We are asked fairly often about recipes for Bath Salts and Scrubs.

We don't have any specific recipes for either a Bath Salt or Scrub.

We have a basic recipe as follows but scenting is very personal and many folks will make a special or "personally yours" type scent.

To make basic bath salt use :
1 1/2 cup dead sea salt
1 1/2 cup Epsom salt
(you can use any combination of various salts - there are many different types of sea salt - you can use any sea salt, dead or not!!)

You can also use our Basic Bath Salts or Bath Salt Kits to quickly make the basic salt mixture.

To this add 15-35 drops of essential oil - any single note or any synergy blend depending on what you would like to have it do - calming, relaxing, energizing, etc.

Add the essential oils to 1 tablespoon of Fractionated coconut oil or other carrier oil - Sweet Almond or Sunflower are commonly used.

Add this to the salts and mix completely. Place in a glass jar, seal and let "age" or "ripen" for a few days. Stirring or mixing every day.

Add 1/2 to 1 cup to running bath water, mix well to be sure salt has dissolved.

Caution: Do remember that oils added to a bathtub or shower can make surfaces slippery.

If you wish to make a Salt scrub

use the basic recipe from above, but add enough carrier oil to completely cover the salt in your jar. (Don't add more essential oils though as you don't need more of those.)

Again, you will scoop a little on your fingers and rub over the body parts you want to exfoliate.

Rinse off and wash with a mild cleanser to remove excess oil.

Another popular scrub and softer and gentler on you face is a Brown Sugar scrub.
Use 2 cups brown sugar, add 1 cup of carrier oil - a nice blend such as coconut and almond is very nice.
Then add your favorite mixture of essential oils. Use up to 90 drops of essential oils or blends.

A nice Citrus - lavender blend of oils to use
30 drops Grapefruit
30 drops Lavender
20 drops Lemon
10 drops Orange

Add to the brown sugar - oil mixture. Again let "age" for a few days before using.
Scoop a little on your fingers and gently massage your entire face. Gentle wash off any excess oil with a mild cleanser.

You can use any synergy blend or if you can't decide what you would like try just adding a single essential oil.
Lavender of course is commonly used but you may have another favorite you would like to use.

Hope this helps you make some wonderful Bath salts and scrubs. You will find there are many recipes on the internet and in books to make scrubs, etc. It's always fun to experiment until you find the one that you really like!!

Scrub for Normal skin
Lavender - 15 drops
Geranium - 8 drops
Rose - 4 drops

Add this to 1/3 of the basic brown sugar scrub recipe from above. Use as you would any scrub.
