Candy Corn Bath Salts!


Hello, hello!!

Today I am sharing a really fun gift you could make for your friends, teachers, or for visiting teaching.  It took about 5 minutes to throw these together and was really inexpensive as well.

I give you...

Candy Corn Bath Salts!!


If you have never made your own bath salts, you should DEFINITELY give them a try!!  They are so easy to make, and you can choose any scent you want.  I am slightly addicted to baths, I literally take one almost every night.  My favorite thing to do is get a tub full of warm water, dump in some yummy-smelling salts, grab a good read...and RELAX!!
 

All you need to make your very own bath salts are some Epsom Salt, VERY course Sea Salt, essential oil of your choice, and food coloring.  

I told you...easy!!

First up, you want to separate your salts into 3 bowls.  A good rule is to do half and half with your salts. So however much you put in of one, just put in the same amount of the other.  For one mason jar I did 3 bowls with 1/2 C of Epsom Salt and Sea Salt.



Once you have your salts mixed you add a few drops of essential oil.  For our Candy Corn Bath Salts I chose to use Vanilla, I thought that was the most candy-like ;)


Finally you want to add 1-2 drops of food coloring to the bowls.  Don't do any more than that or you may stain your friend ;)


Once you are all done just layer the different colors in the jar, embellish with little bakers twine, and you have a darling, handmade gift ready to go!

And I just have to add...I realize that candy corns usually have the yellow on bottom. For some reason that just never looks as good to me as having orange on bottom :)  So feel free to switch it up however looks better to you!


Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you saw something you liked!  Let me know if you try these out at your place...can you think of any scents that you would use for Candy Corn?? ;)

Linking up at THESE great parties!
