This bath Bomb looks really nice. But can I use Himalayan salt instead of Epsom salt for this recipe. I have Himalayan salt on hand and I use it in cooking. I have heard so much about its benefits for body and skin. So I really want to try this bath bomb recipe using Himalayan salt. If you want to know about this this salt then you can visit .

I LOVE using tea tree oil and lavender. It's very refreshing and calming!
