- 1 Cup of Epson salt
- 1 Cup of Baking Soda
- 2 Tablespoons of liquid glycerin
- Essential oils: lavender, peppermint, or lemon

Combine 1 cup of Epson salt, 1 cup of baking soda, 2 tablespoons of liquid glycerin, and several drops of your favorite essential oils. Mix well to avoid lumps.
Add more essential oils as needed. If you want to make colorful bath salt, add a few drops of food color to your mixture.
Add 1/2 cup of sea salt or table salt to your mixture, and allow it to dry overnight.
The next day, mix your bath salt up completely and scoop out the lumps. You can experience with your bath salt by adding dried herbs, or dried flowers to give it an extra kick.
For example, if you use peppermint oil for your bath salt mixture, add dried mint to it.
Transfer your mixture into decorative jar. You can also coordinate the bath salt colors to compliment your bathroom decor.
If you want to give it as present, just put on bow, and a small scoop. It is a great gift for co-workers and girlfriends, especially if you use lavender oil, since it will give a calming effect.
