Make Your Own Bath Salts!

I love making my own body products!  It is so fun and you get to use it too!  Today, I made my own bath salts.  This is the first time I have ventured into the salts.  It was so easy!  Here is my recipe.

4 cups Epsom Salts
1/4 cup Baking Soda
2 Tsp Liquid Glycerin
Lavender Fragrance (or fragrance of your choice)
Food Coloring (optional)

Mix it all up and put into a jar.  Decorate and these make great Christmas or anytime gifts!  Inexpensive too! Use 1/3 to 1/2 cup in warm bath water.  This recipe makes a lot, so be sure to share!  You could use sea salt in place of the epsom salt, or a combination of the two.  I used what I had on hand.   I didn't have any red food coloring to make purple, so I had to settle for blue.  The glycerin is a great moisturizer and the baking soda makes your skin feel silky smooth.  I can't wait to try it and give some to friends!
