Bath Salts with Essential Oils

Bath Salts with Essential Oils

Makes approximately 500g of Bath Salts

What you need:
* 480g of Sea Salts [Fine or coarse, or a mixture of the two]
* 20g Bicarbonate of Soda [not baking soda, it’s different]
* 4ml of your chosen essential oil [See further down for a rough guide]
* A tablespoon of dried flowers/petals/herbs to match the oil scent
* A couple of drops of food colouring [just enough to tint the salts lightly]
* An airtight glass jar

– Mix the salts and Bicarbonate of Soda in a large bowl until well blended.
– Add the colouring [just a tiny bit] and mix in until all the salts are evenly coloured to a pastel shade.
– Drip the essential oil evenly over the surface of the salts and mix thoroughly. You may find that the colour will deepen.
– Leave the salts in the bowl overnight so that the fragrance can be absorbed.
– The next day, once the salts have dried, stir again until they are free-flowing, then add your herbs/petals.
– Spoon into a large airtight jar. For a creative twist, fill the jar with alternating layers of salts and petals.

That’s it! Easy peasy.

Moon Alert

There are no restrictions to shopping or important decisions today. The Moon is in Gemini.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Today you are upbeat and energetic, especially mentally. (Clever you.) You’re full of ideas and you want others to listen to them. However, you might come on a bit strong. Nevertheless, your take on things will be positive and enthusiastic, especially about travel, social media and education.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You will work hard to boost your earnings today because this is important to you. (Today you’re keeping score.) Your wealth or earnings seem to be a measure of your work. Something going on behind the scenes, possibly assistance from a group, might help you.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Today the Moon is in your sign lined up with fiery Mars, which makes you fast talking, fast acting, and slightly irritable with anyone who isn’t moving as fast as you can. Hey, cut people some slack. Actually, this is an excellent day to interact with groups, conferences and organizations.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You feel agitated about something going on behind the scenes today. This is why you might be impatient with others. I once heard a wise teacher say, “Negativity is wanting things to be different from the way they are.” Why not trying to switch gears? Appreciate what works.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You’re effective (and possibly, a bit bossy) dealing with groups of people today, or interacting with a friend. Quite likely, you are carried away with your own enthusiasm about something because you want others to climb on board. You’re thinking big! (This might involve the media or travel.)

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

People notice you today, because you’re pumped and raring to go! Actually, your strong ambitious energy might be a tad aggressive when viewed by a boss or someone in authority. (Might they feel threatened?) Keep this in mind. Nevertheless, today you can effectively influence groups. Use this wisely.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You have a strong urge to travel or do something different today because you’re hungry for a change of scenery. You’re restless. You need the thrill of doing something exciting. You want adventure! (“Shall we dance?”) Guard against being so impulsive that you might have later regrets. Oops.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You are prepared to fight for your rights today, especially in discussions about shared property, inheritances, taxes, debt or insurance issues. (All that red-tape stuff.) You feel strongly about getting your fair share of something, which is why you’re ready to speak up. Oh yeah.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Be patient with close friends and partners today because you might meet someone who is aggressive. If you’re lucky, they’re just enthusiastic. If you’re not so lucky, they’re definitely in your face. Take a breath and scope out the situation until you know what’s going on. Get the full picture.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You’re keen to work today! In fact, you might feel driven. It’s important to know that you will probably accomplish more by cooperating with others and engineering a group effort. “More hands make light work.”

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is a playful, romantic, passionate day! That’s why you will go out of your way to have fun. It’s also a strong day for sports and competitive athletics because you want to win. (You certainly don’t want to lose.) Enlist the help of others, if you can.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You want to do things a certain way today, especially at home or with your family. This is why you might be coming on a bit strong. Let’s face it, you’ve got an agenda, and you want the cooperation of others to meet your requirements and wishes. Good luck!

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor John Thaw (1942-2002) shares your birthday today. You are passionate about everything you do, sometimes even reckless and impulsive. (But you take responsibility for your actions.) You are determined and not daunted by challenges. This year is slower paced that time to rejuvenate yourself. Concentrate on your post relationships and your needs and what brings you happiness.

Prayers or Light a Candle Please

My older daughter’s younger son, Chris, leaves today for Army basic training. He will be regular Army. Please join me in asking for him to be safe and if possible stay on USA soil during his your of duty.

Once he is done with basic he will learn how to drive and operate heavy construction machines(?) earth movers and stuff.

I am a proud but concerned grandma. He is a strong empath but asked me to bind his ability while he is serving in case he goes somewhere where fighting is going on. He was afraid his ability might keep him from helping his brother’s in arms if faced with a fire fight.
