Eucalyptus Spearmint is one of my favorite blends at Bath & Body Works. But this weekend I whipped out my essential oils and made my own Eucalyptus Spearmint Bath Soak. Cheaper, no chemicals and it smells just as amazing!

Eucalyptus Spearmint is one of my favorite blends at Bath & Body Works. It’s part of their Aromatherapy line. My favorites are the Hand Soap and the Bath Soak. Bath & Body Works says this scent combination promotes stress relief. I love it because it’s is so fresh and clean.

This weekend I whipped out my essential oils and made my own Eucalyptus Spearmint Bath Soak. It’s was super cheap. I know exactly what’s in it and it smells just as amazing. So next time you’re at the mall, skip the $16 bottle of Bath Salts and try this instead!


  • 2 Cups of Salt (I prefer coarse sea salt but you can use mineral salt or epsom salt)
  • 1 Cup Baking Soda (optional for bubbling)
  • 8 drops of Spearmint Oil from Young Living (Here’s why)
  • 16 drops of Eucalyptus Radiate Oil from Young Living


  1. If you choose to use the baking soda, start by mixing the salt with the baking soda in a small bowl. Make sure you mix them thoroughly.
  2. Next add the oils. I like mine to have a strong smell. You could always start with half and add more if you like them stronger. Mix well.
  3. Store them in an airtight jar. I found these little bottles with corks at Hobby Lobby. You can use a mason jar or anything else you have.

To Use:

  • To use, add about 1/4 cup to a warm bath. Breathe deep and relax. Enjoy!
