix separately, mustard seed powder and baking soda.
  5. Add powders to salt, close bag and shake well.
  6. Package this in a jar or cellophane bag.

Include the following instructions:

To Use: In the evening, add up to 1/4 cup bath salts to hot bath water. Soak for 20 minutes. Rinse well in cool to warm water. Go to sleep relaxed and wake up refreshed.

For Gift Giving...

If desired, include this mix in a basket with a candle and some soothing tea bags such as mint and chamomile.

Hint... Try giving this gift to a tired parent along with a baby sitting coupon!

Also, this mixture makes a great foot soak. If you know someone who is on their feet often, such as a nurse... this bath powder could be the perfect gift!

Warning: Peppermint essential oil should not be used by pregnant or lactating women. Always check with your doctor before using herbs and essential oils if you are pregnant, lactating or if you have an illness of any kind.
