Soothing Bath Salt Recipe

I’m a pushover for homemade gifts both for giving and receiving. Lavender, Chamomile, and Bergamot all offer soothing relaxing properties when both when applied to the body and inhaled; they are each known for a variety of benefits to the skin.  Orange lifts the spirits induces relaxation and reduces depression. Pine is reminiscent of the season with benefits to the respiratory system and often used in massage for stressed muscles and joints.

First, grind the herb flowers with a mortar and pestle to break them up into smaller bits.  Then mix the salts and soda together before adding the essential oil drops.
