    Default Candy Cane Bath Salts

    Candy cane bath salts are awesome whether you are just making it for yourself or if you are making it as holiday gifts. This recipe will make 12 12-oz. jars, with a little leftover for you.

    Things You’ll Need:
    12 12-oz. clear jars, like canning jars
    16 cups Epsom Salts, divided in half
    6 cups sea salt, divided in half
    1/4 tsp. glycerin for each half
    12 to 15 drops red food coloring
    12 to 15 drops peppermint essential oil
    2 large bowls

    Step1 - Put half of the Epsom Salts and half the sea salt in each of the two bowls.

    Step2 - Add 1/4 tsp. glycerin and six to eight drops peppermint essential oil to one of the bowls.

    Step3 - Add 1/4 tsp. glycerin, the food coloring and six to eight drops peppermint essential oil to the other bowl.


    Step4 - Stir both until well combined and the red ones color is as even as possible.

    Step5 - Hold the jars at an angle while you layer alternate colors of the salts into the jar. Place the lid on the jar before you stand it up straight.

    Step6 - Add a label to the top of the jar and a ribbon and you have a great gift. So, take a couple of tablespoons of the leftovers and go relax in the bath

    Can you use pepermint extract or do you need to buy essential oil? I have that in my cupboard.

    I'm not sure, but I don't think you should. It might really irritate your skin.

    Your probably right. I'll go get some essential oil. I hadn't thought of that.

    Thanks

    You can also get glycerin at a pharmacy. A little pricey but a little goes a long way.
