For The Bath


This scent is very woody, and is suited for soothing your muscles and relaxing in the tub. It is very masculine in scent, but women love it too. Try this after a long day at work, it makes you feel comfortable and content.

2 tablespoons of baking soda
essential oils:
5 drops of rosewood
2 drops cedar wood
2 drops Chamomile
a nice jar with a tight fitting lid

To make the salts:
Mix the salts and baking soda in a bowl very well.
Mix oils in a small cup. Take them and pour them evenly over the salt.
Mix the two very well.
Let sit for over an hour before placing in a jar and sealing.

Bake the cookies for 10 minutes, until they are lightly browned. Do not over bake. Allow the cookies to cool completely. To use, drop 1 or 2 cookies into a warm bath and allow to dissolve. Do not eat! Yield: 24 cookies, enough for 12+ baths.
