I never let anything go to waste – especially dried flowers.  Between my lavender tablescape and snipping old blooms from my potted lavender, I have plenty of dried lavender around.  Why not use it for a well deserved relaxing bath? This lavender mint bath salts recipe is perfect for softening skin.
Bath soak ingredients
Using items I already had including a canning jar, sea salt, dried lavender, spearmint essential oil {from  my rosemary mint scrub} and espom salts I purchased for just $1 at the grocery store, I made beautifully scented and softening bath salts in just a few minutes! Here’s the recipe to make your own, perfect for an evening of relaxation or gifting a friend.
Step 1: Add a layer of sea salt in your jar

Step 2: Fill the jar with epsom salts, leaving a little room.  Break lavender buds apart and add.  I used about 5, providing plenty of scent and color.
