Do you have a gardener in the family? Then this is the perfect gift for them, a lovely hand scrub to help git rid of all the dirt from their time in the garden.
Grind Epsom Salt in a coffee grinder until it becomes a fine powder. Blend together with Baking Soda. Add 10-20 drops essential oil, then slowly mix in water until it becomes a stiff cookie dough consistency. Roll into small balls and place on wax paper or place into moulds. Make balls about 3/4 the size of the mould as the mix will expand as it dries. If using a mould, tape it shut or use a weight to keep it closed while it dries. Once fully dry, put balls into a glass container next to the sink.
Use one ball to give your hands a good clean scrub
