Pretty in Pink Rose and Himalayan Salt Soak
Feminine and pretty, this floral salt soak smells like roses and has a beautiful soft pink color thanks to the Himalayan salts.
I love this particular DIY salt soak recipe because it takes about five minutes to create and makes a great gift.
What Makes this Salt Soak Special
Often times when I create these DIY projects, I have an artistic vision in mind. Salt soaks, scrubs, body butters and oils can sometimes get a little repetitive if you've been making them for years. These days I try to think of what would be visually stimulating as well as therapeutic and relaxing.
This is not a complicated salt soak to make. It's not outside of the box. But it is classically gorgeous and feminine and seductive. Sometimes it's not about coming up with something entirely new, but recreating something you know that works.
If you're lucky enough to have a bathtub, then I suggest whipping this up and enjoy it in the tub a couple of times a week!

Note: I always sterilize my DIY beauty containers first by placing them in boiling water for about five minutes and then letting them air dry and cool down before using them.
