Fair Friday-Pink Bath Salts

Today's natural product is really simple and fast to put together.  You will need the following;

1 lb of Himalayan Pink Sea Salt- coarse
10 drops of fragrance or essential oil of your choice.
Pretty jars for packaging

I bought the sea salt on Amazon. Just do a search. If you are a Prime member like me, you can get free shipping on many items.

I also get my essential oils on Amazon.  Fragrance oils I get from Bramble Berry. You can also get fragrance oils from Michael's or Hobby Lobby. Just make sure they are for cosmetic use.

Put a cup of the sea salts in a glass bowl.  Add the oil and mix. Package in jars. I used 2 ounce jars which is big enough for one bath. This size made great stocking stuffers.

The pink color is really pretty, no need to add color.  These would be great little Valentine Day gifts.

You can also just open the jar and set in a room to add a nice fragrance to an area.

I used orange and grapefruit essential oil for the ones I made for the holidays.  Sea salt condition the skin.. Citurs oils have an energing effect.

Essential oils also have health benefits. The benefit depends on the oil chosen. For instance lavender essential oil is known to have a calming and is great for a bath before sleep.

As I publish more Fair Friday articles I talk a bit more of the benefit of oils used in the products.
