Orange & Green Tea Bath Salt Soak
This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my DISCLOSURE for more info.
My go-to essential oils are usually the citrus ones.
Whenever I need a little pick me up, they always seem to do the trick. Aromatherapy is the best!
Orange is an extremely popular, citrus essential oil, having many kinds available.
There is sweet orange, orange blossom, bitter orange, blood orange, and I’m sure there are other ones I haven’t listed.
For this recipe, I am using the blood orange essential oil. It has an intense zesty yet citrusy scent, perfect for relaxing in a nice warm bath.
If you’re looking for a therapeutic experience, this is your soak! Along with citrus, I added dried green tea leaves.
Green tea is a natural antioxidant and has antibacterial properties which your skin will love.
Plus it’s natural, an added bonus!
This is a super easy recipe to make. Just simply mix the salts, herbs, and blood orange essential oil. Add a little orange soap colorant if you please and you’ll be all set to go.
If you’ve had a long day and need an aromatherapy energizer, soak in a bath with nature right at your fingertips. You know what I’ll be doing tonight!

In a bowl mix the dead sea salt and Epsom salt.
Add 5 drops of orange soap colorant. If you don’t have orange, you can use 2 drops of red and 2 drops of yellow color.
Mix thoroughly. At first, the color will appear in globs. Using a spoon smash those globs around and keep mixing. Eventually, the color will even out.
Add the green tea packets. I used about one in a half. Mix.
Add 10 drops blood orange essential oil. AND mix again.
Simple! All you have to do is mix.
I like to use a natural colorant when making my skincare products due to the fact that they won’t dye our skin. I’ve heard of others using regular food coloring and never having any problems. That’s totally fine.
Whatever your heart desires!
Depending on how large your bathtub is, use 1-2 tablespoons of the bath salt mixture into one bath. This recipe should last you up to 5-6 baths.
