I love this scent combination when my body is feeling tired. But buying it at the store is much too expensive. So I figured out how to make my own eucalyptus spearmint blend. I placed the salts in a jar I painted with dots. It's all green, in honor of my spring fever.
Approximate Time: 5 minutes
1 cup Epsom salt
1/4 cup baking soda
3 drops spearmint essential oil
3 drops eucalyptus essential oil
2 drops green food coloring
Pour the salt and baking soda in a small bowl. Mix together.
Add essential oils and mix well.
Split the mixture into two even batches.
Place the second half in a separate bowl. Add food coloring to bowl and mix well.
Tilt a glass jar and pour a little of the plain salt in. Pour some green salt in. Repeat switching until the bottle is full. This will give you the neat, multi wave effect.

Yup! As long as you only use a little food coloring, 2 drops, in the batch, it doesn't stain. Since the non-colored salt will also be mixing with the green when you pour it out, it helps dilute the color even further.
