Project Description

Lavender is well known for its relaxing smell. It’s no wonder it’s commonly used in products meant to calm and soothe.

This project is made with Lavender 40/42 Essential Oil. This recipe uses a combination of Epsom salt and pink sea salts. Interestingly, Epsom salt is not actually a salt at all! Epsom salt is made of hydrated magnesium sulfate. Magnesium and sulfate are known for their hydrating properties, making Epsom salt a popular choice for bath salts.

Pink Himalayan sea salt is a rock salt mined from ancient salt beds within the Himalayan Mountains. Protected from pollution and impurities since its formation 200 million years ago, pink Himalayan salt is believed to be one of the purest forms of salt available. The color of sea salts range from white to a deep shade of pink. This recipe uses two sizes of pink sea salt (medium and coarse) to give texture, but you can use only one size if you prefer.
