Do you have a favorite bath salt recipe?

There are SO many great sounding recipes on the internet for bath salts. I saw one tonight where someone adds powdered milk to her mix which sounds interesting. I was thinking about making some bath salts for my female cousins/inlaws. I like to do small gifts for everyone & thought these might be quick to make and EZ to ship.

I was just wondering if you would mind sharing your favorite recipe here. Thank you & happy holidays.

RE: Do you have a favorite bath salt recipe?

I don't use a recipe.
I like several things in mine and the rest is up to my mood, or what's in the ingredient cupboard.
I like sea salt and epsom salt. I also like to mix in a bit of collidial oatmeal. (Aveeno~but Walmart has a knock off that is much cheaper, and I use that.) Sometimes I'll grate in some "butter", or mix in a bit of good "skin" oil. Glycerin is a nice medium to mix in the scent and color. But if a person has trouble with yeast infections, then adding "sugar" to their bath is not a good idea. In that case just use a nice oil. Jojoba, rice bran, safflower. Stuff like that. Powdered milk is a nice touch, powdered goat milk too...Really the sky is the limit.

Just play, have fun, and let everyone enjoy the good stuff!

Thanks Terri. You've given me some good food for thought. Now it's just time for me to get creative. Happy holidays.
