A busy day... with the making of bath salts

Rose Petal Bath Salts, recipe here.
Layered with the salts and rose petals.
We put a few drops of rose geranium essential oil on the petals
and a little in the milk salt mixture.

Epsom Salts and Baking Salt 2:1 Ratio
Lavender oil, as many drops as were needed for the 
amount of fragrance we desired.
Layered with salts and lavender. 

Tea Tree Oil with oatmeal (quick cook kind), 2:1 ratio of 
Epsom salts and baking soda. 
Also made a milk salt bath (same ratios as the rose petal one)
with chamomile layers, with hints of citrus, sandalwood and rose.
Chamomile was put with vanilla extract with a pipette, until it was a more
layered scent.
Also did bath salts with eucalyptus essential oils.

I drew this bath for my
friend who is staying overnight tonight.
Baths can be so restorative...

I love having a bath, but rarely take the time :( I should find more time.

Looks wonderful. I miss taking nice baths. Unfortunately my current home has a small narrow bathtub, not great for a long soak.
