Gather the ingredients for your bath salts recipe, which should make enough for around 4 to 5 baths. It's easy to adjust the level by using the slider above if you would like more.
Pop your 300g of Dead Sea salts into a large bowl. Use glass, we don’t want to use plastic here, as the essential oil can corrode ordinary plastic. You can make use of metal, if that’s what you have to hand.
Now we can add our first oil, the sweet almond oil. I find sweet almond oil to be exceptionally nourishing, and it’s readily available for any good cosmetic ingredients supplier. Give it a good mix.
Now to add our essential oil! Don’t forget to mix it again. The orange essential oil is great for sucking out toxins and nourishing dry skin. It also helps to promote the growth of collagen, so can even make skin firmer and more youthful in appearance!
You’ll notice that the essential oil has added a bit of color to our salts, but for me it’s just not quite enough. So, I’ll add a few drops of orange soap dye just to make it more vibrant. You don’t have to do this, of course, and can keep it more natural by omitting this step. If you want it, just add a few drops at a time and then mix. Keep adding until it’s the right color.
Spoon your salts into a dry glass or PET plastic container.
Heres the finished bath salts, simply add two or three heaped spoonfuls of the salts to a warm bath. in these quantities you should get around 4 to 5 baths, but remeber to use it all within 3 months.
Be sure to use only glass or PET plastic containers for holding the salts.
