I use 3 cups of Epsom salts. Place one cup in three separate bowls. Use 15 drops of food colouring in each bowl; leave one white, also. This can be done in a jar with a lid. Use green and red colouring. Add a bit of perfume, any kind, then shake the jars until all the salt is coloured. Leave lids off; let dry overnight. When dry, put into a pretty jar. You can layer them, one white, then green, and finally red. Tie the jar with a nice ribbon and add a candy cane!
Beautiful and cheap bath salts for any occasion.
- hot glue gun (optional)
- scrap material (optional)
- food coloring
- any type of jar or bottle with lid (dollar stores have really neat ones)
- Ziploc baggies
- ribbon (optional)
- Epsom salts (can be bought anywhere for about 2.00 for 5 lbs.)
- scented oils, perfume, vanilla, extracts, etc. (optional)
- Put 1 cup of Epsom salts in each baggie depending on how many colors you want.
- Add food coloring about 10 drops less or more to desired color and close and shake. If you want to add scent to it add that too, sparingly.
When you have made enough to fill your container just funnel in and layer and even tilt your bottle for a cool effect.
- You can glue cloth over your Ball jar after trimming with pinking shears or just leave plain. A ribbon and gift tag makes it complete.
These are so easy and also fun for the kiddos. This makes a great project for the kids holiday classroom parties too.
