Take Time to Relax

It's that busy time of year, so I thought I'd post something I created for Emma's. This is a set that would make a wonderful teacher or friendship gift. I love bath salts, salt scrubs and all kinds of shower gels. So, I thought it would be fun to try and make one. Here is a little set that I created using a recipe I found.






Spa Sea Salt Scrub Recipe (www.recipezaar.com)

2 Cups Sea Salt
1 1/3 Cups Aloe Vera Baby Oil or Soya Oil
8 Vitamin E Capsules
2 Tablespoons Honey

1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well; spoon in jar.
2. Add a bit to your hand or a bath mitt and rub all over.
3. Rinse off well.

I halved the recipe and still had a bit left over. Also, I added some Castile soap to make it into a foaming scrub. You can cut down on the baby oil if you do this. To make your own scent, use the soybean oil and add a few drops of essential oils. Play around with it to find the consistency you like. Tie a bath 'pouf' to the top of the jar and place in the gift bag.


I used mostly Crate Paper papers and die cuts.

So, create this fun treat for yourself or for someone else.
And take some time to relax this holiday season!
