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

Method:
– 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.
Some good combinations:

Patchouli essential oil and dried Patchouli leaves – Money-drawing & Energising.
Carnation Essential oil and dried Carnation petals – Love, health and magickal energy.
Peppermint Essential oil and dried or fresh mint leaves – Purification & stimulation.
Geranium Essential oil and dried Rose petals/buds – Happiness & protection.
Lavender Essential oil and dried Lavender flowers – Calming & peaceful.
Neroli Essential oil – Joy & aphrodisiac.
