HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN NATURAL BATH SALT AND TUB TEA

The main ingredient in Bath Salts is Epsom Salt (Magnesium Sulphate). This natural mineral soothes and relaxes sore muscles. Sea Salt (fine or coarse) eliminates moisture build up in bath salts and contains some therapeutic minerals. Dead Sea Salt contains the highest therapeutic mineral content of any of the salts.
