Bath salts are a good pampering treat when bathing. While there are a lot of good bath salts available in the market, others can be chemically-treated or are way too expensive. Choosing the wrong chemically treated bath salts can decrease the therapeutic effects, so some people like to make them from home instead.
You can easily make bath salt at home and even make them scented or add pretty colors. Here are some basic recipes in making your own personal bath salt.
Basic Bath Salt
- For one medium-size jar of bath salt, combine one part Epsom salt to two parts of sea salt. This is all you need to do to make your own bath salts. But if you want a scented bath salt, you can add at least 10 drops of aromatic oil into the mixture and thoroughly mix it. You can increase the strength of the scent by adding at least five drops more or be conservative and decrease it by 5 for a lighter scent.
Easy Bath Salt recipe
- You can also make a bath product such as bath salts using ingredients you can find at your kitchen. Combine equal parts of rock salt or kosher salt, baking soda and Epsom salt. Mix them thoroughly and store in a jar. This recipe is fast and simple enough for personal use. Add a minimum of 5 drops of aromatic essential oils if you want it to be scented.
Herbal Salt Baths
- Instead of ready-made scents, you can infuse salt with fresh herbs and get its full health and aromatic effect. In a jar, add a one inch layer of salt, and then add chopped herbs such as rosemary or lavender. Next, put another inch of salt, and then add another layer of chopped herbs. Keep repeating this process until the jar gets full. Put a piece of plastic on top and seal. After about two weeks, the salt will have absorbed all the aromatic and health goodness of the herbs. This is as natural and fresh as it can be. You will definitely get hooked to bathing after using this bath salt recipe.
You can also experiment and give other non-traditional bath salt scents a try. You can use lemon, cinnamon, vanilla or mint for your next bath salt recipe. A color additive can make your bath salts more attractive but at times, it is better to avoid them as artificial colors can be a cause of allergies for some people. Besides, most people prefer natural ingredients in their bath salts.
You can make these as a hobby or when you get to learn the ropes and become better at making the perfect bath salts, you can even make this a profitable business. Make your bath salt more appealing by packaging properly and attractively. You can use sticker labels where you can put relaxing images and the natural ingredients that you used.
Brand your products by adding your name or company name to the label. You can put ribbons around the jar when giving it as a gift or you can even add a hang tag. Your bath salts will not just be practical, but the accessories and packaging can add to an even more beautiful product.
