Easy Homemade Chocolate Bath Salts

Chocolate Bath SaltsChocolate Bath Salts

Here’s a very easy recipe for homemade Chocolate Bath Salts. Maybe a good school holiday project for children?

Chocolate Bath Salts

1 cup Epsom salts
1 cup sea salt or kosher salt (coarse grain)
3 teaspoons cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ teaspoon cinnamon
1 tsp oil (almond, olive or sunflower will work)

Combine all the dry ingredients in a clean bowl. Add the vanilla extract and oil. Mix well to ensure oil is completely blended. Transfer to small clean jars or cello bags and close tightly. Sprinkle 1 – 2 spoonfuls in your bathtub, lie back in the water and relax.

* I added some baking soda to my mix to make my bath salts fizzy.
* I also omitted the vanilla extract and added 5 drops of peppermint essential oil.
* I gave jars to family members for Christmas.
* The Epsom salts and sea salt is good for soothing sore muscles and aches and pains.
* Make sure you read the recipe properly. My chocolate salts were a bit more chocolately than they should be because I put 3 Tablespoons of cocoa instead of 3 teaspoons. Duh!

      The combination of chocolate and peppermint is nice. Hubby used the salts in his bath tonight.
