Guide: How to Make Your Own Lavender Bath Salts

My bath salt recipe involves only four ingredients: epsom salt, sea salt, baking soda, and lavender essential oil. Epsom salt and sea salt are wonderful at relaxing the muscles and drawing toxins from the body while baking soda is fabulous for softening skin.  The lavender provides a relaxing fragrance, but you could also experiment with other essential oils like rosemary and peppermint.
