"He causeth the grass to grow for food, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth; And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengtheneth a man's heart." ~Psalm 104: 14-15

Bath Salts: 3 Easy Recipes, 3 Easy Steps

A simple basic recipe of bath salts involves a combination of salts, Epsom salts, and whichever other soothing, healing, calming, invigorating ingredients you'd like to add.  We were looking for gentle and versatile; here are the 3 recipes we chose for our June 27th-28th event.

Lavender-Rose Pink Bath Salts

  • 1 cup Pink Himalayan Salt
  • 1/2 cup Rock Sea Salt
  • 1 cup Epsom Salts
  • *Oils: almond oil carrier with lavender essential oil

Peppermint-Green Tea Bath Salts

  • 1/2 Pink Himalayan Salt
  • 1/2 cup Rock Sea Salt
  • 1 cup Epsom Salts
  • 1/8 - 1/2 cup dried Peppermint and Green Tea

Chamomile-Lavender Bath Salts

  • 3/4 cup Pink Himalayan Salt
  •  1/2 cup Rock Sea Salt
  • 1 - 1 1/2 cup Epsom Salts
  • 1/2 cup dried Chamomile and Lavender Flowers
  • optional: lavender oil*

Directions: 

 First scoop your salts into your container. Then add in any dried flowers or teas (optionally, you can put them in a fine cotton bag, if you don't want "floaties" in your bath). Finally, mix in any oils. There you have it; three easy recipes, with three easy steps! Enjoy your bath salts by placing ~1/2 -1 cup in under warm running water as tub fills.
