One of the fun DIY projects I was assigned during my Skinny Cow Wocave Mission was a make your own bath salts kit I received from Herban Crafts. I have to say that I haven’t done anything like this before and it was so much fun! I think this Herban Crafts kit would make a great gift. Here is how to make your own bath salts.
Materials: (provided in your kit)
- Lavender buds
- Sea salt
- Baking Soda
- Citric Acid
- Mixing Bowl
- Sieve or strainer
- Metal or plastic spoon
- Jars (2 provided in your kit)
The kit came with everything I needed except for the equipment.
First, I ground half of the lavender buds provided in a blender (about .25 ounces) for one minute.
Next, I placed the ground lavender buds and sea salt into a mixing bowl.
I strained the baking soda with a strainer to remove the lumps and placed it into the bowl.
I mixed well, and then added the rest of the lavender buds until they were evenly blended.
I put them in the two containers provided, and had enough to place more in another jar.
I decorated the jars with my ribbon, twine, and burlap.
Here are a couple after photos. These were such a fun and easy homemade gift to make. The kit is perfect for the crafter at heart.
