Talking Wow!

These are great resources...

Here's my contribution:

(Fancy Bath Salts; my sister gave it the name below)

Relaxation Potion
1 part Baking Soda
2 parts Epsom Salts
Lavender Essential Oil - until you reach the desired scent
Eucalyptus Essential Oil - until you reach the desired scent
Rosemary Essential Oil - until you reach the desired scent

You can add colorant as well. I suggest the one available at M's.

I usually just leave mine white. It's the scent that I love... don't need any color.

I usually put two or three times the amount of lavender than the eucalyptus and/or rosemary.

Mix all the ingredients in a metal bowl with a metal spoon and spoon into your jars... you can use anything from pint on up

It is so lovely. Maybe it can be grouped in a basket with other bath items: a washcloth, lotion, etc.

wow, I think all my ideas have already been posted so if they are repeats so sorry.....I'm also thinking there are mixes out there that you can make a bunch and then scoop enough into a pint jar--so portion sizing--like for drink mixes, seasonings etc

jam---homemade freezer jam is the best stuff ever

Texas Cornbread Mix

DILL DIP

3/4 cup dill weed
3/4 cup accent (optional)
3/4 cup season salt
3/4 cup onion flakes
3/4 cup parsley flakes

Combine all and place in a container. The pint size jelly jars would be perfect here . To use: combine with 1 cup sour cream and one cup Miracle Whip in a small bowl AND 3TBS of your dip mix. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours to allow the flavors to blend. This makes an excellent vegetable dip as well as one for chips.

INSTANT SPICED TEA

2 cups powdered orange breakfast drink
1-1/2 cups sugar
3/4 cup instant tea
2 packages unsweetened lemonade mix
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Mix the ingredients and put them into a plastic container or double plastic bag. Label the mix "Spiced Tea. Add 2 heaping teaspoons to 1 cup boiling water."

Cafe Swiss Mocha Flavored Coffee

1/4 C. Powdered Creamer
1/3 C. Sugar
1/4 C. Instant Coffee
2 T. Powdered Baking Cocoa

Process in a blender on liquify until well blended. Store in an air tight container. Use by tablespoonfuls according to taste. Spoon in cup and add hot water.

Instant Cappucino
1 c. powdered creamer
1 c. powdered chocolate milk mix
2/3 c. instant coffee
