Bath Salts

  • 3 cups Epsom Salts (or sea salt)
  • 1 tablespoon liquid glycerin (can be found at Kmart in the pharmacy)
  • A few drops of fragrance (or essential oils, I like to use bubble bath)
  • A few drops of food coloring

First, measure out the Epsom salts in a large bowl. Then make sure all clumps are broken up.

In a smaller bowl, (I recommend stainless steel or porcelain) use a metal or hard plastic spoon to mix together the glycerin, fragrance, and food coloring. Pour the liquid mixture into the other bowl containing the salt. You can use the spoon to mix them together, but I like to place a plastic baggie over my hand and hold it on with a rubber band to mix. That way, I make sure I get them thoroughly mixed.

  • Yields: about 3 cups
