I also love the wonderful and beautiful lavender-scented and flavored gifts I see for sale at practically any worthwhile boutique. The price of those wonderful gifts (I would love to spoil myself with) is not as lovely, however. 😀
Then it occurred to me…maybe I could make some of those pretty things myself! (for myself…and, uh…gifts for others, I suppose ) 😀
So a little bit of Google-fu later and I’ve got a trove of free recipes to try out!
(Note: although some recipes add Baking Soda or Baking Powder, some folks have reported that unless the mixture is COMPLETELY dry, it will tend to explode, glass jar and all. So I didn’t add any of that to my recipe.)
Who doesn’t love a good soak in the tub (minus the shrieks of children) with a lovely dash of Lavender Bath Salts?
Thanks to the kind sponsorship of Tomoson and New York Biology, I was offered a sample of Lavender Essential Oil that I used for this review*.I just needed epsom salts, sea salt, food coloring and a small decorative jar (you can buy the kind of jar I used at a good craft store), and of course, the Lavender Essential Oil, which you can buy HERE for a very affordable price.
It was so easy to make, and within mere moments of opening the bottle and adding just a few small drops of the lavender oil, my kitchen smelled like a lovely lavender sachet! I can’t wait to try out my new pretty bottle of lavender bath salts!
I used 1/8 cup Epsom Salt and 1/16 cup Sea Salt, 3 drops Lavender Essential Oil, Several drops of red and blue food coloring, and mixed it well. Then I spooned it into the jar and applied a cute little label with a gluestick! That’s all there is to it!
It smelled so good! I’m thinking about also mixing this with some coconut oil (as a carrier oil, because you should never use essential oils undiluted on your skin!) as a lovely lotion for the inevitable winter-roughened skin every winter!
