Ingredients: 3 cups salt. Recommended salt types: Sea Salt, Dead Sea Salt, Himalayan Pink Salt, Epsom salt, or a combination these salts. Salts typically come in several grain sizes. Combining multiple grain sizes can make your salts more visually appealing. Although chunkier salts often look prettier, larger salts do take longer to dissolve in the tub and can be a little painful or awkward if you step or sit on on a few chunks that haven't fully dissolved. 15-24 drops of your selected essential oil or essential oil blend. Be sure and take heed in the safety data for the oil(s) you choose to use. Optional: 1 tablespoon JoJoba, Fractionated Coconut Oil or other carrier oil for miniaturization. Steps: Place the salt mixture into a bowl. If you have chosen to include the optional vegetable oil within your salt recipe, add it to the plain salts and mix well with a spoon or fork. Then, add the drops of your chosen essential oils. Again, mix very well. Add the mixture to a pretty jar, salt tube, or container that has a tight fitting lid. Salts that are kept in a container that is not air tight will lose their aroma more quickly.
After a day, you may wish to mix well again to ensure that the oils are well incorporated.
How to Use: Add 1/2-1 cup of the salts to running bath water. Mix well to ensure that the salt has dispersed well in the tub before entering. To keep the essential oils from evaporating too quickly, you can add the bath salts just before getting in the tub instead of while the water is running. Sitting on undissolved chunky bath salts can be uncomfortable, so make sure the salts have dissolved well before entering. --ENJOY--

How do you make sure that they do not clump? I made bath salts with epsom and sea salts with baking soda and essential oils and it is clumped so much so that I have yo scrape it out of the jars
