Below is the recipe for a quick and frugal gift. If you buy a case of pint size canning jars, this can be made in bulk. It makes a perfect hostess gift or it's good to stash away for when you need that emergency gift when someone unexpected arrives at your door!
Peppermint Bath Salts
3 cups Epsom salts
1/2 tsp pure peppermint extract
1 tsp sugar
2-4 drops red food coloring
1. Stir all ingredients together
2. Pour the salts into a jar or bottle with a reclosable top. I recommend pint canning jars.
3. Attach a label to the jar with the following instructions:
Instructions for Use:
Sprinkle a small scoop of the salts under your running bath water. Relax in the fragrant water!
These salts will keep indefinitely as long as they are stored in a sealed container. For a different take, substitute lemon extract and yellow food coloring in the ingredients.
