Magnesium Bath Salts With Lavender – Dr. Ellen’s Recipe!

Magnesium may be one of the most important minerals in the body. It participates in over 300 enzymatic reactions – more than any other mineral. These reactions are critical to regulating things such as nerve impulses, muscular relaxation, and bone mineralization…to name a few. Magnesium can be taken orally but transdermally – through the skin – is a fantastic delivery mechanism for absorption directly to the cells. So I’m sharing my favorite magnesium bath salts with lavender recipe.

Lavender is very soothing and relaxing. It is an adaptogen – meaning it can assist the body in adapting to stress and imbalances. Lavender oil added to a warm bath is a wonderful way to unwind and prepare for a good night’s sleep.

Lavender Bath Salts Recipe With Magnesium


  • 1 Pint Mason Jar
  • Lavender Oil – Use therapeutic grade and very high quality – I use Young Living Essential Oils
  • Lavender sprigs (optional)
  • Magnesium Chloride Bath Flakes – I use Ancient Minerals
  • Ribbon and Gift Tags


  1. Fill the Mason jar with Magnesium Chloride Bath Flakes
  2. Drip 15 drops of Lavender oil in
  3. Cover and shake to mix in the oil
  4. Wrap it with a nice bow
  5. Write out a gift tag with instructions on it – I recommend that people use ¼-1/2 cup of the mix per bath and soak for 20 minutes

Give it as a gift to those super special people in your life and be sure to make extra for yourself.
