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.
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)
