  • • 1 Cup epsom salt
  • • 1 tbsp. baking soda
  • • 3 drops scented essential oil

  • - ( I used treat bags that you use for goodie bags at birthday parties) 
  • • optional: 1 – 2 drops of  food coloring  {to slightly tint the bath salts}
  • • ribbon or twine 
  • - I used twist ties 

  • • Mix together epsom salt, baking soda, essential oil drops, and optional food coloring.  Stir well.
  • • Transfer to jar, and tie a bow with a pretty ribbon or some twine.

  • [*] add approx. 1/2 cup of bath salts to your bath.  Relax and ENJOY!!
