Depending on how much you are making at 1 time, whether it be several small gift jars like this or a large personal decorative jar for your bathroom. You will want to add about 1-2 cups of bath salts to your bath per use. 

Let’s take a bit closer look into the benefits of these essential oils for bath salt combinations and why using bath salts is a good idea for your wellness. 

Epsom salts provide the mineral magnesium to your bath water. By soaking your body in a warm bath with epsom talks you are helping to promote reduced stress of the body physically and mentally along with reducing pain and discomfort. 

Mediterranean Sea Salt, coarse is what I prefer to add to my bath. These sea salts are natural and come from the mediterranean sea. You can choose to use regular coarse sea salt but I prefer. Mediterranean Sea Salt, has many hydrating properties for skin health and although you may think of salt as drying out your skin, it actually does the opposite for you, helping you to retain moisture in your skin

Baking Soda you probably have this in your baking cabinet as it is a kitchen necessity for cooking and baking in many recipes. Baking soda is added to many toothpastes and has been known to help with odour, bacteria and sometimes it does support itchy skin conditions. You’ll also find baking soda in many detox bath salt recipes.
