Lavender Scented Bath Salts

 Lavender Scented Bath Salts

(Recipe taken from The Art Of Handmade Living by Willow Crossley)

This recipe will make two medium sized Kilner jars full. They make a really lovely gift and I often make a batch for myself, the lavender aroma and salts are very soothing on sensitive skin.

Ingredients

Two cups of Epsom Salts

One Cup of coarse sea salt

1/2 cup of baking soda

50 drops of lavender essential oil

several sprigs of dried lavender ( you can dry you own really easily)

– Mix the Epsom salts and sea salt together with the baking soda

– Add the lavender oil stirring as you add.

– Add the dried lavender

– Put in a pretty jar and label with a gift tag

– Add a ribbon and wooden scoop ( or an antique silver spoon also looks beautiful)
