very basic recipe is to simply use 1 to 2 cups of sea salt in the bath. You could add essential oil if you had it or substitute Epsom salts.

Following is a more elaborate recipe for making bath salts. To this framework, you can get really creative with what you have on hand!


To make these, first mix all the dried material together in a container with a lid. Then add the essential oils, stir through the dry ingredients, put the lid on the container and shake, shake, shake! Allow this to settle for a few hours and then give it another shake. You want the essential oils to really be strong, as they will be greatly diluted in the bath.

Keep these out of reach of children.
