I am super excited to have completed the first month of this year long challenge, and tomorrow I get to see the woman who helped inspire me on my journey when she comes back to her old office to share about her experience. She just completed her year, and you can check out her fabulous projects at http://365creativedresses.blogspot.com/.
That being said, I am also terribly exhausted. I have been fighting insomnia all week, and it is taking its toll on me. The exhaustion played a roll in determining what today’s project was going to be.
I actually found the recipe for these bath salts on Pinterest a while ago and knew that I wanted to make them. I am thinking that a warm bath with these might help me get some restful sleep. And, if it doesn’t work, it still gave me a fun project for the day.
To make them, I combined 1 1/2 cups of Epsom salts with 1/2 cup of sea salt. I then mixed in a couple of tablespoons of coconut oil to complete the tropical feel. After mixing it all together, I transferred it to this canister that I decorated with a couple of sea horses cut using my Cricut.
I do realize that the connection to the sea is a bit tenuous on this one, but it does use Sea salt and coconut, so I felt like it was a strong enough connection. What do you think?
