Winter Forest Bath Salts

Bath salts are super easy to make, and make for a nice warming bath on a cold winter's day.  Salt baths help to relax muscles, remove toxins from the body, and soften the skin.
The recipe below is so simple, so feel free to change up the colors and scents to give it your own special twist.  Try layering red and white and scenting with peppermint, or orange and green scented with orange and spearmint.  Or you could go all-out and layer with seven, eight, or more colors (kids love to do this and the results are always spectacular!)

Use this recipe as a jumping off point for your own creativity.  The recipe below makes 1 quart jar or 2 pint jars of bath salts.

Winter Forest Bath Salts
4 cups medium grain sea salt
1 teaspoon sweet almond oil
2 teaspoons Evergreen fragrance oil (or fragrance oil of your choosing.  If substituting essential oils, use half this amount.)
3-4 drops green food coloring

Measure out the salt into a large bowl.  Add the sweet almond oil and stir very well, until it coats the salt.  Next, add in the fragrance oil and stir until well blended.

Measure out 2 cups of this salt mixture and put in a separate bowl.  While stirring, add 3 or 4 drops green food coloring.  Continue stirring until the color is evenly distributed (this could take a minute or two, so be patient).

Layer the green and white salts into the jars.  Tie with a ribbon and add directions for use.

To use:  pour 1/2 to 1 cup salt into running bathwater.  Soak for at least 20 minutes.
