Candy Cane Bath Salts in a Jar

Guest Author - Susan

Materials and Supplies for Candy Cane Bath Salts:

12 tall jelly (12-ounce) canning jars with lid and rings

2 4-pound cartons Epsom Salts (approximately 16 cups)
4 pounds sea salt or Kosher salt (approximately 6 cups)
1/2 teaspoon glycerin, divided
12 to 15 drops peppermint essential oil
12 to 15 drops red food color

2 pieces cardstock (for tags)


Instructions:

Wash, rinse and dry canning jars.

Empty one carton Epsom Salts into large mixing bowl or batter bowl. Add 3 cups sea salt, stir well. Stir in 1/4 teaspoon glycerin and 6 to 8 drops essential oil. Mix well.

In second large mixing bowl, empty one carton Epsom Salts, and add 3 cups sea salt. Stir well. Add 1/4 teaspoon glycerin, 6 to 8 drops essential oil, and food color. Stir until completely blended. Color should be even.

Use a heavy-duty stand mixer to mix bath salts easily. Set mixer to lowest setting and mix until color is even--but don't try this with hand mixers or smaller stand mixers!

Holding canning jars at an angle, layer salts in jars, alternating white and colored mixtures.

Cut gift tags and attach to jars. Tags may be trimmed and placed beneath canning jar rings, tied on with ribbon, or taped to gift jars.

Tip: Decorative red or green gingham canning jar lids, punched tin lids, or antique canning jars make these salts collectible! Find decorative canning jar lids in the canning section of the supermarket or hobby store.

This recipe makes 12 12-ounce gift jars, plus a bonus of 3 to 4 cups extra bath salts for you to keep for yourself. Package them in small plastic zipper craft bags for easy stocking stuffers!

Makes 12 gift jars.
