An Aromatic Mineral Bath
It's that time of the year again. Yes, the holiday season is upon us! It's gift giving time so dust off your recipe books and craft manuals and see what you can come up with for friends and family.

There's nothing like a warm bath to ease the aches and pain of the season, so this week I'll share an Aromatic Mineral Bath recipe with you.

If affordability is what you seek, here's an exquisite holiday gift idea to add to your list. Today we'll compose an aromatic gift bag overflowing with homemade mineral bath tablets! Fizzy, healing, and easy to use, anyone can appreciate the chance to renew their spirits and refresh their soul by adding these refreshingly fragrant effervescent bath tablets to a warm and relaxing bath. And whether they want a sensual, relaxing, or energizing escape, your loved ones will appreciate the selection of three fragrances to suit their moods!

What You Will Need for One Batch:

  • 1/2 C. Baking Soda
  • 1/2 C. Cornstarch
  • 1/2 C. Citric Acid
  • Crushed, Dried Flowers (chamomile, lavender, jasmine)
  • Your Aromatic Blend (see recipes below)
  • Small Cookie Cutters in Your Favorite Shapes

To Make Your Bath Tablets:
  • Prepare your aromatic blends by combining the essential oils small jars.
  • Place the cookie cutters on waxed paper. Do not grease them with petroleum jelly!
  • In a large glass bowl, mix together the baking soda, cornstarch, and citric acid.
  • Add the aromatherapy blend of your choice, and the crushed dried flowers. Mix well.
  • Using a spray-mist bottle, gently mist the mixture, blending as you go until they just hold together. Be careful not to overmist, as the mixture will fizz prematurely!
  • Press the damp mixture into the cookie cutters to form. Place your hand or a piece of cardboard over the mold and flip over to gently remove the solid form. Let dry overnight.
  • Gently toss two tablets into the bathwater and enjoy the bubbles and fizz and the delightful aroma! Soak for at least 15 minutes and embrace the moment. Deeply breathe the uplifting fragrance and allow your worries to wash away!
