There is nothing more relaxing than a nice warm bath with scented bath salts, and I thought bath salts would make a great holiday gift. That is, until I saw how much they cost. Have you seen the outrageous prices of bath salts recently??
This prompted me to come up with a homemade version for gift giving. This is a great gift and very frugal. You could add a bath sponge to make a nice gift set.
Here is the recipe for Homemade Lavender Bath Salts:
1 cup Epsom Salts
1 cup dead sea salt
1 drop red food coloring
1 drop blue food coloring
1 drop lavender essential oil
1 tsp. dried lavender (optional)
Mix in a large bowl for at least 2 minutes or until ingredients are very well blended. Using a funnel, pour into bottles or jars. You can decorate your jar with labels, gift tags, or ribbon.
