Lavender Bath Salt Recipe

I don't know about you...but I just love a nice warm bath. Especially when it's so cold out. I've been making some lavender bath salts for the shop and a big batch for beside my tub. I wanted to share the simple recipe with you all.



 I just love the look and smell of lavender but you can use any essential oil that you like


This is the big jar I made for myself. I have been making alot of these
 flashcards lately. I keep finding new, fun  ways to use them.



These are the little jars that I made for the shop. I think they would make a great little gift.




Here is the recipe. I hope you get the time to enjoy a nice, relaxing soak.


Bath Salt
 
Ingredients:
  • 2 cups  sea salt. Hobby Lobby sells a big tub in the soap making section
  • 2 Cups Epsom salt. Sea salts typically come in several grain sizes. Combining multiple grain sizes can make your salts more appealing.
  • 15-24 drops of your selected essential oil or essential oil blend. 
Directions:
Place the salt mixture into a bowl.  Then, add the drops of your chosen essential oils. Again, mix very well. Add the mixture to a pretty jar,  or container that has a tight fitting lid. Salts that are kept in a container that is not air tight will lose their aroma more quickly.
After a day,  mix well again to ensure that the oils are well incorporated.

To Use: Add 1/2-1 cup of the salts to running bath water. Sit back and RELAX


Thank you all for stopping by

My favorite types of baths are Epsom salt baths. They are so good for you and feel great.
