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