Hi all...

I know this is a dumb question, but I was wondering if anyone would know alternatives to bath salt uses...i.e., how to use bath salts in the shower. I tried to google it, but most of sites recommend drawing a bath. I love taking baths, but I don't have access to a bath (unless someone can tell me how to "improvise" a safe and removable bathtub plug...and I'd really rather not resort to that).

If there are other, creative alternatives to use bath salts, I would love to know...thanks! :heart:

Since the salts are to soften the water/skin or have mineral properties, I don't know if you would get the same benefits in the shower.

Maybe you could do a foot spa thing with them instead?

^Argh, I was afraid of that. I really would love to do the bath thing, but I don't have access to a bathtub. :sad:

I will consider doing a scrub or foot spa. Thanks!

If the bath salts are aromatherapy then you could use them in the shower because you will still benefit from the smell/aroma. But if they are just regular salts I don't see much benefit.

Also just fyi LUSH used to make shower bomb thingies that are made specifically for the shower. I forgot the actual name of them. You may want to check to see if they still make them

^Hey, that's really cool! I should definitely try that!

I actually caved in after work and bought a tub stopper at Rite Aid...I didn't realize how cheap they were (less than $3). :shame: I feel silly now...However, I think these ideas are great, esp. since I'm planning to move out and I might be in a place that doesn't have a bathtub.

alternatives are with sugar with olive oil if you have dry skin, and also oaths with refined salt if your skin is oily,..
