>My wife and I would like to know how to make BATH SALTS. I bought her some for Valentines Day and she loved them. If any one has any recipes please send them. Do you use sea salt? What other additions?

My recipe is

1 cup rock salt
1 table spoon glycerine
scent (I use vanilla extract, out of the cabinet)

mix coloring, scent and salt together. Add glycerine and leave uncovered for one day.

>Rock salt? Like what you sprinkle on the driveway to melt ice? Or do you mean Epsom salts?

The type that you use to make ice cream. I live in the south and never had to salt a driveway.

Some recommend rock salt but a lot of rock salt is really dirty. Best to stick with Epson salt. Rock salt is cheaper which is why some recipe call for it and some people use it.

Quick and Dirty (no pun intended) way of making bath salts- Add essential oil to Epson Salts.

While running warm water in the tub, add ½ cup baking soda. After filling the tub, add a few drops of essential oil to the water, allowing it to float on top where you can most enjoy the fragrance. This is a most soothing bath. Easy too!
