homemade bath salts recipes

here are some ideas and ways of making your own bath salts..I am going to try this week some time for my daughter and me to make this as a fun enjoyable thing to do together.....results to follow this week,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

got this from the online web ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

You can use any combination of salts
•1 cup sea salt (fine or course can be found in your grocery store)
•1 cup Epsom salt
•1-2 tablespoons of baking soda
•1-2 tablespoons of cornstarch
•2 tsp glycerin (a lot of times can be found in your grocery store)
•10-12 drops of essential oil or Fragrance oil-the best way to determine how much is enough is if you can smell it without bending down to the bowl you are good.
•Food coloring added a drop at a time until desired color is reached

1.Mix all ingredients together.

2.Use 1 to 2 cups in the bath, soak and enjoy.,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

or my way is
mix a cup of epsom salt and sea salt and drops of oils till your choice of liking ..

homemade fabreeze

how to make your own fabreeze 1/8 cup of your favorite fabric softener 2table spoons of baking soda hot tap water to fill the bottle shake it to mix it all and boom you got your own fabreeze ENJOY
