This recipe makes 12 12-ounce gift jars, plus a bonus of 3 to 4 cups extra bath salts (you could use them for stocking stuffers...but I always have to 'test' mine). You can use a large stand mixer (like a KitchenAid) to mix the salts. You could use a different essential oil/essence. One of my favorites is to make a strawberries & cream jar. Use Strawberry essence/essential oil and red dye (I still make the layers). I'll then attach a tube of facial cream to the jar lid. One year I dehydrated some thinly sliced strawberries and scattered them among the layers--that came out beautifully!
