When a member of our family celebrates a birthday, that festivity does not only last one day, but several. We share multiple meals, eat a plethora of desserts and of course exchange a multitude of presents.
As I’m sure many of you know, the little ones in our lives are always making gifts for others. Whether it be a drawing, a hand-strung necklace, a small piece of fabric that is a “mini blanket,” my girls are always at the ready to shower any birthday celebrant with many a gift. Because of this, I am always trying to find new and creative ideas for gifts that the recipient can actually use, yet my kids can make as well.
Well in one short day a special lady in our life is celebrating her birthday and the girls and I found the perfect gift idea…bath salts. It is very cost effective, very useful (especially when the birthday girl is quite the athlete), and is very easy and fun to make with the kids!
The basic recipe is as follows:
1 cup Epsom salt
1 cup course sea salt
20 drops of essential oil of your choosing
Any glass jar with a lid (We reused an old honey jar.)
