We say it with a tongue firmly in cheek and a bit of a chuckle but it’s true, the Saffron Souk crew have been dabbling in some DIY on the bath & beauty front in a bid to feel more beautiful, even if it is only on the inside!
All good ‘me’ time at Saffron Souk generally starts with a bit of creativity so here we go – we’ve been trying our hand at making some bath salts. Many simple and wholesome soaks and rubs can be made right at home, often with things you have lurking at the back of your bathroom cabinet. We were surprised to discover how wonderfully simple it is to make your own bath salts so we couldn’t resist letting you in on the recipe…
1. The basic mix couldn’t be simpler – mix one part baking powder with two parts Epsom salts. You don’t have to be too precise with your measurements, but give them a good shake in a bottle to combine really well
1. Step 2 is to add some essential oils, herbs or spices to suit your mood – these are just a few suggestions, but if you’re after a relax try lavender oil, zesty lemon for a pick-me-up or for something a little different, ground ginger. Your options are almost limitless so let your creativity loose and concoct the perfect brew!
