Valentine's DIY:Chocolate Bath Salt


Happy weekend to us! I'm off having fun at the Magic Kingdom, and will need a little relaxing after my adventures. Luckily, I've got some DIY Chocolate Bath Salt in my bag just for that! I love making these (in lots of different scents) and they're one of the easiest DIYs. They smell delicious! I've seen bath salt for up to $25--that's crazy! You can make your own for so much cheaper.You'll love these as a gift or as a Valentine's Day treat. Enjoy.


Need:
2 c sea salt
2 tsp cocoa powder
10 drops essential oil


Do:
Mix ingredients.
Allow to dry overnight.
Store in an airtight container.
Pour a cup into warm bath water. Relax!

Try:

  • The possibilities are endless with the fragrance combinations. I like mint, coconut, or strawberry.
  • If you don't want to use an essential oil, try a tablespoon or two of a light oil or vegetable glycerin.
  • I like adding 1/2c of baking soda to soften skin.
FYI:
  • This makes enough for 2 baths. Feel free to make smaller/larger batches by adjusting the recipe.
  • Kosher or Epsom salts may be used in place of sea salt.
  • After about 20 minutes or so, I rinse off before exiting the tub. 
  • If allergic to ingredients, have high blood pressure, or are pregnant, please consult physician before using.
