Fizzy Bath Salts Recipe

A long soak in the tub is one of life's most underrated pleasures! It doesn't cost a lot. It doesn't make you fat or unhealthy. Add some scented soap or bath salts and it becomes a simple way to unwind and pamper yourself after a stressful day.

Old Fashioned Lavender Fizzing Bath Salts

Blend 2 cups of baking soda, 1 cup of cornstarch and 1 cup of citric acid in a non -reactive bowl- glass works fine. In a separate small bowl mix 2 teaspoons of lavender essential with 1 teaspoon of rosemary oil then add a drop at a time to the dry ingredients mixing well after each addition. Put into a glass jar with a tight fitting lid and let the mixture age for 2 weeks to blend and mellow the scent.

Use 1/2- 1/2 cup of your salts in each warm bath. They will fizz and smell wonderful!
