Halloween Candy Inspired Bath Salts


There are only a few more days left until Halloween! I don’t know what you have planned for Saturday morning, but I’m considering locking myself in the bathroom with a collection of Halloween spa treats and pampering myself. Then I will be refreshed, beautified uglified and ready for a hoard of trick-or-treaters! Join me for perfect spa treat!

Candy Corn inspired bath salts.

Candy Corn inspired bath salts.

Today, I’m pulling a staff favorite out of the archives. In 2012, I wrote a post about Halloween Foaming Layered Bath Salts and our team loved them. Last week we got together and made a large batch of bath salts inspired by that very post! We made changes and you will find these bath salts so fun and easy to make that you will be able to make some right now.

What recipe did we follow? Check it out below!

* The premixed colors were made by mixing 1/2 tsp of dry dye colorant with 2 ounces of water in a 2 oz bottle with a spray head. After the color was mixed, I used this to makes the salts my desired color.

Weigh all salt into your desired mixing container. Add the fragrance blend and mix thoroughly. Divide the mixture into three equal portions in plastic bags. Leave one portion white and set aside.

Using a spray bottle filled with premixed color of yellow, spritz another portion several times. I usually spritz about 5 times and then knead the bag to completely mix the color with the bath salts mixture. This will prevent some of the salt from being over colored. I will repeat the spritzing process as many times as it takes me to have the salts colored to the desired point. Once the salt is colored to your desired point, set the bag of yellow salt aside and repeat on the last portion with the red and yellow colors to make an orange colored mixture.

Now you can bottle or bag as you desire. We put ours in the 1 oz Cylinder bottles. These bottles make super cute gift sized bath salts for kids and adults! You can also make a larger size and use the Bath Salt Tubes. Wouldn’t these be adorable with a black cap?

Enjoy!

About Andee

I'm a twenty something soap snob. I've grown up with hand made soaps and I love them! I really like making lotions, soaps and perfumes. I adore mixing scents to come up with something new. My favorite scent is either Wicked or Cotton Candy. I tend to hoard fragrances, I even have an Earl Grey Tea from the MMS catalog. I won't tell you how old it is, but it sure is good!
