I have found this great recipe about making our own bath salt. I have tried it and it is amazing.

Ingredients

With Sea Salt

  • One part epsom salts (also known as Magnesium Sulphate Heptahydrate)
  • 3 parts coarse sea salt
  • Lavender essential oil or any essential oil of your choice (1ml of essential oil for each 100g of the finished product)


With Baking Soda and Glycerin

  • 1 cup of epsom salt
  • 1 cup of baking soda (aka bicarbonate soda)
  • 2 tablespoons liquid glycerin
  • food coloring (although you may want to avoid the food coloring if you want a natural product)
  • essential oils (make sure the essential oils are of the highest therapeutic grade)

Steps

With Sea Salt

  1. Fill the container 3/4 full with coarse sea salt and then top it up with epsom salts. You can, of course, use the weighing scales to get the ratio right. Put the salts in your mixing bowl and carefully add your oil

2. Stir the mixture, ensuring the addition of the oil has not created lumps in the salt, and spoon the mixture into the jam jar

3.Leave to stand (with the lid on) for 24 hours so the fragrance will permeate the salts.

With Baking Soda and Glycerin

  • 1. Measure the epsom salt and baking soda. Mix well. Add glycerin, about four drops of food coloring and several drops of essential oil (such as peppermint, eucalyptus, or lemon — or all three). A little color and fragrance go a long way, and you can always add more but you can’t take it out once it’s there. Mix well to avoid lumps. Add more color or essential oil if desired.
