Work it Wed- how to create a great gift

What girl doesn't love to pamper herself? How about giving the gift (to a friend or to yourself) of homemade bath salts.  Bath Salts are easy to make and better yet they look adorable packaged in vintage salt and pepper shakers. It's a unique and thoughtful gift... so let's work it!

How to make homemade bath salts according to Martha Stewart:

Turn a plain old soak into a real retreat with bath salts you make yourself. Start with about 4 cups of sea salt or kosher salt. Mix in several drops of an aromatic bath oil (available at bath and beauty stores) and, if you wish, dried fragrant plants, such as lavender or eucalyptus. Pour into a jar for yourself or to give as a gift. Use a few spoonfuls of salts per bath; to keep herbs from floating, spoon the mixture into a spice sachet (available at gourmet grocery stores).
