Another Post that is a look into my holiday gift giving. So to all my friends and family that read the blog (Hi Laura!) Christmas isn’t going to be much of a surprise. Half of my Christmas Gifts is for those Lovin Lavender. Bath Bombs, Scented Bath Salts, and scented sachets. For a how to on the bath bombs please see my Half Fail Bath Bomb Post. I repeated the same process but had better results buy using less water int he mixture.
I made 2 different bombs basically. The First is A Pure Lavender with lavender buds in it. I decided to use my lager molds and do them as half bombs with a sprinkling of flowers on the top.
Though I did have enough to make 1 small ball.
The Second ball is the Lavender Rosemary. I over watered theses ones again. As Such they were growing and growing so I bound them in elastic bands. After unmolding them I found many of the balls had actually cracked from the pressure…. oops!
I also Made Bath Salts. I don’t have instructions on this, or pictures of making it cause its so easy. I put some Epson salts and dead sea salts (only because I had them on hand, you don’t really need them) then a bunch of drops of lavender oil and some lavender buds. I mixed it all up in a bowl and stuck it in some mason jars and let it sit for a month. after that I opened it up and gave it a wiff to decided if I needed more oil, or if it was too strong (add more salts). Make to whatever strength you desire, package pretty and give.
Though I have to say as I sit here typing I realize this needs a pretty label. I would love to pick up some of the Martha Stewart Avery Labels for this but I might use some I have on hand already. If I get it done Ill let you know the results re: photo update.
Lastly is another craft that I wasn’t sure how to photograph because I was doing it at night and i needed all my hands then some. SO here are the results.
I took some thinner white cotton material i had on hand, and purple thread, with one of my machines fancy stitch patters and sewed up some lavender scented sachets for closet or clothes drawers.
