Bath salts naturally absorb moisture from the air. It is important to store them in an airtight container to help avoid clumping.
Bath salts are still useable even if they get clumpy. Break up the clumps with your fingers or a spoon.
If you are worried about the bath salts clumping inside the jar, you can add a silica gel packet inside each jar.
Silica gel packets absorb moisture. Just be sure to remove the packet before using the salts in the bath water.
Silica gel packets are commonly used to help protect products like food, clothing, shoes, and electronics from moisture.
Re-use silica gel packets you may find packed inside product purchases. Shoeboxes are a common place to find silica packets.
The blend of coarse grain and finer grain salts creates a beautiful, textured look!
Pink salt mixed with the white epsom salt is a pretty blend of natural colors.
