2 cups of Epsom Salts (Magnesium Sulphate) or Himalyan Pink Salt
2 tablespoons of baking soda
5 drops of Rosewood Essential Oil
5 drops of Chamomile Essential Oil
5 drops of Cedarwood Essential Oil
A nice jar where you store the bath salt in with a tight fitting lid.
How to make the Bath Salt:
1. Mix the salt and baking soda very well in a bowl.
2. Mix the Essential Oils in a small cup. You can fill a pipet and release the mixture evenly over the salt or carefully pour the mixture evenly over the salt.
3. Mix the salt and the essentials oils very well.
4. Let sit for over an hour before placing the bath salt in a jar and sealing it.
When you want to colour your bath salt, then use yellow and red to make a light brown, or you divide the mixture in two and add the yellow to one part and the red to the other part. Let it sit for over an hour.
After an hour start filling your jar layer for layer (first red, than yellow) until the jar is full then seal it.
When using colour’s it is best to use natural colourings like onion’s for brown; marigold for yellow/gold and beetroot for red. Otherwise, use food colourings, but be careful because you can’t be sure if the ingredients will harm you when it is absorbed through the skin.
The colourings can leave stains in some tubs or footbaths.
