Sultry Salts for a Hot Bath

Sultry Salts for a Hot Bath

Why buy commercial bath salts when they so many are made with artificial dyes and they are so jacked up in price? With access to bulk coarse sea salts, you can make a big container of bath salts for a wee fraction of the cost of what you would find at a natural foods store and without any crummy artificial ingredients. The cherry on top is you can customize your scent as you like. While essential oils will cost a bit, you will get many uses out of them. Scent preferences are so unique to us -- feel free to modify to your tastes.

Sea salts and Epsom salts relaxes your muscles; baking soda soothes the skin. (Those with very sensitive skin might want to leave out the baking soda; it will still be a perfect blend without it.) Rosemary and grapefruit essential oils uplift the spirit; seductive vetiver balances this with its grounding, stabilizing qualities. Together, they combine for a sexy, relaxing but still uplifting bath blend.

Sultry Salts for a Hot Bath

1 cup coarse sea salts
1 cup Epsom salts
cup baking soda (optional)
5 drops rosemary essential oil
7 drops grapefruit essential oil
5 drops vetiver essential oil

Combine all the ingredients in a large food processor and cycle until at desired texture. (It will be loud at first!) Whether you like a crumbly or smooth texture is up to you as long as the oils are distributed. Adjust the scent as you like, remembering that it will grow stronger over time. Store in a covered container and through handfuls in each bath as it fills.
