I was feeling a little creative this afternoon and had a few minutes before Abbi got off the bus, so I decided to do a quick craft to put in the bathroom.
First, I gathered my ingredients: Sea Salt, Lavender Essential Oil (any scent will do!), a smooth stone from the back yard, a mixing bowl, and a plate for display.
Pour about 1/4 cup of sea salt in the mixing bowl. Add 5-7 drops of essential oil and stir well to distribute the oil in the salt.
Pour the salt onto the display plate. Rub a little bit of oil on the surface of the stone before placing it in the center of the display plate.
The amazing thing about this craft is that it makes the room smell FABULOUS. If you want to refresh the scent, simply stir the salt up a bit and it will release more fragrance into the air.
Rather than throwing away this "potpourri," feel free to dump it in the tub the next time you take a bath, or moisten the stone and use it as an exfoliant on your hands, feet, or face. It also makes a thoughtful and beautiful display if you're expecting guests.
