How to Make Therapeutic Bath Salts!


How to Make Therapeutic Bath Salts!

Do you ever have the flu, feel anxious, or want to relax after a stressful day? I know that I’ve felt all of these emotions this year alone! One way to help is by using therapeutic bath salts, but they can be so expensive at the store! So, why not make your own? Here is the basic recipe that you’ll need to make this DIY:

  • 3 cups Epsom Salts
  • 1/2 cup Dead Sea and/or pink Himalayan
  • 1/2 cup herbs and flowers (added mostly for aesthetic purposes)
  • 20 drops of organic, therapeutic grade essential oils
