A hygge bath salt recipe to soak in the coziness of a warm bath infused with essential oils and sprinkled with lavender has got to be one of the best hygge ideas!
I’m all about developing a hygge lifestyle with a sense of mindfulness and connection to the world on any ordinary day. What is hygge? Even though it has become a popular term, many of us still grasp for its meaning.
Hygge (pronounced “hue-gah”) is about being in the moment, letting go of the world around you, and centering yourself.
As I shared recently, in this article, a hygge lifestyle cultivates a cozy, comfortable quality that inspires feelings of happiness and contentment in your everyday life. Danish culture can take complete credit for this concept!
The Danes often call upon hygge to create a warm atmosphere in which to enjoy the good things in life. And what better way to do that than with a hygge bath salt recipe?
Taking a warm bath in mineral-rich salts to diffuse stress and tension with a grounding blend of essential oils sprinkled with dried lavender buds to lift your mindset has got to be one of the best hygge ideas! It’s the perfect do-it-yourself cozy retreat for the mind and body.
I mean, what could be more warm and cozy than a hygge bath?

What Makes A Good Bath Salt Recipe For Hygge?
Homemade bath salts are an ideal way to experience hygge when you need a little downtime or a reset. Because they not only help relieve the stress weighing on our minds but also help our bodies release stress.
What do I need to make my own bath salts? The Danes aren’t a culture that spends money on frivolous antidotes and instead finds enjoyment in the simplest things. This hygge bath salt recipe aligns with their thinking. It is simple to make and budget-friendly.
Start with a detoxifying, mineral-rich base of salt containing magnesium, zinc, selenium, and iron. I choose pink Himalayan Salt and Dead Sea Salt to draw out toxins, reduce muscle tension, and in turn, help to cleanse the body energetically.
When you combine mineral salts with essential oils and lavender flowers, you can relax, detox, and rejuvenate in one swoop!
