Homemade Bath Salts

Homemade Bath Salts  (Method found on Pinterest)

·                                 1 cup of Epsom Salts

·                                 1 cup of Sea Salt

·                                 3 tablespoons of dehydrated milk

·                                 Food Colouring

·                                 1/4 teaspoon of essential oil             

A note about the sea salt. I bought sea salt that was “double washed and naturally evaporated”. It has slightly larger crystals than traditional table salt and looks better presentation wise.

(1.) Mix the salts in a large bowl. 

2). Add approximately 8 – 10 drops of food colouring to the salts. If you want a darker colour, obviously just add more dye. Mix dye in with a whisk. 

(3). Add the powdered milk and use the whisk again to mix thoroughly. 

4). Add the essential oil to the mix. The smell is the strongest notable characteristic of the bath salts, so it is worth while using quality oil. I used an essential oil blend called harmony, which smells divine!

5). Spoon mixture into a dry jar.
