A Quick Gift

Super quick, super easy gift!

Herbal Bath Salts
Here's what you'll need per gift:

1 half-pint canning jar
1 cup epsom salts
About 6 drops of essential oil (I used rosemary and then lavender separately)
A pinch of the herb whose oil you chose

Pour about 1/2 of the salt in the canning jar.  Add the drops of essential oil and a pinch of the herb that corresponds.  Fill with remaining salt and screw on the lid.  Shake the jar until the herbs are distributed throughout and the scent is fairly pungent when you open the lid.

Done!  (Easy to mix up for yourself right before a bath, too)

That is a great idea. I saw another post about canned foods and am way too behind for that one. But this I could totally do!
