HOW TO MAKE BATH SALTS
A great all-purpose bath salt is made with 2 parts Epsom salt, 2 parts kosher salt and 1 part baking soda. The salts contain minerals that are absorbed through the skin to help ease muscle soreness and relieve tension. The baking soda helps prevent the bath from being too irritating to the skin.
Adding essential oils to bath salts helps boost the healing power, and depending on the blend, they will help with relaxation, better sleep, clearing the mind, rejuvenation and even relief for stuffy noses
