  6. Epsom Salts

  7. Sea Salt

  8. zip-type bags to mix the salts and oils in

  9. Essential oil (not flavoring oils -- but "real"

  10. essential oil)

  11. Potpourri herbs of choice

  12. Food coloring

  13. Glycerin

  14. Pretty bottles

  15. 1 Rib bon to decorate bottles

  16. 2-to-

  17. 1 proportions Epsom Salt and sea salt, mix in a big

  18. pan. This is your bath salt "base". Measure about 1 cup of the salt

  19. mixture int o each zippy bag. Place about 4 drops of essential oil

  20. into the salt mixture in each bag. Zip the bag closed and mix the salt

  21. and oil.

  22. Tear potpourri herbs into tiny pieces and add to the bags (We used

  23. lemon verbena, rose petals, lavender. I don' t know why we tore them

  24. except that they did look nicer all mixed with the salts. And,

  25. obviously, we didn' t tear the lavender; because it's already tiny! I

  26. suppose that larger pieces could clog up your bath drain, too.) Zip

  27. the bag closed and mix until you are happy with the proportions.

  28. Here is where I stopped adding things ... but others added a drop or two of glycerin to the salts to soften your skin. However, we were

  29. told that anyone who might be using the salts with a Jacuzzi should

  30. not use glycerin in the mixture because it would be bad for the

  31. Jacuzzi. Others added the food coloring to the salts and they turned

  32. out pretty, too. I didn't care for the red colored salts, personally,

  33. because the color didn't come out quite pink or red either. The

  34. glycerin and the food coloring will also give the salts a "wet look."

  35. We were told to keep the salt mixture in the zippy bag and to mix it

  36. around once a day for 2 weeks. Then, we could pour it into the

  37. decorated bottles!
