I have made home made bath salt jars ready for friends for gifts, they are easy to make and you can do them in all different scents the ones that i have done here are lavender in four different colours and layered into jars. It took four batches to make the four colours of salts to fill the jars, it cost approx £4 to make one jar,
A large glass jar (coffee jar)
1/4 cup of sea salt,
1 cup of epsom salts,
1/4 cup of baking soda,
1 tsp apricot oil,(optional)
10 drops of lavender oil,
2-4 drops of food colouring,
Combine the oils and food colouring, add the salts and baking soda and mix together very well,thats it just like that.
Alternative essential oils could be used as other oils such as grapeseed,sweet almond or extra virgin olive oil,
You can also add a tablespoon or two of finely ground regaluar oatmeal (not quick cooking) for silky skin softening.
