The warm comforting glow of candle light is made even more beneficial when it is combined with Himalayan Pink Salt and Essential Oils. Himalayan Salt Candle Diffusers are easy to make, and a great way to infuse the air in your home with the benefits of aromatherapy and pink salt.
Start by mixing 1/2 cup of Himalayan Pink Salt with 5 – 10 drops of essential oil. We’ve included some suggested blends below. To find more aromatherapy blends, check aroma web.com, one of our favorite sources for aromatherapy recipes and essential oil information.
Pour the scented salt into a heat-safe vessel, such as a candle holder or mason jar. Nestle an unscented candle into the center of the salt, then light the wick. The warmth of the candle will activate the salt and help release the scents of essential oil into the air.
Why Himalayan Pink Salt? Besides being incredibly pretty, Himalayan Pink Salt is widely believed to aid in cleansing and detoxifying the air. It’s absorbent nature and rich mineral content make it an ideal base for salt candle diffusers. If you prefer, you can use a different type of salt, like Dead Sea Salt, Bolivian Pink Salt, or Sea Salt to make your salt candle diffuser – but this one if by far our favorite!
