Yesterday, I took a class at The Nova Studio -- a great local place for taking all kinds of classes, mostly devoted to making your own bath and body products.
I made bath salts and two salt scrubs:
We actually don't have a bathtub, so I made the bath salts for Bill's mom. It's lavender, which is her favorite fragrance. Am I the only one in the world who doesn't like the smell of dried lavender? Blech. I think she'll really like it, though.
I'm a big fan of salt scrubs and I used one of these this morning. It worked great -- my skin is very soft today! I love being able to make my own, as salt scrubs are kind of spendy, but the ingredients are pretty reasonable. Also, this way I can pick my own scents. :)
The green one came out a bit more fluorescent than I had intended. The original product was yellow-ish and when I added blue dye, I got something radioactive looking. But it smells good and it works, so yay!
