Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and I’ve been brainstorming ways to show my mom just how much I appreciate her. While there’s nothing wrong with going out and buying the perfect gift, there’s just something special about giving your mom a handmade gift on this holiday in particular. If your mother is like mine, chances are she could use some well-deserved rest and relaxation. This year, my team and I put together a sweet little Mother’s Day DIY to help our moms kick back and relax. This salt and lavender oil bath soak recipe is the perfect gift for all of the mamas out there that could use a little me time. And, it’s quite simple, with only four steps! Here’s how to make this relaxing lavender-infused bath soak.      

Epsom salt (about 1/2 cup for 1 small jar)
Lavender essential oil
Fresh lavender sprigs
Small Mason jars 

1. Pour Epsom salt into a small mixing bowl. Sprinkle 5-6 drops of lavender essential oil into the Epsom salt.

2. Crush the fresh lavender and sprinkle it into the bowl. Mix ingredients well.

3. Pour mixture into Mason jar and seal.

4. Decorate however you want! We tied little gift tags around ours with twine and added a fresh sprig of lavender.
