Candy Cane Bath Salts Gift in a Jar:
Pretty layered bath salts make a perfect gift and are a seasonal treat.
12 tall jelly (12-ounce) canning jars with lid and rings
2 Carton Epsom salts, 4 pound (approximately 16 cups)
4 Pound sea salt or kosher salt (approximately 6 cups)
1⁄2 Teaspoon glycerin, divided
12 Drop peppermint essential oil
12 Drop red food color
2 pieces cardstock (for tags)
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.
