Salts mixture ingredients.
At this point, I think like a chef/baker. I mix my dry ingredients first. This is a combination of epsom salt, Dead Sea salt, and baking soda. Collectively, these ingredients:
- calm, reduce skin irritations and symptoms of eczema,
- decreases skin itching,
- soften rough, dry skin,
- remove dead skin cells, and
- boost skin health by addressing inflammation.
Added bitter orange and sandalwood powders.
Do you know why chefs/bakers mix dry ingredients separately before adding wet ingredients? Once you add the wet ingredients, you don't want to over-mix the flour because it can make your dough tough. Nobody wants tough baked goods.

This is where I wear my herbalist hat. When I add the diluted essential oil blend to the dry salts mixture, I massage (with gloved hands, of course) the blend and set my intentions for the end user.
I think the universe was feeling the good energy and vibes, too. As I was channeling intentions for this batch, Anita Baker's song, Caught Up in the Rapture (of Love) started playing on Pandora.
I wish whoever receives The Egyptian Bath Salt from this batch much love and happiness.
