Lemon Bath Cookies

Lemon Bath Cookies

These lemon bath cookies are a wonderful gift idea - you won't know whether to eat them or keep them.

What you need

2 cups of Sea salt or rock salt
1/2 cup Baking soda
1/2 cup Cornstarch
2 tbs of Almond oil
1 tsp Vitamin E oil
1-2 Eggs
6 Drops lemon essential oil
1/4 cup of Lemon zest


Mix all ingredients together and then cut out with cookie cutters or flatten balls to form a cookie shape.

Add the lemon zest to the top of each cookie before baking.

Bake at 350’f (180’c) for 10-12 minutes.

Allow to cool.

To use: Use 1- 2 per bath

Wrap these in air tight packaging or seal them in an airtight container as with time these cookies do go moldy.
