Can I just add essential oils directly to my bath?
The Epsom salt and carrier oil help blend the oil but also helps the oils to blend in the water. It’s best to avoid having your oils just floating on the top. Oils like peppermint, spearmint are hot and can irritate sensitive areas.
Can I use the mixture as a scrub?
Yes! Epsom salts make this a great scrub. You can also try my DIY Foot Scrub recipe.
Where can I get quality essential oils?
There are many brands out there but not all are of the same quality and purity. I use Young Living Essential Oils which has a seed to seal guarantee. That means what’s on the label is all that’s in the bottle.
