Creating Bath Salts
The basic ingredients are table salt, baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) & Epsom salts (magnesiumsulfate). Some herbalist also use borax. Add the salts to a large bowl in these proportions:
3 parts Epsom salts
2 parts baking soda
1 part table salt (or borax)
Mix thoroughly. This is now the base from which you can create a wide variety of bath salts.
Its wise to add the power of colors to bath salts. Use plain food coloring for this purpose, letting it fall drop by drop onto the salt base. If two or more colors are required to mix an exotic hue (such as purple), mix these in a spoon first and then add to the salts to avoid creating a two-toned product.
Add many drops for a darker colored salt; fewer for a lightly hued salt. Mix the color into the salts with a spoon until it is evenly distributed.
Now add the essential oils drop by drop, one ingredient at a time, until the scent seems right. Mixwith a spoon until all salt particles are moistened. (Could take 1/2 hour or more) As you mix, visualize the energies within the oils merging with each other and with the salt. Keep the salt's magickal goal in mind while you stir.
Empower the mixture. Use or store until needed.
As to proportions, rely on your nose to determine the exact quanties. The more potent the finished products' scent, the less will have to be used for each bath. They should be strongly scented.
To use, add from 2 tablespoons to one-half cup of the ritual bath salts to a full tub. Mix with your hands, feeling their energies merge with the water.
While sitting in the tub, soak up the power. Allow yourself to receive it, or alternately, to realease specific negative energies from yourself into the water.
Always keep tub clean. Ritual baths taken in unclean bathtubs won't have the desired effects!
Remember: Use only genuine essential oils!
