This is a fun project that is also very easy and requires no skill at all. You can make them with any scent and in any color that you wish. This also makes a nice gift or adds a nice decorative touch to your own bathroom.
- salt ( You can use epsom salts, sea salt, table salt, and even rock salt if you don’t mind pulverizing it in your blender or food processor.)
- food color
- oil scents ( You can purchase these online or at most hobby stores.)
- airtight container or ziplock bag for storage
Step 1. Pour salt into bowl and add drops of scented oil directly to the salt. The amount you use varies depending on the amount of salt and how strong you want the bath salts to smell. I used about 8 drops in mine.
Step 2. Add food coloring to the salt using less for a lighter shade and more for a darker shade. I used about 6 drops in mine.
Step 3. Stir the scent and food coloring into the salt until it is very well blended. I let the grandkids do the stirring for me and they probably did a better job of it than I usually do.
Step 4. I added some petite baby roses for looks.
Step 5. I chose a jar with a small neck and I couldn’t find my funnels so I made one from a sheet of paper. Then I used it to pour the bath salts into the jar.
Step 6. I made a tag using a paper tag with string. I used a fine tip sharpie and then glued on a fabric rose but you can use your imagination and have fun with it. I added a loofah sponge and some homeade soap and then put it all in gift basket to give as a gift.
I grew some loofah sponges this summer and am in the process of drying them. I will do a project in the near future showing you how to grow and harvest your own. It is really fun! I will also show you an easy way to make your own soap.
