2 cups Epsom salts
2 tablespoons water
A few drops essential oil(s)
1 drop soap coloring if desired
Muffin tin, storage jars
Stir together Epsom salts and water in a mixing bowl. Add oil, 1 drop at a time, until strength of scent is to your liking. Add coloring, 1 drop at a time, until desired shade is achieved; stir until color is even throughout.
Spoon a generous amount of mixture (more than necessary) into muffin tin. Pack firmly. Let stand overnight.
Remove from tin carefully. Let dry completely, 2 to 3 days more. Transfer to jars.
½ Cup Citric Acid
1 Cup Baking Soda
¼ Cup Fine Grained Dead Sea Salt
3-6 ml Orange (or your preferred) Fragrance Oil
4-6 Sprays Witch Hazel
Molds or Muffin Tins
Combine the citric acid, baking soda and sea salt in a mixing bowl and
mix with your hands to get rid of all of the lumps. Add 3 ml of Fragrance Oil (or up to 6 ml if you want stronger scent). Again, mix with your hands. Depending on the moisture level of the current mixture, spritz the bath
bombs with witch hazel. It should take between 4-6 spritzes, the mixture
should be wet enough so when you squeeze the powder in your palm, it
will stick together. Press the mixture into the molds or tins and pack it as tightly as you can. You want these to stick together. Leave the bath bombs
in the mold for about 1 minute then gently release them by flipping the mold over and tapping the backs of the cavities. They
should easily slide out. Let them sit for at least 6-8 hours (or
over night) before touching them. They will crumble if you touch them too soon.
Nicely scented, natural polish good for most wood types.
Makes about 3-2/3 cups
2/3 cup or 5.3 oz Beeswax
3 cups or 21.2 oz Olive oil
If you like, you may also add:
30 drops anti-oxidant clear Grapefruit Seed Extract or Vitamin E oil
10 drops Essential oil woodsy scents and/or lavender
1. Place both the beeswax and the olive oil into a double boiler. A double boiler system can be created by placing a sauce pan inside another pan filled with hot water. You should heat your oils indirectly and evenly because it's safer for you and helps maintain the integrity of the ingredients.
2. Heat the double boiler/pans on medium heat until the oil/beeswax mixture is completely melted. Don't turn your heat up high or there's a chance that boiling water will splash into your oils.
3. Add the anti-oxidant and essential oil and stir well. Let cool about 30 minutes then pour the mixture into clean and dry wide-mouth glass jars made for canning. Allow to cool at least two hours until it's a semi-hard consistency.
4. You can use the polish immediately. To use, just scoop some of it out with your fingers or with a rag and work the polish into any wood surfaces. Excess polish can be wiped off right away or leave it on for a couple of hours to allow more oils to permeate before buffing it.
