Bath Salts are a great DIY gift to make for the holidays. Not only are you giving a handcrafted gift but you are giving something that will allow the recipient to take some time for themselves, unwind and relax their body and spirit. You can also gift some bath salts to yourself because I am sure you can use some unwind and relax time too ;)
For this recipe you will need:
3 1/2 TBS Salt - I like to use a combination of Sea Salt, Epsom Salt and Pink Himalayan Salt as they all have a little different muscle relaxing properties but if you wanted to just go with one salt, I would go with Epsom Salt.
1 -2 Drop Nutmeg Essential Oil (all of these essential oils can be subbed out if you prefer a different scent. Lavender, Eucalyptus and Chamomile would all be great in bath salts)
First mix your Sweet Almond Oil & Natrasorb(or tapioca starch if you can't find Natrasorb powder) in a small container until you reach a milk like consistency. The powder/starch is optional but it does help the salts and oils disperse more evenly in the bath water so it is a nice addition to your bath salts.
Next add in your Salts and your Essential Oils and stir to combine.
Add the salt mixture to your test tube or jar along with a tag letting the recipient know what's in the container and how to use them(Here's the link to a tag I created that you can use if you prefer not to create your own ❤️ ) and that's all there is to it. Easy Peasy to make, thoughtful and affordable which is a great combo in a gift if you ask me!
