There are all sorts of bath salts to make yourself, it all depends on what kinds of scents and additions you like.

I take a lot of baths.

I mean, a lot.

If I bought stock in Lush or Fortune Cookie Soap, I could probably make myself a fortune.

At some point along the way, I realized I could save a lot of money and get exactly what kind of skin care I wanted if I simply made my own bath products.

I haven't yet learned how to make a bath bomb, but here are some of my favorite, luxurious bath salts to make all by myself!

1. Basic Bath Salt

Basic Bath Salt

Martha Stewart has a great recipe for a basic bath salt.

This is how I got started: I wanted an easy to follow recipe that didn't use too many ingredients, just in case I messed up;2

and a foolproof recipe, so I wouldn't likely fudge it.

It worked like a charm, and it's one of the best bath salts to make when you want a great base for further experimentation!

Ingredients:

Coarse sea salt

Epsom salts

Baking soda

Essential oils

Directions:

In a large bowl, mix to combine: 6 parts coarse sea salt;

3 parts Epsom salts, to soothe tired muscles and reduce inflammation;

and 1 part baking soda, to soften waters and alleviate skin irritation.

Add a few drops of essential oils, and combine.2

Add a few drops of food coloring, until you achieve the desired shade.

If you intend to present the bath salts as gifts, be sure to store them in a stoppered and labeled container to keep out moisture.
