Welcome back... it's day 4 of the handmade gift series. I've always wanted to try to make homemade bath salts and I discovered that it couldn't be easier. I love taking baths. Especially in the winter. If I could knit in the bathtub, that would be just perfect!
To make the bath salts, you will need epsom salts, sea salt, soap coloring and a few drops of essential oils. I got the coloring and the lavender essential oil at Michael's. The salts were both at Target. There are many recipes online, but I just poured the 2 containers together and stirred them up.
Next I stirred in the color and the scent.
I had a package of Mason jars already... they each held around 2 cups. I modpodged some cute paper to the top of the jars.
I filled the jars with a small measuring cup. I had some extras that I put in a baggie for myself. (I actually tried them out and they worked great!)
I added a little polka dot bow and they are ready for gift giving!
