Lavender Bath Salts
- In a large bowl mix 2 cups Epsom salt and 1 cup baking soda. Dab a few drops of lavender-scented oil onto a 2x4-inch scrap of white cotton fabric and stir through mixture. Repeat with drops of food coloring. Continue mixing scented oil and food coloring until desired scent and color is achieved. If desired, make two colors of salts to layer in a purchased apothecary jar (available at crafts stores and thrift shops).
- Spread salt mixture onto a cookie sheet for several hours, stirring several times. Wash and dry the jar. Spoon salts mixture into jar.
- Tie a baby spoon onto jar with ribbon.
- To use, dissolve several teaspoons of salt in bathwater.
Essential Oil Salt Foot Scrub
Pamper mom with an infused salt scrub. Customize mom's gift with her favorite essential oils. We love using lavender, clary sage, orange, bergamot, and cedarwood.
For the ultimate Mother's Day gift, add spa must-haves like a scrubbing brush, eye mask, and robe.
Sugar Sea Salt Scrub
A mix of raw sugar and salt gives this scrub a coarse texture, which helps achieve glowing skin. For one of our favorite DIY Mother's Day gifts, we like to mix a big batch and infuse smaller portions with different essential oils.
For the prettiest packaging, choose colored glass bottles and simple tags.
