How do you make an energizing bath?
Most of us think bath salts are relaxing and calming, but a bath soak can be energizing too! To make an energizing bath, all you need is the right essential oils to fight fatigue.
This blend of eucalyptus and rosemary is just the right combination to uplift your mood and boost energy. And each comes with additional benefits.
Eucalyptus Bath Salts Benefits:
What do eucalyptus bath salts do? This trending plant is not only beautiful as fresh and dried stalks, but it’s also beneficial as an essential oil. According to Young Living, Eucalyptus Globulus essential oil contains eucalyptol, which creates a refreshing breathing experience when inhaled and provides an invigorating sensation on the skin when applied topically. And I agree entirely!
The strong scent of eucalyptus alone is energizing, but when added to a warm bath, it’s incredible. It helps me decompress, lift stress, and feel refreshed.

Rosemary Bath Benefits:
I love rosemary for its robust, herbal aroma. Many agree it’s great to diffuse rosemary essential oil in a study or workspace. I have an abundance of fresh rosemary growing in my garden just steps from the front door. We love to cook with it, but it also makes a great ingredient in bath salts.
This herb and essential oil can give our skin a boost of antioxidants and easily diffuses into the steam of a warm bath, helping us feel more alert and focused.
Combine these powerhouses for an invigorating aromatic experience with an herbal kick!

Bath Salt Frequently Asked Questions:
Homemade bath salts are quite easy to make, but a few questions frequently come up when I talk about making bath salts.

- Homemade bath salts with essential oils last 12 to 24 months when stored in an airtight container away from heat and moisture.
Layered Rosemary and Eucalyptus Bath Salts Recipe to Rejuvenate and Energize
You’ll find this rosemary and eucalyptus bath salts recipe made with natural ingredients is a refreshing way to clear the mind and restore the body. And you can conveniently store the bath salts in a sealed jar right next to the bathtub or on your bath tray.
Bath Salt Ingredients
1 airtight 8-ounce jar
4 ounces dead sea salt
6 ounces mineral salt
1 teaspoon dried rosemary leaves
20 drops eucalyptus essential oil
10 drops rosemary essential oil
⅛ teaspoon spirulina powder (optional for color)
How to Make Bath Salts:
If you’re using fresh rosemary from your garden, make sure it is free from dew. Then strip the leaves from the rosemary stalks and discard the stems.
In a small bowl, combine four ounces of dead sea salt with an ⅛ teaspoon of green spirulina powder to naturally color a portion of the bath salts.
Add 10 drops of rosemary essential oil to the green dead salt mixture, stir to blend, and set aside.
In a separate small bowl, combine six ounces of mineral salt with 20 drops of eucalyptus essential oil, stir into the salts and set aside.
Now begin layering the ingredients in an airtight 8-ounce jar. First, add a layer of the white eucalyptus mineral salts, then add a layer of the green rosemary dead sea salts.
Next, sprinkle a layer of dried rosemary leaves, then repeat the layers—white salts + green salts + rosemary- until the jar is filled.
Whether the holidays are approaching or you need a beautiful and affordable gift for a friend, these layered bath salts offer a gift of pampering and self care. And it only takes a few minutes to make this rosemary and eucalyptus bath salts recipe!
