I have to start this post off with a funny story.
A couple of years ago when I first started with my lavender bath salt obession, it was right around the time that all the highschool kids were getting in big trouble by using the strange drug they nick named “bath salts”. I remember Seth coming home from work, looking at me very seriously, and telling me I shouldn’t use my bath salts any more. I was waiting for him to start laughing, but the guy was dead serious. He was actually concerned for me because he knew that I loved my lavender bath salts. He cautiously started telling me about how he had watched the news and that my bath salts were not good! I think he was worried I was going to become like of the troubled teen.
After I picked myself up off the floor from laughing, I had to explain to him that my Epsom Salts were NOT the same thing as this drug they call “Bath Salts”. It actually took a bit of convincing for him to finally believe me. I still laugh every time I think about that!!!
So onto the non-drug Bath salts…ha!
I LOVE lavender. I just love it. Pretty sure if I could put it on my cereal, I would….alright, maybe I don’t love it that much, but you get the picture?
These bath salts are my absolute favorite. I take a bath just about every night.
The smell of the lavender essential oil is calming, and the epsom salts are great for sore muscles.
Plus, they make a fabulous gift!
A glass jar
lavender essential oil
Fill the jar with epsom salts.
Add about 6 drops of essential oil.
Screw the lid on tight and shake well.
Add a bow if it’s a gift and you’re all set!!!
Scoop a few tablespoons into your bath water for a calming experience.
P.S. If you are planning on making this for a gift, make sure you buy enough supplies for you too. Trust me, if you don’t, you’ll end up keeping the gift!!!
