Creative Tuesdays: week #4, Homemade Bath Salts

Here is this week’s Creative Tuesday activity: homemade bath salts. (With a guest appearance from my inner perfectionist.)

I used epsom salts; dried rosemary, sage and lavender from my garden; and fine essential oils of lemon, orange and patchouli (Ahimsa oils).

Rosemary, sage and lavender are all good ‘muscle oils’. Lemon, orange and patchouli are all good for them mind.

This was such an easy thing to do and I almost felt like I cheated a bit with this activity. (Which is complete rubbish, of course, and just my inner perfectionist telling me that if it’s not ‘difficult’ then it can’t really be ‘valuable’… she’s full of nasty stuff like that, my perfectionist.) I’m really pushed for time this week, and I’ve never done it before, so it was a great one to do in an intense week when I still wanted to challenge myself and keep my commitment to my weekly goal. (So I now hereby tell my perfectionist to go find something productive to do because ‘yay me, I created something!’)

And if you want to make your own, all I can say is this smells divine! And, I get to enjoy a long soak in the bath with them!

    Good on you for sticking to your weekly goal Josephine! Life is so frenetic at this time of the year and it so easy to just go “nah, haven’t got time for that.” I know because that’s what I’ve been saying. Thanks for inspiring us all with your commitment to creativity….I will try the bath salts….hopefully some of your dedication will rub off on me:-)

    You are an inspiration. What a fantastic idea. Creating something once a week is such a simple idea with great benefits. We just need a reminder sometimes otherwise it never happens.
    Also, at the start of the year I read your book and absolutely loved it. I sent you a comment referring to how it was like reading a maeve binchy book. Well I have taken further inspiration from you, even though I didn’t know it at the time, I have just started my own herbal tea range. I would love to send you some to thank you for your amazing book and to assist with your clear thinking and creativity whilst writing your next book. Have a lovely Christmas.
