2 cups epsom salts
2 tablespoons glycerine
4-5 drops food coloring
Scent oil to personal taste.
You can either mix well in a bowl, or use a zip lock bag and mash
Basically oil and scent. Unless you want foaming bath oil, then I can't
help you. Use almond oil, apricot kernel oil, wheatgerm oil, jojoba oil,
grapeseed oil, olive oil, soybean, sunflower, coconut, sesame.
As you can see, almost any oil can be used. They all have different
qualities (including my number one quality: price). However, they're all
quite greasy and non-soluable. The only soluable oil I know of is turkey
red oil (sulfanated castor oil). You need to find a vendor who sells it
unscented. Any bath oils made with this will disperse in water and not
leave a ring. Unfortunately, I don't have any vendor names/addresses
handy, but I will try to post some later.
3 to 1 of Sea Salt (Rock Salt, large crystals)
1 to 3 of Epsom Salts
Essential Oils to smell. I use no more than 3 different fragrances in a small
Food Colouring for colouring the salts.
So for each 3 teaspoons of sea salt that I use, I put in 1 teaspoon of Epsom salts. I don't know what prices are like in the states, but Sea Salt is quite a bit cheaper here, hence this combination.
You can use any essential oils that you like.

2 cups Epsom Salt
1 cup Rock Salt
1 tsp Glycerine
Essential Oil any fragrance you like
Just mix the salts and glycerine and add enough oil to get the desired
fragrance and food coloring to get the desired color. Feels great in the
tub! Good Luck

1 cup sea salt
1 cup kosher or canning salt
3 cups epsom salts
1 tablespoon glycerin
2 packages Kool Aid or other powdered drink mix for color and to to add a
fruity note to the scent
Essential Oils for fragrance
I put the salts in a large plastic bag, zipping it closed and shaking
well to blend. I then dribble the glycerine down the side of the bag and
blend that in by squeezing the salts through and through . Then comes
the Kool Aid. I like to blend the "scent" of the Kool Aid with whatever
Essential Oil I choose so the color seems to match the scent. The KA
gets mixed in thoroughly and then I add the oils a few drops at a time
squeezing it through the salts till well blended. The end result is
quite colorful and nice and the color does not stain either yourself or
the tub. I have a recipe for a fizzy feeling bath salts if you are
interested. Dee in Oregon
