Make these aromatic bath salts for a cherished friend

Make these aromatic bath salts for a cherished friend

Sometimes it really is the thought that counts, so put some thought to it! xo

There are some days that jump up and surprise us. A forgotten birthday arrives, a special going away gift, a thank you, or a simple, I’m glad you’re my friend occasions arrive. And, right now, it is not easy to hope into the car and go gift shopping. I know I am one the folks who chose to avoid going out right now, so I have come to rely upon myself and the grace of my charming familiar to get my tasks and needs done.

I have a recipe for a darling little trio of bath salts or dresser sachets, and I bet you have the same items or close enough, to pull this off yourself. (Why a trio, you ask? The Goddess, darling, the triple goddess that is!)

Here is a fun and purposeful gift, so sweet, in fact, you may want to make an extra or two for yourself!
Blessings of the Great Creatrix, for I see her light shines in you, as she shines within me!

 

Blessed Be!

Priestess Tina
