DIY Bath Salts
Fragrance – optional
large tub or pot [plastic or stainless steel]
large mixing spoon
Pour Epsom Salt, baking soda, and sea salt into large tub.
Mix all dry ingredients thoroughly. Proportions are all a matter of taste. Each ingredient lends it's own special texture and qualities to the finished bath salts. Each dry ingredient could be used alone as suitable bath salts--baking soda is an excellent water softener; epsom salts are great for soothing sore muscles. You could try one third of each type of salt or half epsom and sea salt with a small amount of baking soda for a more soothing relaxing combination.
I love baths and bath salts are a very important aspect of my bathing ritual so I make them up in large batches. I also sell them for fund raising
Scent as desired using essentials oils to keep it natural. or synthetic fragrances of suitable grade, meaning for cosmetic use.
Coloring - optional add if desired using food coloring. Be aware a small drop goes a long long way. Tah Dah! Bath Salts.
