DIY Gifts: Bath Salts and Sugar Scrub


When we went on a birthday trip to Oklahoma back in August, my aunt brought her essential oils.  We had fun making some bath salts and sugar scrub.

They would make great gifts for friends and loved ones.  I actually loved using both of these myself, too!

Let’s start with the bath salts.IMG_9692.JPGYou need Epsom salt, sea salt, baking soda, ylang ylang, lavender and food coloring.IMG_9722.JPGPour salts into a bowl.
