      I finally managed to find orris root chips, and let me tell you, the smell is worth the hunt! This a very subtle mixture with everything blending beautifully and all the ingredients compliment each other nicely. Did I mention it felt really good, too? I spooned the mixture into muslin bags (got 9 of them) and used 2 in the bath, tying them to the drain chain. If you let your bags float in the water, the ingredients aren't going to disperse properly. I will definitely be making this one again; I love it!

      This is a bath I enjoyed using. It left my skin feeling silky, soft and very smooth besides feeling clean and good, ofcourse! Since I did not have orrisroot chips, I used a little more cornflour instead(since I've learnt that they can be substituted). However, on the instructions to use this bath, I've made a note to use a few drops of jasmine essential oil(I adore the scent of this oil!) for a wonderfully romantic bath!:)I've made a batch of this for gift-giving to a very dear friend of mine. Thanks so much for sharing!
