"Escape into tranquillity and pamper yourself and give to friends that need to unwind. Epsom salts will soothe tired muscles, while gently softening the water for a luxurious bath experience. Glycerin a skin moisturizer can be found at health food stores, some drug stores, or major department stores depending on where you live. Its also available on the Internet. I used Epsom, salt but feel free to use Sea and or Kosher Salt. I made this for my DD's Bridal shower as favors. I upped the recipe to 20 pound of salts. Placed yellow and blue (wedding colors) salts in 50 wine glasses topping with plasic wrap which you can't see and then topped with satin trimmed toule held on with thank you ribbon. Optional: I also placed whole vanilla pods with some salt in a coffee grinder till fine. The aroma's are heavenly!"

"I made 1/2 batch with 1 C epsom salts and 1 C kosher salt. Also used 2 T coconut oil and 2 T glycerin. I've tried the dried lavender b4, but it's a real mess in the tub. For fragrance, I used a lavender/peppermint/rosemary oil mix with a purple coloring. It turned out beautiful! Giving as a gift to my grandma for her b-day."
"to chef prissy: glycerin can be found in the first aid section of drug or grocery stores. also sometimes by the baking supplies as it's occasionally used as a sweetener. lavender can often be found in bigger health food stores. it's also very easy to grow yourself and dry the flowers. it can live almost anywhere. a Chinese herbal supplier would also have it"
"These came out so great! Thanks for the wonderful recipe. I'm going to use these for christmas gifts"
"I have made up someting quite similar, but I do use different essential oils. All the ingredients will help heal and soften the skin and if you use it before bed, lavender is excellent for a peaceful asleep. The only caution I would throw out would be the food colouring. I have super sensitive skin, so this would be a "red flag" for me...so use caution to who you would give it to"
"Great idea for Xmas gifts. Can't wait to make it. Not sure about where to get some of the ingredients like glycerin or dried lavender. Anyone have an idea? Thanks for the idea. Prissy"
