Making Colored Bath Salts Recipe

Beautiful and cheap bath salts for any occasion.

Supplies needed:

  • hot glue gun (optional)
  • scrap material (optional)
  • food coloring
  • Ad

  • 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)


  1. Put 1 cup of Epsom salts in each baggie depending on how many colors you want.
  2. 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.
  3. When you have made enough to fill your container just funnel in and layer and even tilt your bottle for a cool effect.
  4. 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.

I like to use dead sea salt for this, although a little more expensive. Have also mixed DS salt with epsom salt. If grains are too big for what I want, I put them in my coffee bean grinder, works great.
