Homemade Bath Salts for Spa

Homemade Bath salts for a luxury spa at home.

We’ve become a culture of quick showers rather than long luxurious baths…but the times when we do want to take a long soak, adding some scented and/or therapeutic salts to the water really make the bath wonderful. Bath salts add a beautiful and aromatic touch to any room.
