  • I’ve had better luck mixing the oils with epsom salt and then putting it in the bath, otherwise the oils just float on top of the water. And I add a little V6 or coconut oil to it to moisten my skin.

    • can you mix the oils with the salts and store them in a container for future use?

  • Sounds awesome!
