Mother’s Day is less than 7 days away, the perfect excuse to craft.
I scoured the internet and Pinterest for some inspiration and decided on creating a relaxation basket with all the fixings for the perfect bath. What Mother doesn’t need a little relaxing bath time?
The Baskets is filled with
- Lavender Infused Bath Bombs
- Lavender Infused Bath Salts
- Lavender Infused Bath Tea
- Lavender Infused Shortbread Cookies
- Bottle Cap Magnets
- A Chalkboard hang tag to go on the bathroom door
I made everything lavender scented because lavender is calming and relaxing. Over the next few days I will be sharing all the instructions to each project. I spent around $30-$35 for all of the projects. I am including the prices and places I shopped to make it easier on all of you.
2 cups baking soda – $.89 Safeway
1 cup cream of tartar – $5 Whole Foods
1/2 tbs olive oil – $8 – Safeway
cosmetic grade soap dye, purple – $4.99 Michael’s
2 tbs dried lavender – $3 Whole Foods
Water Spray Bottle – $2 CVS
Silicon or plastic trays – $1.99 each (I purchased 2 different trays a heart shaped and a rose shaped
10-15 drops of lavender essential oil – $11.99 – Whole Foods (you will be using this oil in most of the projects)
2 cups Epsom Salts – $4.39 CVS
10-15 drops Lavender Essential oil – $11.99 Whole Foods
8-10 drops Cosmetic Grade Soap Colorant, purple – $4.99 Michael’s Crafts
Combine all ingredients and mix until combined well
Add more colorant until you are satisfied with the color
Add more essential oil until you are satisfied with the smell
I packed the salt into small mason jars, and decorated the jars with twine.
That’s all today folks
