Honey Bath Tablets Recipe

These scented bath tablets dissolve in your warm bath creating a soothing and peaceful environment. Honey is one of my favorite bath additives all by itself. Combined with natural ingredients such as sea salt, clay or dried herbs, it will help restore moisture to the skin. I do not suggest doubling this recipe as the tablets must be molded while the mixture is still warm. I like to make different shapes for holiday gift-giving. I place a few tablets inside a clear cellophane bag and tie it closed with a festive bow. You will need a candy thermometer, as the correct temperature is critical in this recipe, and plastic candy molds or ice cube trays for shaping your bath tablets.

• 1/2 cup fine-grained sea salt or table salt
• 1 tablespoon white clay
• 1/2 tablespoon dried herb leaves or flower petals (see variations below)
• 1/2 cup pure honey

1. Place salt, clay and herb leaves or flowers in a ceramic bowl or food processor bowl.

2. Heat honey to 300 degrees. This can be done in the microwave, checking the temperature in 1-minute intervals (should take 3 to 4 minutes total); or on the stovetop, stirring honey until temperature reads 300 degrees.

3. Pour hot honey over dry ingredients and stir well. You can do this with a few pulses of your food processor.
