Awesome Bath SaltsFrom laurakaay 8 years ago
- 1 Cup sea salt (I prefer the pink, large crystals un ground) shopping list
- 3/4 Cup baking soda shopping list
- 1 Cup Epsom salts shopping list
- 4 TBS. olive oil (great for arthritis and hydrating the skin!) shopping list
- (you can also use safflower oil or avacado oil is great too!) shopping list
- 1/4 Cup crushed herbs (your preference) shopping list
- 12-15 drops essential oils (your preference) shopping list
- 5-6 drops body friendly food coloring shopping list
How to make it
- With either a mortar and pestle or coffee bean grinder, grind your herbs, don't over grind them as you don't want them to be dust, but have some texture to them!!! You might want to leave some of them whole for decoration though.
- In a large metal bowl combine ingredients one at a time and then gently stir to combine.
- Keep in airtight containers, enjoy two heaping scoops in warm bath water and enjoy!!! (I get cheap glass containers from places like World Market or craft stores.)
- For the herbs I try to use ones that will pair well with whatever essential oils I have selected. I'm fond of using dryied rosemary, chamomile and rose petals and then combining some geranium oil and oragne oil. I then use a color combo to have it looking either pink or orange.
- Another one I"m fond of is using dried mint or spirmint and then pairing it with chocolate oil and creating a green tint for it.
- Another great one is dried rosehips and sage and pair it with jasmine, geranium and tangerine oils and tinting it pink, yellow or light blue.
- The combinations are endless, you may want to read up on aromatherapy practices though as to not create something that will not agree with your own body chemistry.
