A Tween Craft--Bath Salt

Several years ago my niece made me a really neat Christmas gift--lemon bath salt. This was one of my favorite gifts, in fact I keep hinting to her about making more. Here is a recipe however to make our own bath salts.

Materials:Canning Jars
Epsom Salts
Food Coloring
Perfume or Essential Oil


  • Combine the desired amount of Epsom salts (enough to fit in your jar)
  • Add food coloring.
  • Mix well so color is even.
  • Add essential oil and mix again.
  • Spread the mixture out on a sheet of wax paper to dry for a couple of hours 
  • Now put it in the bottle or jar.
  • If you are making it for a gift you can put a pretty ribbon around the jar and you can even glue a little charm or flower on the front of the jar for decoration. 
**While the salts can be used right away, the perfume or essential oil will blend better with the salt if it is allowed to set in the jar for a few weeks.

Books related to topic--

"A deceptively easy and entertaining read, this book is filled with fascinating information, such as: Whoever controls the world's salt supply is the superpower (right now it's the US!) Salt is necessary to the functioning of our bodies--which is part of why early humans ate meat (and why we still crave salty pretzels)"  FOR PURCHASING INFORMATION 

"Workman Publishing wants Sandy Boynton's fans (who are legion) to know that we deeply regret the production problems that afflicted the first printing of BATH TIME (2007) - and we want them to know that these problems were corrected in subsequent printings. We moved the production to a different manufacturer; the inks now are fine, the covers now are fine, and the contents remain deserving of five oinks. If you take a look at the Amazon comments for BARNYARD BATH - which was released in 2008, a year after BATH TIME - you'll see that there are no complaints. Only praise. The quality problems have been solved. You can order BATH TIME and BARNYARD BATH today with confidence that the books will hold up"~Weintz   FOR PURCHASING INFO
