Bath Salts are a great addition to a bath after a long day. Whether it be a stressful day or a physically demanding day. The great thing about this recipe is that most of the ingredients can be found at your local grocery.
Recipe for Bath Salts
2 cups coarse sea salt or Morton Salt Kosher Salt, 3 lbs
Scent (essential oils or fragrance oils)
Colorant (lakes preferred) if using mica add polysorbate 80
Mix it all together. Very simple. The colorant and scent are your preference. If making it for someone else remember you cannot smell the scent nearly as well as someone else. Don’t overdo it.
If using mica, it may stick to the sides of the tub if not used with polysorbate 80. The polysorbate allows oil based and water based to mix. Mica is oil based and will float on top of the water, leaving a ring.
Do not store in glass for an extended amount of time. A chemical reaction happens between the baking soda and essential oils that will expand. I takes awhile but I have heard of glass jars exploding so to be on the safe side store in plastic or use within a month.
