It’s been about five years since I made the switch from store-bought to homemade gifts for the vast majority of my gifting list. It’s been a huge help not only for my budget but it also helps keep me out of the rampant commercialism of the hoildays and really thinking about what the special people in our lives might enjoy rather than feeling like I need to spend X amount of dollars per person. I’ve shared a HUGE amount of DIY gifts here on the blog over the years and am always brainstorming more ideas-today I’m sharing DIY Lavender Bath Salts that make the perfect gift for anyone on your list that might need a little relaxation (which is us all isn’t it??) !!**
You can make these in any quantity you desire-whether you want a relaxing soak yourself or to mass produce them for gifts. Simply combine in the following ratio: 1 cup Epsom salts: 6 drops Lavender Essential Oil: 2 tbsp Lavender buds. Mix well and package them up! I am gifting mine in Lavender Ball mason jars because, hey-it matches! A pretty satin ribbon and I have a homemade gift that will not only be appreciated but were frugal and all natural to make!
