Spring Floral Bath Salts

pinksatbut Hello and happy Pink Saturday! I am linking up with Beverly at How Sweet the Sound  for the weekly Pink Saturday event. Stop on over to see Beverly and all the other pinkies.

This week I decided to make luxurious Bath Salts for Mother’s Day gifts. I had all the ingredients on hand. I had chunky sea salt, red and pink rose petals and lavender buds. I, also, had some pink/red liquid dye. (this stuff is potent, use only the tiniest drop). I also had Spring Floral scented oil. There are lots of supply sites online. I like San Francisco Herb.

In a glass bowl I dumped the sea salts and added the dot of liquid dye, then mixed thoroughly with a wooden spoon until the white salt turned pink.

I poured about a teaspoon of the scented oil and mixed it in, as well.

After that, I dumped in random amounts of red rose petals, pink rose petals and lavender. That’s it! Done!

I poured the entire amount into my apothecary jar. I plan to put some in some smaller gift jars, and little organza bags to give as gifts on Sunday.  I need to make some more to keep in the jar in the bathroom.

Cindy, you are a clever girl. These bath salts look yummy. I'm still very much enjoying the little lavender sachet you made for me. It rests in the drawer that holds my underwear. Thank you again for such a thoughtful gift.
Happy Mother's Day! ~ Sarah

MMMMMmmmm! I can just smell how heavenly your bath salts are. I have never made them, but I think I will give it a try as I look forward every evening to my soak with only the candles for light. It is my "quiet" time.
Happy Pink Saturday and Happy Mothers Day, too!

How pretty! I would love to make something like this for my bathroom. I think placing it on the counter would look stunning.
Happy Mother's Day.
