I go to a local MOPS group and we do fun crafts. One site they get ideas from is http://www.diynetwork.com, just go to the craft area. And I have used for bath salts this site: http://www.pioneerthinking.com. It made great Christmas gifts to give out! Have fun!! (04/25/2006)
I agree with mobo--Pioneer thinking is the greatest site that I have found and use for making my own natural products and they really are good. Have made many of my own face and skin care products. Have fun! (04/25/2006)
There are recipes ranging from homemade bath salts to homemade weed killer. They have it all. (04/25/2006)
You will need:
Combine rock salt with ten drops of essential oil. Use funnel to pour salt mixture into bottle; cork bottle tightly.
Sparkling Bath Gel:
For bath gel, you will need:
Mix gel and lanolin with a small amount of glitter. Use funnel to pour mixture into bottle. Cork bottle tightly.
Silky Bath Oil:
You will need:
Mix oils together. Place desired dried items in bottle. Note: If using a bottle with a narrow neck, soak dried items in oil mixture before placing them in bottle. Pour oil mixture into bottle; cork bottle tightly.
Fragrant Bath Tea Bags:
For tea bags, you will need:
Using equal parts, mix chamomile blossoms with mint leaves or lavender. For each tea bag, center one square of organza over one square of tulle. Place 1/4 cup of desired tea mixture in center of squares. Gather edges of squares around tea. Wrap an 8" length of trim several times around gathers. Know ends to secure. To use: Place one bag in bathtub under warm running water.
Scented Bath Salts
Make your own bath salts in your favorite scents. Use plain rock salt and add a few drops of essential oil. Lavender and rose work really well. Bottle the salts up in pretty jars or other containers for unique and inexpensive gifts. BE sure to make your bath salts a few weeks ahead of time to allow the oil to thoroughly scent the salts. Write a little homemade tag with the simple instructions: Place a few tablespoons of bath salts under the faucet as you draw your bath.
Caution: Individuals with diabetes should be careful when using bath salts. (04/25/2006)
http://www.candlesandsupplies.com/soapprojects.html and they have the citric acid it requires for a very reasonable price, 4 lbs. for $9.00 and the recipe only requires 1/2 cup (that's a lot of bath fizzes) Their turn around time is very fast too! (01/14/2007)
