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!

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

Wonderful bath after an extra long day. Next time I will increase the fragrance oil to 8 drops. This will make a great gift for my friends as well. Thank you so much for posting this. I really enjoyed it!

I used spice containers for my jars which hold 3/8 cup each. I had some lovely grapeseed oil based Body Shop products which worked really well. These salts come out in pastel form which looks really pretty.

This was wonderfully easy to make and not at all expensive. I made two batches, one with Bergamot and no coloring, the second with Peppermint and red food coloring. I layered the two in some cute little jars and gave them to co-workers for Christmas. They were cute and sure smelled great!

This was lovely. I especially liked the small quantity. I used peppermint oil and green colouring. I put everything in a plastic container and shook the hell out of it.. So easy, no mess, and a very relaxing bath. Thanks for the recipe.
