Homemade Lavender Bath Cookies Recipe..


Hello my dears..

How are you all today?
We are having beautiful weather here in New Brunswick..
 Quite mild and sunny days..

I posted yesterday that I am hoping to start creating things for our little shop that is open for three months or so.. 

I want to enlarge my selection of homemade remedies and toiletries.. 

So... yesterday, I inspected MY IDEA BOOKS and came up with a few new ones..

I will try and share with you .. smile.. 

Here is the first one.. 



Lavender Bath Cookies.. 

They turned out lovely.. 

I had taken the recipe for vanilla cookies to Keepers last meeting but we didn't take time to make them..

Anyway, I decided to give them a try.. Although, instead of vanilla I used lavender.. 
You can use your fave oil, though..

Now that I know how great they are I hope to make several different scents.. 



Here is the recipe for you..

LAVENDER BATH COOKIES.. 
2 cups finely ground sea salt.
1/2 cup baking soda
1/2 cup corn starch
Whisk together really well..

In a separate bowl whisk together
 2 eggs beaten
 2 T. light oil like almond or canola.. 
1 tsp. Vitamin E..
I also added 1 tsp. glycerin..
Several drops of lavender essential oil or 1 tsp. vanilla fragrance.. 
(put as much oil in as you desire).. 

Blend the dry and wet together until it looks like cookie dough..

Roll gently into 1 inch balls.. 

Place on cookie sheet and bake for 7 minutes at 350 degrees..

Leave on cookie sheet for a while until they cool and then put on a rack for at least 24 hours.. 
Store in airtight containers.. 

Make tags and state that they are not to be eaten.. smile..

Directions.. 
Drop 2 cookies in warm bath and allow to dissolve slowly..

Note.. 
Don't be impatient.. 
Don't crumble your cookies or your bath will be milky.. 
Just let them dissolve on their own.. 

Makes 24 cookies...



It will be fun coming up with a package for these.. 
I want something different.. 
I use a lot of brown paper and old book pages bags and jars ... I need a new slant..
I love old mason jars so that is probably what I will use.. smile.. 
Plastic is the last option for me.. 

Oh well, I am sure there is something I can use ... Just gotta find it.. smile..

OK, dear ladies that is all for tonight..

If you have any packaging ideas please let me know.. 
I need to have time to go through Pinterest, I guess..

Take care and God bless..

  1. Hi Faye, these probably look and smell good enough to eat! I think they would look pretty in old recycled tins or even baskets lined with a napkin or hankie. xo

  6. They look very primitive in your jars! You wouldn't want anything that might crush the cookies. :)

  8. Dear Faye:
    Oh, my these must smell heavenly. Lavender and vanilla in the bath are so soothing.
    And these are so easy to make. Thank you SO much for sharing your recipe.
    Please try Martha Stewart's website for packaging ideas. She has the most remarkable templates for making packaging, there was one that used vintage images postcards, etc., I can't remember the url but just browse the site and I'm sure you'll find something. They were rectangular "boxes" with the ends that folded over each other and you used vintage postcard images. The Graphics Fairy blog has beautiful vintage images, as does The Vintage Moth blog. I hope you can find it, I will keep looking.
    Hugs,
    Susan

  14. oh those do look tasty enough to eat..I love the mason jars for those..but they would look cute in chinese boxes..(the take out boxes) with a pretty label or little cake boxes with the cellophane front so you can see inside of them..cause the do look like cookies you would purchase at your bakery..also with a pretty label or a nice purple ribbon wrapped around them with a nice tag.;)thanks for sharing the recipe.;)

  15. What a wonderful idea! I don't have glycerin or vitamin E. Do you think it would be okay without it or should I get some? I think this will make great gifts. I like the mason jar idea myself. Enjoy your day and God bless.

  17. Those sound very interesting, I've never heard of baking bath salts, though. I wish I lived close enough to visit your little store when you open it in the summer. I'm sure I would come away with lots of little goodies.
    Hugs, Cindy
