Bath Salts

Photobucket

I have to say that I am in a bit of shock with how kind all of you have been. And I seriously just looked at my stat counter and swear it was only at 3,000. Where have you all come from?? I have enjoyed reading all of your nice comments and am inspired to try to keep the ideas coming. Thanks for all of your support!

Now, are any of you still looking for that last minute Mother’s Day gift? What mom wouldn’t enjoy a long, quiet, no kids allowed, soak in a hot tub? These are super easy, and chances are you already have most, if not all, of the ingredients in your home. This is a recipe which my sister used to make for her friends a few years ago.

3 cups epsom salt
2 cups baking soda
1 cup table salt
Food or soap coloring
Scented essential oil

If you want more than one scent and color, separate into different bowls before adding the color and scent. Then you can have 2-3 different choices to choose from. Let the bath salts dry for 24 hours before placing them into your decorative jars.

**My sister reminded me that some essential oils are better when using on your skin than others are. Try to find the ones that contain mineral oils or natural oils and are free from acetone and drying ingredients.
