How to make it

  • Wash, rinse and dry canning jars.
  • Empty one carton Epsom Salts into large mixing bowl or batter bowl. Add 3 cups sea salt, stir well.
  • Stir in 1/4 teaspoon glycerin and 6 to 8 drops essential oil.
  • Mix well.
  • In second large mixing bowl, empty one carton Epsom Salts, and add 3 cups sea salt.
  • Stir well.
  • Add 1/4 teaspoon glycerin, 6 to 8 drops essential oil, and food color. Stir until completely blended. Color should be even.
  • Use a heavy-duty stand mixer to mix bath salts easily.
  • Set mixer to lowest setting and mix until color is even--but don't try this with hand mixers or smaller stand mixers!
  • Holding canning jars at an angle, layer salts in jars, alternating white and colored mixtures.

  • Cut gift tags and attach to jars.
  • Tags may be trimmed and placed beneath canning jar rings, tied on with ribbon, or taped to gift jars.
  • ***************************************************
  • Tip: Decorative canning jar lids or antique canning jars make these salts collectible!
  • Peach lids add a designer touch to your jars and can be found in the canning section of the supermarket.
  • ************************************************
  • This recipe makes 12 12-ounce gift jars, plus a bonus of 3 to 4 cups extra bath salts for you to keep for yourself.
  • Package them in small plastic zipper craft bags for easy use in your own baths!

    you could use 1/2 with a bath. Some only use a cap full. It's your choice. I like the smell and the softness so I use more
