Herbal Bath Salts
Bath salts are a lovely way to relax and hydrate your skin in the winter. You can infuse the salts with mantras and prayers as you make by chanting or singing while you work. Do not use table salt when making bath salts. It is best to make bath salts with Epsom salt, sea salt, kosher salt or a combination of these. In general add between 1 tablespoon to ¼ cup of bath salts to a warm bath.
Yield: 4 cups
- 2 Cups Sea Salt
- 2 Cups Epsom Salt
- 1/4 Cup Fresh Rosmary or other herb of choice
- 3 Drops Rosemary Essential Oil
Place salts and rosemary in the pestle and mortar basin, grind the salts down and crush the rosemary to release the fresh oils. Reduce down to a fine powder. Place the combined salts in a brown paper bag to air dry for 2 weeks. Then mix with rosemary oil and pour into an airtight jar to store or give as a gift.
