BATH SALTS are wonderfully fragrant, but they also help detoxify the skin, as the minerals in the salts have a drawing out effect. Since bath salts can be slightly drying, use a good moisturizer after the bath. To use, add about 3 heaping tablespoons to warm bathwater when filling the tub.

Combine the sea salt and 3 to 5 drops of food coloring if desired. Add the Lavender essential oil, and mix. Store in a tightly sealed glass container.
