Valentine’s Day is just a few short weeks away. What better way to celebrate than by pampering yourself or a loved one with a handmade body care product? I recently made the following sweet lavender bath salts recipe with a group of my friends. Lavender smells divine and is oh-so-good for relaxing the body and mind…which we need after the holidays. It is simple to make and can help create an unforgettable experience!
Sweet Lavender Bath Salts
Floral and relaxing, these salts are a perfect addition to any bath.
– 1 cup Salt (Epsom, Sea Salt, Dead Sea Salt, or a mixture)
– 1/4 cup Baking Soda
– 20 drops organic Lavender essential oil
– 1 TBSP organic Lavender flowers
Mix salt and baking soda together in a large bowl. Add essential oil and Lavender flowers, blend well. Package in a jar, or use right away.
Note: For a slightly warming, detoxifying effect, steep a piece of ginger root and add the tea to your bath.
