Citrus-Rose Bath Salts

Are you looking for a beautiful, functional, aromatic, easy-to-make gift for someone who is difficult to buy for? These citrus-rose bath salts are all those things and so much more! They are so simple to make yet a complete luxury experience! Sounds like a pretty good sales pitch!

Baths are very therapeutic and health-promoting. They help pull toxins out of your body and send nutrients like magnesium (which most people are deficient in), herbs or essential oils into your pores. This is great for boosting the immune system, calming frazzled nerves and healing through aromatherapy. Make sure you have a shower filter to take the chlorine out of your water or you’ll be sending *that* straight to your organs. You can find good filters and water softeners here:

    Looks great and probably also smells great … but i don’t get to gift such … my sisters are against whatever floats in their water .. salt is good because it will melt, but the petals and other herb bits won’t

    Great recipe, thanks. I got through the whole process of making these tonight, and then looked at the back of the Morton’s Sea Salt that I bought and noticed in the sea salt ingredients that it had yellow prussiate of soda added to it. Had no idea what it was, so I googled it and it is a form of cyanide. The material safety sheet on this additive states that it should not be mixed with any acid as cyanide gas could form. So I obviously threw out what I made as I added orange oil and orange rind (both very acidic) to the bath salts. I just though I would warn others not to use this Morton Sea Salt or any others that have the anticaking agent (yellow prussiate of soda) ingredient in it. Now to find Sea Salt without any additives.
