Homemade Bath Crystals

I love a long soak in a hot bath and I especially love to add scented bath crystals. sure there are lots to buy in the shops but making your own is so easy & its fun too....not to  mention way less expensive. the things you need are simple

sea salt
essential oil
colouring
mixing bowl
spoon to mix
decorative jar for storing  finished crystals

pour salt into bowl, add colouring  (be careful as a little goes a long way, I've learnt the hard way) when desired colour leave to sit a while before adding scent/scents  of choice, I used rose & geranium in one jar and lemon & lime citrus in the other  (note adding the scents can cause the mix to become wet thus making the colour stronger more vibrant, don't panic it will settle. when satisfied with the colour/scent leave to dry before putting into decorative containers/jars

I'm sharing with
