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!
