Bathing Salts

Things You Need
  • 1 cup of washing soda
  • A plastic bag
  • A rolling pin (or something similar that can crush lumps)
  • A bowl
  • A spoon for stirring
  • Essential oil
  • Food coloring powder 

The Way You Do
  1. Take the cup of washing soda and put it into a plastic bag. Crush the lumps with a rolling pin or similar object.
  2. Empty the bag into a bowl and stir in 5 or 6 drops of your favorite essential oil such as rosemary, lavender or mint.
  3. Stir in a few drops of food coloring until the mixture is evenly colored.
  4. Put the mixture into clean dry containers and enjoy as you please. 

What You Observe 

Bath Salts are typically made from Epsom salts (magnesium sulfate), table salt (sodium chloride) or washing soda (sodium carbonate). The chemical make up of the mixture makes it easy to form a lather. Bath salts are said to improve cleaning and deliver an appealing fragrance when bathing.
