Thank You both very much for the replies. I have been dabbling (so to speak) with bath salts for a yr or so now. As of yet I havent sold them mostly just given them to family and close friends. The only ones I have made are just sea salt and epsom salts with some scent, once in a while a color but those take a bit to dry. The seem to have turned out good, the people who have recieved them came back for more and tried to buy them.
I would like to try to make some oatmeal and milk bath soaks, but as of yet havent. That is why I asked in a different post about powerded FO or EOs to add to those so they wouldnt be wet and clumpy from the scents. Does Honey powder have a scent? Anyone know? Anyway again Thanks so much for the information. Keep up all the good work this is an awsome and very informative forum.
I make a sea salt and oat bran bath salt...so that the mixture doesn't clump, add your EOs (I recommend only using EOs, especially if you are not using preservatives, because quite a few of them have natural antimicorbial, antibacterial, and antioxidant properties whereas FOs do not) to a small amount of the total salt, mix well and allow this to cure in a closed container for several days, and then mix this portion in with the rest of your blend. Because EOs are oil-based, and not water-based, your salts shouldn't clump. They WILL cause your oats to clump, which is why I add them to the salt portion only. I hear that adding the EOs to dendritic salts (used at 10-20% of your total salt quantity) makes the fragrance last much longer, but have yet to try that.
Have fun, good luck!
