Make it Yourself: Orange Dreamsicle Bath Salts

I am a sucker for all things that remind me of my childhood years and this recipe reminds me of  those infamous orange push pops.  I have made more things than I can count with this essential oil blend.  This is too good not to share:

2 cups epsom salt
1 cup dead sea salt (I used pink himalayan)
20 drops vanilla essential oil
20 drops orange essential oil
1-2 tablespoons of carrier oil (almond, grapeseed, etc.)

Simply combine the ingredients above  in a container and give it a really good stir and shake to make sure the oils are well dispersed.  Add the mixture to your bath.  Then, just relax and enjoy!

I think you mean vanilla fragrance oil.

I used Vanilla Essential oil. YOu can also find an oleoresin or absolute as well. While the oil/absolute/resins are definately more expensive,I tend to stay away from 'fragrance' oils because there is no way of knowing their chemical make-up. I want to know what I'm putting on my body. You can find the essential oil/resin/absolute at some of the following links:

Thanks, I had been told that there was no vanilla essential oil. I am very excited to find out there is.
