Looking for a healthy, quick, easy, inexpensive, yet luxury holiday gift to make and give to your female friends? I may have the answer for you: Bath Salts!
So out of all of that, “What makes bath salts healthy?” you may ask. Good question! Of the three minerals, Iron, Calcium and Magnesium, American’s, because of diet and agricultural practices, are lowest in Magnesium which is important in helping the body regulate enzymes, and plays a role in muscle control, nerve impulses, and release of toxins. A lack of Magnesium is a factor in heart disease, stroke, osteoporosis, arthritis, stress related illnesses, and host of other health related problems. A salt bath is high in Magnesium and our skin, being the largest organ of the body that it is, will soak up the Magnesium to its heart’s content, so to speak. What a healthy gift this is!
Here’s the recipe:
8 Cups Sea Salt or Epsom Salt
Christmas Blend of Essential Oils:
4 drops Rosemary
7 drops of Orange
4 drops Nutmeg
2 drop Myrrh
If you don’t care so much for this Christmas Blend recipe, add your favorite blend of essential oils or a single essential oil such as lavender and continue on…
Stir all the ingredients together in a large mixing bowl and fill the assembled containers.
The following images are some “assembled container” ideas for you.
Just a hint here: Presentation, Presentation, Presentation. It’s the difference between “That’s nice” and “Wow! This is great!”
Look for unique jar shapes of fairly thick glass with tight lids.
After looking at this recipe, I know you, you’ll want to make your own. Please tell us what essential oil, herb, or added ingredient would you add to make your BATH SALT GIFT unique!
