Making bath salts at home

The simplest method of making bath salts requires only three basic ingredients: salt, essential oil and baking soda. Epsom salt is available at chemist stores, essential oils at stores which sell aromatherapy products and baking soda at regular grocery stores. Take two cups Epsom salt, and blend in 2 1/2 teaspoons of baking soda. Add around 10-12 drops of the essential oilof your choice and store the mix in a glass jar.
If there’s time for more than just a speedy shower and you have the luxury of being able to soak in a bath tub, then bath oils and salts are just the thing. Addition of a few drops of an essential oil or a few teaspoonfuls of bath salts increases the relaxation effect of soaking in the hot bath water. Bath salts can easily be made at home [See Box 3] and as far asbath oils go, two or three essential oils can effortlessly be combinedtogether to get a completely new fragrance. In fact, even adding a cup of milk and a tablespoon of honey ora cup of oatmeal or 3-4 tablespoonfuls of rose water or lavender waterto your bath makes for an interesting change. Soaking in a bath tub with a few drops of essential oil or a few teaspoonfuls of bath salts or with the home ingredients mentioned above for around 15 minutes is all you need to completely relax those tense nerves and ease away your aches and pains.
Do remember to follow up the shower or hot water soak by patting dry the body with a fluffy bath towel and then applying your preferred moisturiser to get soft, smooth and silky skin.
All said and done, you too deserve some pampering and indulgence. And, if your routine bath can provide it to you, isn’t the time and effort spent well worth your while?
