Makes 2-2½ cups
1 cup pink Himalayan rock salts
1 cup coconut milk powder*
10 drops vanilla essential oil
½ cup dried rose petals (optional)
Put all the ingredients into a bowl and toss gently to combine. Transfer to a dark-coloured glass jar to store. Keep the jar in a cool, dark place, and use within a month or two. To use, add a large handful to your bath and allow it to dissolve in the hot water. It’s best to do this right before you hop in the bath as this is when the essential oils are most fragrant. Inhale deeply and enjoy.
*You could also use cow’s milk or almond milk powder.
