Bath Salts

I've been on a "Gift in a Jar" making spree lately. My most recent one I made was a birthday gift for a dear friend of mine.  I decided to make her some homemade strawberry scented bath salts. 

And, here it is

If you read my previous post about my homemade colloidal oatmeal bath... half of the bath formula called for bath salts(also homemade). But unlike that post, instead of using just two ingredients (Epsom salt & fragrant oil), I added a third ingredient... color. I did this by just adding a few drops of colorant (these are the same colorants you find in the soap section of your hobby/ craft store) to the salt & oil mixture and stir with plastic spoon as if you were mixing cookies dough...almost smashing the color into the crystals. For the intensity in my jar I added about 4 or 5 drops of colorant.  Mix till fully blended. And pour into jar or container of your choice.

For the label I used Design on Cloud 9's Artisan Labels. I sized it 3" wide by 1" high.

More jar projects are soon too come!!

But for now, I'm going to enjoying soaking in my bath tub smelling like strawberries!

Craft Happy Friends!
