What you need

1 cup Epsom salts

4-5 drops Food Coloring

3-5 drops Essential oils


Bath salts are very easy to make.

For a frugal alternative to Epsom salts you can use a fine grade pool rock salt. Just substitute the Epsom salts in all our bath salt recipes for frugal pool salt.

Add all the ingredients together and mix well.

Make sure the food color blends in to the salt or it won’t look very inviting. You can do this by tossing the salt over and over again.

Add dried rose petals, or lavender sprigs for a natural presentation.

Add your bath salts to a decorative jar and place a small wooden spoon inside for a great inexpensive gift.
