Today I’m excited to share three of my favorite DIY baths with you, in partnership with Wamsutta Ultra Soft Micro Cotton Bath Towels. These bath linens are luxurious but also a greener, safer choice. They’re produced in an eco-friendly facility using green energy which harnesses the power of the sun and the wind. They’re also Class A certified under OEKO-TEX 100, meaning they’re safe for baby’s skin too.
Pretty cool right? Selfishly I love them because the towels are SO soft – and stay that way even after many washes. They’re actually constructed to “bloom” in the wash so they get softer and fluffier – NOT hard and scratchy. The colors (all fifty of them!) last longer, too.
As an avid lover of baths (I take at least 3 or 4 baths a week), soft towels are a must for afterward! I like a big fluffy towel as oftentimes I get out of the bath, into a towel, and find myself reading for a while in bed. (That is my favorite secret weekend behavior. Yoga, a bath, and then getting back into bed in my towel!!!!) I’ve also been trying to do more DIY baths as the store bought ones can get a little pricy.
Let’s get into the baths, shall we!?
The Detox Bath
(This DIY bath was created by Sonya Dakar; Gwyneth Paltrow is a fan – or at least she was until she created her own bath soaks!)
- One cup dead sea salts
- One cup baking soda
- 12 drops lavender or neroli essential oil
- A few pinches of fresh or dried ginger.
The Sore Muscles Soak
- 1/2 cup sea salt
- 1/2 cup baking powder (be sure it’s aluminum-free!)
- 1/4 cup Epsom Salts
- 1/4 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
- 12 drops Eucalyptus oil (you can use something else but I looove Eucalyptus after the gym.
Soak in the tub for 20 minutes, in the hottest water you can stand.
The Relaxing One.
- One Cup Epsom Salts
- 3 Chamomile Tea Bags
- 12 drops lavender essential oil
Fill the tub with warm water and add everything. Let the tea bags steep for 5 minutes or so, discard, and soak for twenty minutes!

Oh now I really want a pamper night!

There is nothing better right!?
Unfortunately, I don’t have a bathtub… But those towels seem amazing, I feel like towels are something that’s always needed because the old ones get ruined or stained or something happens and we end up throwing one away often so I’m definitely gonna look into those.
Thanks, Marta!!! They’re so soft.
I am an avid bath taker too, but I typically stick to bubble bath (the children’s mighty bubble to be exact-it’s so bubbly!). I’m excited to branch out and try these recipes! And those towels! They sound so amazing!
Thank you for sharing!
Thank you so much Allie!
So I’ve been debating new towels (ours are mix-matched) and have seen better days and this is the type of review I needed, especially the way they’re made! my college experience can be summed up by me taking a shower, getting into bed in a towel and my roommate finding me asleep…oops
Thanks for taking into consideration such important things for partnership posts, Grace.
I think you’ll really love these!!!!!
And that is my favorite thing to do except no roommate besides Tyrion to find me! 😉
I have no idea how long I’ve been using my bath towel… I think I need to get new ones now, and you’re tempting me with these towels you’re talking about! They do sound super nice! 😀

Sounds like it’s time for an upgrade!!!!
I must try those towels! I love taking baths! It’s such a treat!
it really is just THE BEST!!!! thanks Jae!
I can’t wait to take a steaming hot bath in three months after I have my baby girl. Baths are the number one thing I’ve missed while being pregnant! Can’t wait to try some of your DIY baths and those towels sound heavenly!
Oh my gosh I bet!!! My sister felt the same way.
Hi, are the towels pictured here the off white color? I’ve been thinking about getting lighter colored towels (my current sets are both navy) but I think they may end up looking not-quite-right in my unfortunate rental bathroom. I was worried an ivory or off-white might look dingy, but I like how it looks here (if it is a light, non-white!). Thanks, Grace; love your blog! 🙂
Yes, they are the cream color!!!
