Get your skin glowing and summertime ready with this super simple bath salts recipe. Make it for yourself or package it in adorable little test tubes decorated with a ribbon or antique button for someone who deserves a little TLC. (Yields about 2 cups.)
- 1/4 cup Epsom Salts
- 1/4 cup Dead Sea Salt
- 1/4 cup Himalayan Sea Salt
- Dried herbs
- 10 drops lemon essential oil
- Large mixing bowl
- Test tubes with cork stoppers
- Green twine
- Antique decorations
Mix all the of the salts in the large mixing bowl and blend thoroughly. Sprinkle the dried herbs into the salts. Add 10 drops of lemon essential oil to the mixture and stir thoroughly to disperse the scent throughout the salt and herbs.
Use the funnel to fill the test tubes with the salt mixture. Larger flowers might need to be coaxed into the tube with the straw or skewer. Insert the cork stopper, wrap the test tube with twine, and finish with an antique button or decoration.
