Hey everyone, I have been making some bath salts and everyone I have given them to has loved them. They are so quick and simple to make.
What you will need: Equal amounts of epson salt and sea salt, and almond oil (not almond extract) and some sort of essential oil scent (my 2 favourites are vanilla and lavender. You can usually find these things at a pharmacy in the foot care isle, except for the essential oils you may need to hunt around for those. When I make them I mix a 2 kg bag of epson salt and a 2kg bag of sea salts and about 300ml of almond oil together next add essential oil to smell. I usually add about 20 drops for a batch totaling 4 kg. You can put them in glass jars but make make sure what ever you put them in stays sealed when you are not using them because the essential oil smell will dissapear if you keep them unsealed.  I think they make a great inexpensive gift!

ps. try adding dried flowers to the mix

this sounds fun... i've been wanting to make some bath salts for a while now. aren't essential oils a little pricey? i think that's what's been holding me back. also, do you know how to make that bath/body scrub sugar? i know they have that all over bath and body works and it sounds interesting. i like the idea of not being in severe pain if i have a tiny cut and accidentally put bath salts on it!

There is a difference between an essential oil and a fragerence. The fragerences tend to be more expensive. The thing is though that they last a long time. You will get a lot of batches of salts out of 1 bottle of oil! Smiley
