Bath Salts

Sooth the Body and the Mind

You can make Bath Salts for your personal use or for gift giving. This art can be very enjoyable and rewarding. 

When you are making Bath Salts as gifts, you can get very creative with your packaging. Even though you can use something as simple as ziploc bags, but you will find a much better reaction if you use a little creativity. Using mason jars, sewn bags or baskets can create a wonderful effect. 

How to make Bath Salts

To make the actual Bath Salts is quite simple.

Start with 2 cups of epsom salt.
Grind your additives using a morar and pestal.
Stir the salts and additives in a stainless steel mixing bowl and blend until completely mixed.

To use the salts, pour 1 -2 cups into a bath of hot running water.

There is no limit to the types of salts that you can create other than the limits of your imagination. Here I will give you some basic recipes to get you started. More will be added in the future.
