Making Bath Salts as Gifts

My friend Maribeth had a couple links of fb, one of which lead me to this great, inexpensive gift idea! (Thanks Maribeth!) The Frugal Family Fun Blog gives a great step by step illustrated instruction of what I am now posting on.

I used green food coloring and eucalyptus oil in some for variety.  

Mix 10 drops of food coloring with 3 drops of oil, add to 2 cups of epsom salts and stir.

Abram and Chloe were my big helpers on this project.  Abram really enjoyed filling up the jars and fastening the lids.  Chloe mostly hindered :-)

Here we used red food coloring and lavendar oil.  The red turned out sort of a pinkish orange.  It is kinda weird but will still make a great gift!

The third one from the left was suppose to be purple but I thought it turned out kind of grey looking.  I think the problem was that I didn't mix the 6 drops red and 4 drops blue together before I added the essential oil.  Or now that I think about it maybe I got the recipe mixed up and put in 6 drops blue and 4 drops red.  Whatever, I still liked the final outcome.
