In a large glass or metal bowl, stir together:
2 cups Epsom Salts OR Sea Salt (You can also use one cup of each) Do NOT use table salt as it will dry the skin!
1 – 2 teaspoons of baking soda (optional, but it makes the skin soft)
10 – 12 drops of essential oil (You can use Eucalyptus, Vanilla, Lavender, etc. and they’re available at craft stores)
Add a few drops of water based food coloring, a drop or two at a time while stirring
The more you stir, the more the scent of the essential oils comes through. This one is Eucalyptus. Stir at least 2 minutes. These bath salts were tinted green, as I said before. Instead of painting the lid, which I normally do, I added Kiwi Kiss Satin Ribbon, a Scallop Circle Punched circle, layered flowers, and a Rhinestone Brad. I also made the tag with a Sizzix die, and I stamped it and sponged it. Finally, I used Rub-ons from a retired Level 3 Hostess Bundle to add, "Enjoy" to the bottle.
Right when I started adding my "Green" Hostess Gift to this post, I decided to use some Easter colored M&M's and decorate another bottle for my Secret Sister for Easter. This one is basically the same as the other one except for the colors, and, instead of Rub-ons, I used a sticker that I stamped with the "Happy Easter" sentiment. Both tags have sentiments on them from the "Yummy" 2009 Sale-A-Bration set. That promotion is over, so the set is no longer available. Thanks for visiting my blog today!!!
