Begin by collecting a glass jar, removing the label and washing and drying it thoroughly.
Mix 1/4 cup of sea salt and one cup of Epsom salts in a large bowl. The combination softens water and soothes muscles. Adding a tablespoon of finely ground regular oatmeal is optional and may help to soften skin.
Next, add two teaspoons of glycerin, a few drops of food coloring and a few drops of the essential oil of your choice into the mixture. Glycerin acts as a skin moisturizer, while liquid food coloring helps to achieve a desired color. Essential oils include lavender, mandarin orange and patchouli and add fragrance to the bath salts. Mix the contents thoroughly to ensure that they are evenly combined. Be careful not to add too much food coloring to avoid staining the bath or the person.
Decorate the glass jar with colored ribbon strips, tacky glue and raffia as desired. Allow the glue to dry before finally pouring the bath salt mixture into the glass jar. Print a label and glue it onto the jar before gifting the bath salts.Learn more about Hygiene
