This is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! I made it this afternoon when I really needed to unwind after a lengthy writing day at my desk. I felt so nice after a bath with these salts in the tub. I did have to substitute the epsom salts with table salt, but it worked fine. I will try this again once I get epsom salts from the nearest pharmacy. I also used these for my mom as a scrub for her feet. I added some of this to hot water in a tub and made her soak her feet in it. She loved it. She said her feet felt soft and silky smooth after this. I did use rose blended essential oil as my fragrance oil for this. Next time, I will try lemon oil, peppermint and eucalyptus. I used green food colour and it looked wonderful in these salts. Thank you for sharing this recipe. I have made some for gift giving also:) A definite keeper!
This is amazing! It's so quick and easy and easy to improvise on, a great gift for Christmas and birthdays, thanx for posting the recipe!
You saved my butt, I needed a quick easy craft for 6 kids today and thinking I got all the stuff I needed last night for soap I found out that I can't find my molds. I had little jars with lids downstairs and with a little almond oil (it was all I had) we made blue and green bath salts for Mother's day. Thanks so much
