There’s something about being able to take a nice, hot bath that just excites me – perhaps it’s because I know I have things to throw in to make that bath an amazing place..
Or perhaps because it might be the only break I get for the entire day. 😉
I’m always thinking of things that we can gift to friends, or even teachers, and these work super for that. And Lavender Essential Oil is such a wonderful oil for skin, not to mention it’s very relaxing – so it’s the first oil I tend to lean towards when it comes to gift giving DIY’s.
We recently took the family on a road trip to New Mexico from our home in Phoenix. It was about a 5-hour drive. We stopped at Deming, New Mexico to stay (both nights) and our hotel had quite a few beautiful Lavender bushes in the parking lot.
I was in heaven.
I had to make sure they were lavender, then just before we left, I took a few twigs for myself – I know… I probably shouldn’t have. But it was hard to resist. I let them dry and used them in this DIY below.
Not only are these easy to make, they are great to give as gifts. Wrap up 2-3 and tie with a pretty ribbon.
You can throw everything in a glass Pyrex measuring cup and melt for 20 seconds at a time, 3-4 times through and everything should be ready to combine & pour.

In a glass measuring cup, add the cocoa butter and shea butter; microwave for short periods of time until melted.
Once melted, add the tea (dry) by breaking open a tea bag. Add the essential oil and dried lavender flowers and then pour into your heart mold and pop in fridge or freezer to cool.
