Candy Cane Bath Salts how-to:
- 2 cups Epsom salts
- 1 cup sea salt
- 4 or 5 drops peppermint essential oil
- 4 or 5 drops red food coloring
- 1 apothecary jar
In a bowl, combine salts and oil. Spoon out half into another bowl; stir in food coloring until salt turns red. Scoop a layer of white salt into jar. Smooth along the diagonal, then repeat with red salt until jar is full and looks like a candy cane. Tie on a scoop – you’ll use about ¼ cup per bath – with a ribbon, if desired.
