Sure, lipstick gift sets and prepackaged holiday soaps are lovely, but a handmade gift always feels extra-special. There isn't anyone on this planet who doesn't like to relax, so treat your loved one to some serious chill-out time with custom-blended scented bath salts. To see just how easy these bath-time presents are to make, just keep reading.
Scented Bath Salts
You will need:
A lidded jar or flip-top container
The essential oil of your choice (dried herbs will work, too)
Jar decorations: ribbon, gift tags, etc.
- Begin by filling the jar about halfway with the salts.
- Add a few drops of essential oil or dried herbs. (For the salts on the left, we used lavender, and on the right, we used the contents of about one-and-a-half tea bags of Traditional Medicinals chamomile and lavender tea.) Mix thoroughly.
- Fill the rest of the container with the salts, leaving just a little wiggle room at the top.
- Add about the same amount of oil or herbs you used before, shake again, and finish with a few festive embellishments on the outside to bring it all together.
