|Scented Bath Salts ~ All Natural|
You simply will not believe how easy this is to make! It literally only took me a couple of minutes and I was ready for my "relaxing aromatherapy bath". You can make a batch as big or small as you want. You can experiment with the essential oils of your choice, make several small batches with different scents. I plan on making several different batches / scents of this and making a few "spa-care" packages for my lady friends :)
Scented Bath Salts
1 1/2 Cup Espom Salt
1 Tsp Grape Seed oil (or Jojoba, olive or coconut oil all work)
10 Drops Orange Essential oil
10 Drops Lavender Essential oil
*Food coloring if you prefer to add color - I did not, but it would be a nice touch to color up some assorted tubes for gifts or to layer in a mason jar (like sand art)
Repurposed containers or jars with air tight lids for storage
Measure the salt into your mixing container.
Add your oil & essential oils. Mix with a spoon and you are done!
I chose the lavender and orange for this batch. I find it relaxing & refreshing at the same time. You can mix it up on the oils to serve the mood you are in.
Now this is a change we can all live with!
peppermint and orange are invigorating, lavender is relaxing, eucalyptus is great for head colds, tea tree oil is good for the respiratory & sinuses, Rose oil is wonderful and calming, clove and lemon mixed together are both antibacterial & antifungul (as most essential oils are) it is a wonderful smell combination.
The cost to make this was about 1.00! IMAGINE about a 10th of what it would cost you to buy it in the store (chocked full of chemicals) you are using all natural & pure ingredients, No chemicals! I use my essential oils constantly in my daily cleaning, refreshing, laundering & personal hygiene routine and the small containers last me quite a while.
