    I made bath salts with sea salt, epsom salts and baking powder and the lavender and rose petals turned black within a few days. Any advice? Is one of these ingredients causing the problem?

      Hi Aline!

      Because lavender buds and rose petals are natural products, they will eventually turn brown. You can definitely use the soak even with the brown ingredients. You can also leave them out if you like. :)

    How many oz should I put into each muslin bag? Right now, I am filling them 1/2 to 3/4 full. Also, do you empty the contents of the bag into the bath or simply drop the bag into the tub still tied up?

    • says

      Hi Valerie!

      We did not measure how many ounces we placed into each bag, we just filled them about 1/2 to 3/4 of the way full, so you’re doing it right! :) The bag can be dropped into the bag loosely tied, or you can empty the contents, whichever you prefer :)

    If you make this with the essential oils and then place in a plastic jar until it is sold will the scent still be there say 3 months down the line or is it better to just scent it before you ship it out?

      Hi Nicki!

      Aloe Extract and Aloe Vera Gel are indeed different products. Where Aloe Vera Extract is a thinner liquid, while Aloe Vera Gel is a thicker product. If you are unable to find Aloe Vera Extract, it is not totally essential for this recipe. You could swap it with another extract as well, like Chamomile or Green Tea Extracts! :)

    I ordered with the “add to cart” option and did not have enough colloidal oatmeal for even one batch! The recipe calls for 1/2 cup and I was given barely 1/3 cup with my order. To compensate I ground old fashioned oats to make my own colloidal oatmeal. I could not get mine as fine as the Bramble Berry colloidal oatmeal, but since it will be scooped into a muslin bag I hope it won’t matter.

    Hello thanks for sharing the recipe Im in AUS and keen to give it a to. Just a question, can I store it inside the Muslin bags? Then just grab one when I wish to use it?
    Instead of storing in the jar?
    Could it be put in a tea bag also?

    Look forward to your reply :)

    • says

      Good morning, Stephanie!

      The reason we suggest storing it in a jar, is because the jar is airtight and keeps out any moisture that could get into it and start growing mold or microbes. You could put it into a tea bag as long as you kept that tea bag in an airtight space. I hope that this helps! =)

    Yum! Lots of skin-loving ingredients in there! Great recipe! Helichrysum – ooh-la-la!

    Do you think if I added any powdered milk product to that, I’d need a preservative? If so, which one & how much?
