With a few drops of essential oils, you can whip up some quick homemade
bath gifts for friends and family. To package, look for cellophane bags,
interesting jars or even small glass spice jars.
2 cups of Epsom salts,
or coarse sea salts
4-5 drops of essential oils
Measure salts and oils into a plastic bag, seal and mix thoroughly by
tossing and rubbing the bag. Use up to ½ cup salts per bath.
2 cups cornstarch
½ cup baking soda
5-6 drops of essential oils
Blend all ingredients well in a glass bowl. Then, using a fine-mesh sieve,
sift the powder two to three times until fine and fluffy. Store in a
shaker jar or in a wide-mouth jar with a powder puff.
1 cup unscented lotion
2-3 drops of essential oils
Mix to combine; store in a glass jar. Use within 2-3 weeks. If any
separation occurs, stir first before using.
