Lavender Bath Salts

We having been making lots of homemade gifts for friends and family for Christmas. For a couple of years now we have been giving foodie things such as jam, chutney, sauces, and chocolates. So this year I decided to try something different.

I made this with my five year daughter and how we did it:

We added 2kg of Epsom Salt into a metal bowl. Onto that my daughter dropped 180 drops of Lavender Essential Oil. Add 1kg of bicarbonate of soda and mix together. Put into jars. I used 200ml kilner jars, and this filled thirteen. Once I had finished I decided that some dried lavender would look nice in the jars, so this will be a job for tomorrow. They will then be tied together with some ribbon. My daughter will take some to school for her teacher and TA, hopefuuly they will enjoy them.
