Epsom Salts Recipes
Tanya Said:Making bath salts that won't stick together?
We Answered:i've always made them using only salt, essential oils and food colouring. they have a longer shelf life and are more natural that way :)
Rick Said:A home made lawn fertilizer recipe calls for ammonia, antiseptic mouthwash, liquid dishsoap, epsom salts and?
We Answered:the mouthwash is a multipurpose antibacterial
the beer provides carbohydrates which give the plants a ready energy source, yeast/malt gives a base for microbial growth which encourages root health,
also it does have a small amount of alcohol
which acts as to inhibit soft bodied pests

Jeff Said:Epsom Salts and your skin-does bathing with Epsom salts dry your skin?
We Answered:Both the skin and hair need a acidic pH, Epsom salts and all salts are alkaline, though they do absorb toxins and oils. Bathing in salts is great, plain salt (not iodized) will work just as well, for those that can't handle sulfates/sulfites.
To balance the pH of the hair and skin bath in aged apple cider vinegar (1-2 quarts per tub full), soak for 1/2 - 1 hour or longer if possible. The smell only lasts about 1/2 hour after you get out. It also removes toxins, radiation from X-rays, etc. and balancing the pH will handle oily skin and hair longer than salt. I had oily hair until I did an apple cider bath, than I could use shampoo for normal hair, that never happened with bath salts.
If I do a Salt bath now I always do a vinegar bath within a week after to balance the pH. Both are great and help cleanse the body.
Ricardo Said:Any good "recipes" for Lavender infused bath salts?
We Answered:Yield: 1 bath
Prep Time: 3 minutes
Price Category: 1
Difficulty Level: 1
Shelf Life: Indefinite
1 cup coarse sea salt
1 handful crushed dried thyme
2 drops lavender essential oil
1 drop lemon essential oil
Pour salt into a bowl. Sprinkle over it the crushed dried time and stir. Add the drops of essential oils, one at a time, stirring well after each addition.
Mix well - this is important to ensure that the scent is evenly spread.
Store the salts in a wooden box, glass jar or small hessian sack. (Use glass if you plan to store it a long time -- glass will ensure that the container does not absorb the essential oils.) Sprinkle the salts into a warm bath for a heavenly scent which is both relaxing and invigorating. Enjoy!! =)
