Not to be confused with candy corn bath salts…now THAT would be a sticky mess!
Bath salts are super duper easy to make, quick and they make great gifts too.
Simply pour Sea Salt or Epsom Salts (I use Sea Salt) into a bowl and add color. Stir until the color is mixed in thoroughly. You can add a fragrance if you like but I usually don’t if I’m making gifts since so many people are sensitive to scents.
I mixed a bowl of orange and yellow for this gift.
Aren’t these cute jars? I got them for around a dollar at a local craft store.
I packed yellow in the bottom and then orange on top and followed that with plain white sea salt on the top.
You can finish the gift off with a little ribbon, a gift tag or a sticker for a label. Easy Peasy!
If you are wondering about the difference between Epsom Salts and Sea Salts I’ve put a couple of links below.
Here is an interesting bit of information from AcneTreatmentGuru.com
