Make aromatic bath salts from common household items
Conduct the experiment under adult supervision. Possible allergens.
Reagents and equipment
500g sea salt;
1 tbsp dried chamomile;
1 tbsp dried mint;
1 tbsp dried thyme;
Combine the sea salt, dried chamomile, mint, thyme, rose petals, and lemon zest. Mix thoroughly. Your bath salts are ready! Store in a dry place.
Sea salt is rich in trace elements such as:
iodine (involved in thyroid gland function),
calcium (involved in bone and muscle tissue construction),
magnesium (helps absorb trace elements and vitamins)
and many others.
Blood vessels dilate in hot water, which allows microelements to be absorbed more easily. Moreover, sea salt baths help relieve muscle tension. Chamomile, mint, and thyme have antibacterial properties and soothe the skin. The essential oils in lemon zest lift the mood.
