Take your essential oil. Use those that are designed to be added to cream, soap, lotion. Massage oils are absolutely safe for the skin. But flavored mixes for sachets, handmade candles, lamps, etc. may cause irritation or severe allergic reactions. If you are preparing a relaxing blend, choose essential oils of rose, lavender, jasmine, and ylang ylang. Mint, rosemary, cinnamon, lemon and orange are great for stimulating baths. You can use one oil or several at once. You only need about 10-12 drops. Add them to salt and stir. Never do this with your bare hands - after all, there may be microcracks on your skin, and you will experience very unpleasant sensations.
If you want a colored salt or you are not satisfied with the shade in which the essential oil colored your product, add a few drops of food coloring. Mix again evenly.
