Sea Salt, Dead Sea Salt, Himalayan Salt, Epsom Salt or any other high quality salt. Be sure that it does not contain additives such as iodine or anti-caking chemicals.
High Quality or Organic Oil I personally like apricot kernel oil, jojoba and sunflower oils together. You could also use coconut (solid or fractionated), sweet almond, etc.
Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils contact me for my recommendations. In the video below I used Clary Sage, Lavender and Lemongrass.
