I was in Michael’s Craft Store a few days ago and saw these clear Christmas ornaments. I am going to a Christmas craft show this weekend, and needed some “quick and easy” additions to the other products I am taking. They were perfect for creating some Bath Salts Christmas Ornaments, and would make great stocking stuffers, teacher’s and Secret Santa gifts.
I already had the ingredients I needed at home. You can buy “bath salts” but I chose to use Epsom salts and sea salt. Salts can be a little drying to your skin, so I added baking soda, and coconut oil. I also found some dried milk I had used for a milk bath recipe, and threw some of that in! Here’s the basic recipe. You can use sweet almond or jojoba oil if have that, too.
BATH SALTS RECIPE
1 cup Epsom salts
1 cup sea salt
2 Tablespoons Baking Soda
1 Tablespoon coconut oil (fractioned, because it’s liquid)
1-2 Tablespoons powdered milk (optional)
I added lavender buds and lavender essential oil for a lavender salt
I added red mica for the peppermint salts, (you could use a little red food coloring), and peppermint essential oil
For the last scent, I added a few drops of green food coloring, and vanilla essential oil.
After mixing the three separate scents, I used a rubber funnel to pour the salts into the ornament.
I love the way these turned out, and hopefully they will be a big hit at the craft show. If not, I know some people who will be getting bath salts in their stockings!
These won’t make it to my Etsy shop, but you can check out my other products here: www.Gardenchick.etsy.com.
