Make Your Own Bath Salts
We spent this past week in Colorado and it was wonderful! We had a booth at the New West Fest in Ft. Collins and shared our doTERRA products with the great people there.
We made bath salts to sell along with the oils and other products. I thought is would be a great gift to give someone, or it is just a simple inexpensive way to pamper yourself. We figured it cost around $.50 for every cup of bath salts.
Essential Oil Bath Salts
2 Cups Baking Soda
1 Cup Sea Salt
3 Cups Epsom Salt
(All above ingredients can be found at your local grocery store)
DoTerra Essential Oils
In a large mixing bowl add all of the above ingredients with the exception of the essential oil(s). Mix with your hand or a large spoon. After all of the ingredients are well mixed begin to add essential oils until the desired scent is achieved. The best way to determine if enough oils have been added is simply by using your own judgment. Bath salts should be strongly scented so fewer salts will be required for each bath, which will enable them to last longer. (Usually 12 drops of a high quality essential oil would be enough to scent the entire recipe above.)
Bath salts are inexpensive, easy and fun to make. But, they are also fun to use. Bath salts are perfect to make for you or to give as a gift to friends and family. After a long day at work, taking care of the family or running errands, there is nothing like a luxurious bath to wash away your cares and all of the stress deriving from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Bath salts contain soothing scents and comfort that will leave you feeling refreshed and full of life.
Important Note: Some bath products, which are found in the marketplace, may contain harsh ingredients that could irritate the skin. However, by purchasing bath salts ingredients carefully and making them yourself, you will have the peace of mind in knowing that your bath salts are perfectly safe to use.
