Bath salts and soaks are often part of a spa experience that brings relief to aching muscles. You can bring that experience home with homemade salts to add to your bathtub. Mix in your favorite fragrance oil for a little aromatherapy touch. Scoop the salts into a jar, place it in a basket with some votive candles and a bath sponge or loofah, and you have a personalized gift as well.
Things You'll Need
- 4 cups Epsom salts
- 2 cups sea salt
- 6 tbsp. glycerins (optional)
- Fragrance oil
Mix the salts together thoroughly.
Stir in the glycerin, distributing it evenly. Using your hands makes this easier.
Add the fragrance oil, two to three drops at a time, until you are satisfied with the intensity of the scent.
Pour about 1/2 cup of the mixed salts under the faucet as you draw a warm bath.
Store extra salts in an airtight, non-metallic container.
