Its easier than you think! All you need is 1/4 cup Epsom salts and 1/4 cup sea, kosher, or rock salt stirred together in a glass bowl for one unscented bath soak Of course, you can mix up oodles of extra to place in glass jars with tight fitting lids.
Want scented bath salts instead of unscented? Simply stir in the amount of scent strength you desire of your favorite 'pure essential oil' and you're good to go! Oh, the scented salts store well too. My personal favorite assorted scents are eucalyptus (stimulating), jasmine (relaxing), lavender (calming), orange (refreshing), rose (relaxing) and ylang ylang (which is both relaxing and stimulating).

Being Jewish I would only use Kosher salt. Really, who would want to take a non-kosher bath anyway? - Aric
Wife loves this, thanks :)
This is a great idea! I'm always looking for ways to save on luxuries.
I wonder if vanilla would work.
Saves money thx for the idea. :)
Too bad I can't physically get in the tub any longer, sounds great.
Simple, but very useful and thrifty. Thanks, Deeli!
I love bath salts. Thanks Deeli!
