Strawberry & Cream Bath Salts

Strawberry & Cream Bath Salts created by Rita1652

Make for yourself or as a gift. If you don't like the strawberry try Peaches & Cream or Lemon Meringue, adjusting the fragrance and the color, or make a blue and white version using a fragrance of your own choice. Note: Regarding to the review that uses Kool-aid I would like to say that I have never used that and I am not sure or it will leave stains.

Ready In:
20mins
Yields:
Units:

ingredients

  • 6 cups coarse sea salt
  • 18 cup glycerin (optional)
  • red food coloring, powder if possible
  • strawberry fragrance oil
  • vanilla fragrance oil

directions

  • Put the salt in a large glass mixing bowl, add the glycerin and mix well.
  • Divide the mixture in two, to one part add food color until the desired shade is reached, mix very well, if you use liquid food color be careful that the mix doesn't get too wet, if necessary leave the color pink instead of red.
  • Add the fragrance oil.
  • In another bowl, add the vanilla fragrance to the other part and mix well.
  • The fragrance amounts are not "to taste" but "to smell".
  • Cover both bowls and leave to stand for an hour, and then mix again.
  • Have some clean jars ready and fill them by alternating the layers, holding the jar at a slight angle, this way you get the layered sand effect Cover the lid with a piece of nice cotton or paper, tie with string or ribbon, and provide with a label Use 4 to 5 tablespoons per bath.

    My neighbour insisted on making this and made two batches, one for her and one for me.(I hope that counts) She said it was so easy, and absolutely loves it. I have the finished product. She had to use liquid food colouring. I've never seen powdered in Canada. I was planning on making this myself but when she saw the recipe she was insistant that she would make it. i had the oils already (essential oils), although I made my own strawberry oil as I could not find it. I did not know how to make the fragrant oil but it worked out so I guess I did Ok. We have enough to make the neighbour hood smell great

    This was so easy to make and the house is smelling terrific. Smells like springtime only it is fall. Oh well, so much for timing. So glad I stumbled upon this recipe...can't wait to try other scents. Will be a great addition to a gift basket! ~k
