Today B was nice and brought me back a sea salt from the store, so I could make some bath salts.

I made it in the 4oz jelly jars (Ball brand canning jars)

That’s about 1/2 a cup of salt.  Add a 1/4 cup of oil, in this one we used half sesame and half extra virgin olive oil.  To that, a few drops of vanilla extract, about 10 drops of grapefruit oil and some zest from a lemon and a lime that were sitting around.

Stir it all up, let it sit a minute, then add more salt if it’s too oily, more oil if it’s too dry.  Here it is all done except for stirring in a little more lime zest to make it smell just like the Ocean Salt scrub from Lush:

The best thing is to run warm water and scoop out about a walnut-sized amount and scrub your hands with it, rinse well and use some lotion if you want but you probably won’t need it. (Use Dream Cream if you want the whole Lush experience).  Super soft, good-smelling hands, what’s not to like?

(Thanks to Brigitte for stirring up this batch and taking the great pictures!)
