DIY Eucalyptus & Vanilla Bath Salts

Feeling winter’s chill?  You can’t beat that old favourite remedy – a soak in a warm bath.  But you don’t need to head off to an exclusive spa for a top notch aromatherapy experience… why not DIY all the way to relaxation heaven with your own batch of bath salts?
 
Eucalyptus essential oil is wonderful in winter bath salts for an invigorating experience that also gives your sinuses a refreshing blast – and mixed with luscious sweet vanilla it’s a real treat.

Bath salts
You’ll need:
1 cup of Epsom salts
½ cup baking soda
3 drops (or more, if preferred) Bosisto’s Eucalyptus Oil
8 drops of vanilla essence mixed with a little olive or jojoba oil
Green food colouring (optional)
Plastic bag for mixing
Wide necked jar with a lid
 
Directions:
Add all ingredients to a plastic bag, seal top and agitate gently with your hands until it’s all mixed together.  Open and add a drop of green food colouring, if using, and mix through.  Pour contents of plastic bag into a pretty jar and add a label, if desired.  Use one tablespoon per bath (tip: a wooden spoon to ladle with, attached with raffia or string looks awesome)
