DIY: Bath Salts (Like, for your Bath)

Remember those lotion bars I whipped up last week? Well, they seemed a little lonely, so I decided to make some bath salt to go with them. This is a pretty complicated process, so pay close attention. Here’s what you’ll need:

IMG_3998Some plain old Epsom Salt (the giant bag in the photo cost under $3 at the Walmarts), a lidded container (any kind will do), the essential oil of your choice (I went with lavender again), and a nifty container to put it in when you’re done (I found this little lovely at the Salvation Army for 50¢).

Again, this is rocket surgery, so pay really close attention. Dump some Epsom Salt into the lidded container (but take the lid off, first), then add a dash of essential oil. Put the lid on and shake it.

IMG_4000How you choose to shake it is entirely up to you. I prefer to do mine with a little Gloria Gaynor in the background, but to each his or her own.

Then dump it into the pretty container of your choice and voila!

IMG_4004Now your lotion bars aren’t lonely anymore. I told you, people, that this was a complicated process, so after you’re done reward yourself by soaking in a little of your new creation. What “flavor” would you make, and more importantly, how will you choose to shake it? Inquiring minds want to know!
