In my quest for making home made Christmas gifts this year I searched the internet high and low for ideas and found some great ones.
I have begun with home made rose bath salts and rose bubble bath. The recipe was simple and putting together the finished product was even more fun.
I hope that the ladies on my gift list enjoy them!
Recipe for Bath Salts
Ingredients: Baking soda, Sea salt or table salt, Epsom salts, Essential oil(s) of your choice (I used Rose), Food coloring, Large mixing bowl, spoon and Measuring cup.

After I made the salts I placed them in jars from the kitchen. I placed the bubble bath in travel 3 oz bottles that I purchased from Wal-mart. I chose the hot pink to go with my rose theme.
Because the lids on the jars were various colors I spray painted them gold. I made labels using a handy packet of decorative papers that I found at Michaels. Found in the scrapbooking aisle, they are supposed to be used to back photos but they are handy for any paper project. I used two different papers per label and punched a hole in the corner. I fastened the labels on the bottles with left over ribbon that I had in various shades of pink. If you have the space, hang on to nice ribbon that you get on gifts and packages. Even the smallest bits can come in handy!
I made a bow with the main ribbon and then placed "bits" of coordinating ribbons and raffia to make it look a little less traditional.
To complete this bath and beauty present, I have a few more goodies to make and might plan on purchasing bath "poofs" or another bathroom accessory as long as the price is right!
