Jasmine and Vanilla Chamomile Bath Salts

-Bath salts may seem too simplistic a hostess gift to make, but be creative with the types of salts and scent blends, package it creatively, and she will treasure it.

- Bath salts can provide a wide variety of benefits for your body and your skin.

- Basic Epsom salt soaks can draw toxins out of the skin, and help heal sore muscles.

- Ancient salts, grey salts, pink salts and sea salts are full of trace minerals that our skin needs, but almost never gets from external sources.

- A 20-minute soak in one of these salt bath soaks will make the skin glow, and uplift spirits. Your friends will love your thoughtfulness.
