No not those bath salts. I’m talking about the bath salt you use when taking a bath.
I am sure you are asking yourself “How the heck did Melissa get involved in making bath salts.” The answer is Yoga.
When I first started taking yoga, I attended a class called Slow Flow with Essential Oils. The instructor mixed in various combinations of essential oils into the yoga session. It made the experience invigorating and I wondered how she chose the combinations of scents that she did. I began doing the research, picked up a book to understand the combinations and mixes. As I familiarized myself with how essential oils and aromatherapy worked, I started thinking how I could incorporate this into the crafts I already enjoyed doing. And then it hit me, Harry Potter. No surprise there.
I started by creating scents that represented different aspects of the Harry Potter world. For example, scents to represent the different houses: Gryffindor, Slytherin, Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw. Once the scents were created, I had to figure out how to use those scents. Harry Potter bath salts were born.

- Jar to store the salt in
- Funnel to pour the salt into the jar

Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try!
