Soothing Lavender Bath Salts

Coarse Sea Salt
Lavender Essential Oil
Dried Organic Lavender
Spice Satchets
Clean, empty Jars
Epsom Salt -optional
Baking Soda -optional

Mix several drops (or up to 10-12) of the E.O. (essential oil) into about 2 cups of salt. You can mix 1 C. Sea Salt with 1 C. Epsom Salt, if you wish. Mix well, very well. The more you mix the better the scent will come through. You may also add 1-2 Teaspoons of Baking Soda-it makes your skin soft.

Sprinkle in the dried herbs. Mix well. (Just add however much you think is best.)

Pour into your pretty jars and lable.  Or you can tie on a ribbon and gift tag if you wish.

Include a premade spice sachet or cotton tea bag, so bathers can pour in desired amount.

The fun part of making your own Bath Stuff, is making it to your own needs or the way you want it to look. I can’t remember now just what all Linda and I did when we made it, back in July.

I know we made the above mix, then made another mix of just salt, the E.O. and food coloring. Then we layered the 2 in our jars. Added a pretty topper and gift tag, (since we were making them for gifts). And a small Tea Sachet, so the dried lavender wouldn’t float around in the tub, or clog the drain.

Lavender is best for a relaxing bath. Vanilla and Eucalyptus are good ones to use too.

I just took a bath with this, and it is as wonderful as it sounds!!!
