    Ruth,



    You should be able to get essential oil at a health store, e.g. Whole

    Foods. Our local vitamin/health store carries various oils too.



    Glyercin can be found at your local drug store. You might need to

    check a couple different ones. Our local CVS didn't carry it, but

    Walgreens did. You should be able to find the glycerin at the health

    store and maybe Walmart as well. Look in the pharmacy section. It's

    usually by the hydrogen peroxide and Vaseline. Glycerin is used for

    the skin, so check with the skin care products.



    Could you post the recipe you found, please? I don't think I've ever

    seen one that includes baking soda and glycerin.

    You can find the oils and glycerin at craft shops like Michaels in

    the soap making area. They sell bath grade oils, those will work

    perfectly for it.

    Hello Heidi,

    I have not read it too closely but here ya go! I really have no idea what the baking soda does in this case.

    http://www.allfreecrafts.com/giftina...th-salts.shtml

    Don't forget to pamper yourself with the aromatherapy fragrance that suits you best!



    Just follow our directions to decorate four recycled glass jars with free printable labels for the front and back of each jar, like the gift in a jar bottles shown: (left to right) Mandarin Orange Bath Salts, Lavender Bath Salts, Bath Salts from the Sea and Patchouli Bath Salts.
    <TABLE width="100%">


    <TD vAlign="top" width="50%">What You Will Need:

    For the Bath Salts Recipes -


    <LI>epsom salts or sea salt, or both, and baking soda <LI>essential oils - mandarin orange, lavender, sandlewood, and patchouli <LI>food coloring <LI>1 or 2 teaspoons of glycerin per jar - optional, but glycerin is an effective skin moisturizer and a nice addition</LI></TD>
    <TD width="50%">For the Decorative Glass Jars -
    <LI>four glass jars <LI>printable jar labels <LI>scissors and glue to cut out and stick on labels <LI>assorted embellishments, including several yards of orange or peach colored ribbon, small amount of lavender or mauve ribbon, ecru or white doily, raffia, tacky glue and household twine</LI>
    <TABLE>


    <TD width="100%">

    General Instructions:

    1. Collect your jars, remove labels, then wash and dry thoroughly.



    2. For most bath salts recipes you can use your choice of epsom salts or sea salt, with baking soda, if desired, or a combination of all three. One good mix is one cup of epsom salts, with 1/4 cup of sea salt, and two or three tablespoons of baking soda. A little more or less of each ingredient is fine for most bath salts. Epsom salts and sea salt are soothing for tired muscles, while both will gently soften the water for a luxurious bath experience. You could also add a tablespoon or two of finely ground regular oatmeal (not quick cooking) for silky, skin-softening water.



    3. Fill each jar to the top with the combination of bath salts that you plan to use. Empty the salts into a mixing jar and add a drop or two of glycerin, if using. Add your choice of essential oil - how many drops you use is a personal preference, but start with two or three drops and see if you like the fragrance. The same goes for the liquid food coloring; sometimes I use quite a few drops of food color to get the strong hue that I like, but so far it hasn't stained the bath tub or anyone's skin. Remember that the color and fragrance will be much diluted in the bath water. Stir the salts vigorously until all ingredients are thoroughly combined.



    For specific aromatherapy bath salts recipes, and how to decorate each jar, please see the individual instructions that follow:
