You can create many homemade gifts from our lavender flower buds for your friends and yourself. You can make bath bags, bath salts, bath fuzzies, bath oils, soap, sachets, salves, lotions, tea bags, dream pillows, and so many more.
One of my favorite is bath salts. It’s super easy to make, and it makes your bath relaxing and very calming. Here’s a simple recipe:
•2 cups Epsom salt or Dead Sea salt
1 teaspoon ground or whole lavender flower buds
•2 tablespoons of your favorite carrier oil (sweet almond, apricot kernel, olive oil)
•10-15 drops Lavender essential oil
Few drops of food color (opt.)
In a medium-sized glass mixing bowl, add salt and carrier oil and mix well. Add essential oils and food color, mix. Lastly, add flowers and stir lightly. Store in an airtight glass container.
Fill tub with very warm water, add 1-3 tablespoons of your homemade bath salts. Slip into the fragrant bath up to your neck, and enjoy!
