Knife & Cutting Board

Mixing Bowl & Spatula

Tablespoon

 

Ingredients:

28oz Epsom Salt

4oz Bentonite Clay

5ml Organic Essential Oil

1 handful Eucalyptus Leaves

1 handful Rosemary Sprigs

1 handful of Horehound Leaves

1 handful of Borage Leaves

1 handful of Sage Leaves

Step 1: Measure out the Epsom Salt and set aside in a mixing bowl.

Step 2: Strip Herbs from tough stems/stalks and crush the leaves in the hands.

Step 3: Gather the herbs together to finely chop them. Steps 2 and 3 can be done simultaneously. One person can strip herbs and crush, while the other person chops.

Step 4: Combine all the herbs with the Epsom salt and mix together.

Step 5: Add the 5ml essential oil slowly to the mixture, stirring well throughout.

Step 6: Transfer the salt mixture to the jars and close tightly.

Step 7: Gift or enjoy you salts!  The mixture can be dissolved into a bath, 2-3 tablespoons per bath. This is a blend that really opens up airways!

*Note: It is recommended to dilute essential oils for topical application. This recipe is calculated to account for about 3 drops of essential oil per 1oz of salt, which would be a .5% dilution, that is generally safe for children.
