A little inspiration for a personalised gift using natures healing remedies to take away the winters chill. The elderflowers are anti-inflammatory and rich in antioxidants, and the lavender is a relaxant and will aid sleep.
2 cups magnesium flakes, you can also use epsom salts or himalayan salts
5 buds elderflower dried, leaves and stems removed (I picked these in the summer, but you can also buy from specialist shops)
2-3 tablespoons dried lavender
2 tablespoons of oatmeal to soothe sensitive skin (optional)
Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl
Place in desired container away from direct sunlight or heat
When ready to use, place a generous scoop into cloth tea bags, a muslin, or even a sock
Run a very hot bath, and steep in bath
Leave bath to cool with it in and then jump in when its the right temperature
Pictured here, is our bath salts in our Blantyre Jar. These salts look wonderful in a bathroom in these jars, and would make an extra special gift for someone who loves a good soak.

Our Sugar scoop and Blackwood scoop are also great for adding to a jam jar of bath salts for a smaller gift.
