Generally speaking, there shouldn’t be more than ten total drops of essential oil per half-cup of bath salts. Experiment to find what works best, and please use only genuine essential oils. You should remember, too, the irritating qualities of some essential oils, and use accordingly.

You can use the power of the elements to create holy water.
Take a large, clean, open-top container and put it outside on the ground when you know there is going to be a thunder storm. The water you collect will be “blessed” by the four elements.

The sign of Aquarius is a cerebral one, and your ability to turn “odd” or eccentric ideas into strokes of genius is well known. Since communication (and mass communication in particular) is your specialty, the herbs above are all associated with the air principle, which rules the intellectual side of life. To increase your already powerful intuition, use Citron, Clover, or Rosemary. Above all else, listen to that intuition. It will seldom prove to be wrong.
