Make your own soothing bath salts

bath salts
Making your own bath salts is simple.  With a few ingredients you can create a personal bath salt that will enrich your bath experience.
Combine 4-6 drops of your favorite essential oils in 2 Tablespoons of carrier oil (olive, almond, jojoba, etc) with  1 ounce of Epsom salt and 1 ounce of baking soda.  You can add sea or mineral salts as well as ground herbs or flower petals.    Mix well.  Add 1 to 3 Tablespoons to warm bath water and enjoy.
Some oils that make lovely baths are rose, geranium, lavender, eucalyptus.  I personally advise caution with using oils like peppermint, cinnamon, clove.  I find them too potent, even in small amounts for use in baths and have found that they actually create a somewhat burning effect.
