You can use sea salt & sugars (not powdered). Oils that you can use are endless. I just used baby oil but extra virgin olive oil and grape seed oil are great ones too. To give them a scent use pure extracts or essential oils.
The ratio: 2 parts salt/sugar to 1part oil then a few drops of scent if you want
My mixture: 1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup baby oil
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract and peppermint extract
I put mine in an air-tight glass jar that I got at the dollar store a while ago. This really didn't cost me anything but if I had bought all of it, it wouldn't have been $20 and I would have enough to fill the jar for a long time. I am going to try this with olive oil and dried thyme, lavender, sage etc.
I hope you guys try this.
