Quick and Frugal

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.

Happy creating!!
