Bath Salts are Easy to Use.
For a bath, fill the tub about halfway to the desired level. Take a handful of fragrant salts and add them to the bath by holding your hand under the tap, allowing the salts to fall with the water into the bath tub. As you do this the fragrance will be released into the steam, allowing for a very fragrant bath. Depending on their size, the salts will dissolve quickly once in contact with hot water. Once you have poured one to two handfuls of bath salts into your bath, you’re ready to relax! Be sure to stir the bath water and circulate the salt well, so the fragrances are released into the steam.
To use bath salts for exfoliation, simply take a small handful of fine-grain bath salts and add a tiny bit of water. Work the mixture into a paste and smooth it over your skin. You’ll be softer and smoother than you ever imagined!
