CRAFTSEco-Art Crafts Made by You
Donna Weeks, an herbalist in Laytonsville, Maryland, contributed the following recipes for bath salts and perfume oils. She grows organic herbs for medicinal, cooking and cosmetic purposes and teaches others how to use them.
Mix the salts and baking soda. Blend ingredients with a wooden spoon or in the blender (for a finer texture). Add essential oils drop by drop, until you like the scent's intensity.
(Optional) To tint the mixture, add two drops of food coloring and mix well.
Scoop the bath salts
Mix ingredients well and, using the funnel, pour into the bottle. May be used as perfume, a face moisturizer or massage oil.

Decoupage on trays, cans, wooden boxes, etc
Collage: Paste map on thin cardboard along with other objects from the map region. Personalize by circling meaningful areas with broad markers.
