DIY Scented Bath Salts- very easy and inexpensive gift idea

I have decided this year for Christmas I will hand make 80% of my gifts. So I thought for all the women I give gifts to, I was going to create a spa themed basket. The first thing I made was the easiest gift ever, Lavender Bath Salts. This smells amazing! I have always used Epson Salts for my bath but never thought that it was this easy to make them scented. I will never buy full price bath salts again! Simple mix together Epson salt, your favorite scent of essential oils and dried flowers/lavender/citrus peel (optional). Takes 5 minutes and costs under $2 to make (if you buy a $1 container or around $1 if you can use an old jar)! I will share many other recipes as the month goes on.

    Amy, most health food stores and some craft stores carry essential oils. I find the best quality usually comes from the health food stores and often they have samples you can sniff. Have fun.

    Hi Amy, There are many sites online that you can order essential oils through for a very reasonable price. The only downfall is you can't smell what you are purchasing.
