***Just a side note here - many people are struggling to make ends meet, and though it's still a ways away, Christmas is coming. For a very small investment you can make a large number of these and give them as gifts. Not only will it save you some cash, but it will also allow you to add some "love" and thoughtfulness to your gifts...Another thought regarding this and other bath salts. You can also add an appropriate stone - or several - to fortify and strengthen the salts...there is list (far from all inclusive, I'm afraid...) of different stones and their associations here
