Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup sea salt
  • 2 cups baking soda
  • 1 cup epsom salts
  • 1 -2 tablespoon glycerin, per bath
  • essential oil, as desired

  1. Combine the sea salts, baking soda, and Epsom salts in a bowl.
  2. Stir to blend.
  3. Pour 1/4 cup or so into the bath while the tub is filling.
  4. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons glycerin to keep your skin from drying out (more for dry skin, less for oily skin) and essential oils of choice.

  6. Store any unused mixture in a glass jar with a screw top (I use mayonnaise jars).
