I really do love this time of year. Yes, I'm the person already humming Christmas carols and will be until the new year. Then the winter sucker punches me in the face and I shiver until spring, which at the time seems to be an eternity! But hey! Its a small, no actually medium price to pay for how awesome Canada is to live in! So until I decide to be a snowbird, I'm always on the hunt for ways to stay cozy and warm.
Baths! Yep! Its the only thing really that will take that great Canadian chill away in the heart of the winter. Since Christmas is literally everywhere already, I thought I'd do my best at making some gifts this year and sharing that holiday warmth.
My first batch of prezzies are Organic Bath Salts. I know I say this a lot, but these really are so easy to make and will make all your giftees feel like royalty. (I also just picked up a fanny pack that looks like a hairy beer belly which I'm so stoked to give to someone! Either way know I adore you!)
Anyway! I found these test tubes at Michael's (our local super craft store) which is always a good time btw. I picked up some epsom salts and then made a few different mixes with things I love and had around the house.
A few ideas to try!
|| Lavender is always a good idea. You can put a few drops of essential oil in as well, and then I put a couple full stems in because that just looks pretty!
|| Dried rose petals with some drops of Bergamont and Rosewood essential oil. Try adding some dried full roses near the top of the tube!
|| Eucalyptus and Rosemary. A few drops of Eucalyptus oil and some full sprigs of rosemary. Hello sooth me!
|| Food colouring and sparkles! This one is for my girls. I put a few drops of food colouring into the epsom salts and mix it altogether. Then add a few generous shake of sparkles. This one is always a hit.
Try tying them together with some twine or leather and voila! That's a pretty lovely gift wouldn't you say? Also, pretty cool as a wedding or shower favour!
I always love seeing what you're up to so feel free to share #ladyhayesdiy
Big love and luck,
