How to Make Bath Salts


We've become a culture of quick showers rather than long luxurious baths...but the times when we do want to take a long soak, adding some scented and/or therapeutic salts to the water really make the bath wonderful. They're super easy to make, and with some variations in scents and ingredients, you can customize them into a wide variety of spa-like creations. Here are some basic instructions and basic recipes to get you started.
