Grapefruit Bath Soak DIY Recipe

We just did a Grapefruit recipe, didn’t we? We did actually! But that’s ok! That was a summer lotion. It’s fall sports season, baby, which means it’s soakin’ time! This grapefruit bath soak will make those joints and sore muscles feel better in no time! 

Grapefruit essential oil is a welcomed change from the traditional relaxation fragrances and is perfect for summer. Your body may need to relax once the kids are in bed, but your mind will benefit from the invigorating boost of grapefruit giving you just enough energy to finish the day.


2 cups Epsom Salt (or 1 cup Epsom and 1 cup Dead Sea Salt)

1 TBS Pink Grapefruit Essential Oil

Red Mica Powder

Airtight Jar or Container


In a large bowl, combine the salt and the essential oil.

Stir well until all of the essential oil has been evenly distributed throughout the salt.

The essential oil will add a subtle orange color to the mixture. You can stop here and package up the bath soak, or you can add a little mica powder for extra color.

I used a tiny amount of red mica powder and mixed the salt thoroughly until it was a pretty pink- perfect for Pink Grapefruit!


Carefully transfer the salt mixture into your container. If you choose one with a tight neck like I did, use a kitchen funnel for easier filling.

Add a small amount to warm running bath water and enjoy! Soak away the stress of the day and relax your sore muscles for 20-30 minutes. You’ll feel revived in no time!

  1. I’ve never seen a recipe using just 2 cups of dry ingredients using this much of a pure EO. Tablespoon?? Was this a mistake or meant to be a smaller measurement. Or using a weaker fragrance Oil?

    1. If stored and used in a cool dry place (away from moisture/water), it can last around 6 months; if you believe it will be exposed to water/moisture (for example, during use in the shower) it would be best to add a preservative such as Optiphen Plus or Liquid Germal Plus for safety. A preservative can possibly extend the shelf life by 1 year.
