Things You Will Need
Make Your Own Bath Cookies
This is what you will need:
Cute cookie cutters (small)
2 cups of sea salt (get the fine kind if you can)
1/2 cup cornstarch
1/2 cup baking soda
a tablespoon of fine lavender
2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
A couple of vitamin E capsules, you can get these from the vitamin sections of a drug store or the grocery store (this is great for the skin, and you can open them to get the oil)
8 - 10 drops of essential oil. I personally like the lavender, as it is relaxing and just makes you feel great. You can get essential oil in health food stores or sometimes in the drug stores. Remember it is strong, and you only need a few drops to get the effect.
To make bath cookies, you will need to get yourself into the kitchen, just like you are baking cookies and preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Then mix together the sea salt, corn starch and the baking powder . Mix in the lavender, then mix in the two eggs, vegetable oil and break open the vitamin E capsules and mix the contents in. Then add the essential oil drops, and mix until you have a dough ball.
Sprinkle additional cornstarch on a rolling board and rolling pin (to stop everything from sticking) then roll the dough out to about one inch thick. Take some cute cookie cutters and cut out shapes for your bath cookies.
Then take your bath cookies and put them on a baking sheet (no greasing here)
Bake for about 10 minutes. Let them cool right down before storing, then put them in a tin with a good fitting lid.
There are many great bath recipes out there, but something about making your own bath cookies feels great. So, if you like to bake, then have fun with these. Just make sure they are really cool and dry before you store them, and then store your bath cookies in a cookie tin and keep somewhere cool.
Use one or two bath cookies for your tub, place them under the running water, and your skin will feel great!. Creating products from bath recipes, such as these bath cookies make great gifts for your friends and family too! You can get really cute looking cookie cutters now, and you can experiment with the herb (lavender) and the essential oils to create other great scents.
