I'm Marcy Lautanen-Raleigh growing herbs is a passion I've had for more than 20 years now. The Backyard Patch is my own herb business started in 1995. I specialize in fresh, amazing, organic blended herbs. Those for cooking, tea and bath -- and they are all home-grown and hand-blended. In the last 20 years I have gained a knowledge of herbs and their flavors that I share here.
Tis' the season for cookies, so why not make some for the bath also! This recipe makes 10-12 cookies depending on size. And bath cookies make fantastic gifts any time of the year.
2 cups of sea salt or rock salt
1/2 cup Baking soda
1/2 cup Cornstarch
2 Tbls.of Almond oil
1 tsp Vitamin E oil
6 drops Essential oil ( I recommend cinnamon, basil, rose or lemon to keep with a cookie theme)
Mix all the ingredients together in a
bowl until moistened. You can roll out the cookie dough on a floured surface or roll the dough into 1 inch balls. Cut the cookies out with cookie cutters or flatten balls to form a
cookie shape. Bake at 350 degrees F for 10-12 minutes. Allow to cool. Wrap these in air tight packaging or seal them in an airtight container. These cookies will keep for 3 to 4 months maybe longer.
You can sprinkle the tops with cinnamon, lemon peel, or even chocolate chips. To Use: Place 1-2 cookies per
bath by adding them to running warm water. Be clear in the packaging these are are for the bath not the mouth!
