ARE WE DRY ENOUGH YET? We have really felt the hot, dry weather this summer. Because our skin and hair are so dry and have been subjected to sun and dry winds, it is time to treat ourselves. Try adding essential oils and plant materials from your garden to your bath salts and soak in the goodness. We have worked hard to keep our gardens thriving this year, so let’s enjoy the bounty. Rosemary and Lavender essential oils in bath salts will soothe sunburn, chaffing, minor cuts and insect bites. This is also a great way to share the fruits of your garden with friends and neighbors.


1 cup Epsom salts

¼ c. Lavender buds

¼ c. Rosemary leaves

20 drops of essential oil (10 drops Rosemary and 10 drops Lavender)

Mix all ingredients together in a glass bowl. Use 1⁄2 cup per bath soak. Store in an airtight glass container.
