Firecracker Bath Salts!

6N23-K-FirecrackerBathSalts-2It’s almost the 4th of July! I hope everyone has planned a weekend filled with fun. I am going to be spending my 4th of July around the campfire and watching the fireworks with good friends. I can’t wait. Here is a recipe for a fun 4th of July project. Red, white and blue bath salts. These are so easy to make and would even be a fun project for the kids.

1% Hydrogen Fragrance Oil
Q.S. Premixed Color of Choice

Recipe Note:

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.

When I made this recipe I doubled it so that I would have enough to share with you guys. In order to make these fun bath salts I weighed the salt and fragrance oil together in a bag and shook it all around until it was mixed. Then I divided the salt equally between three bags. Set one bag aside and with the other two bags, color one red using a mixture of Purple Raspberry Color and Lemon Yellow. Then for the last bag I used the Grape Color to get the blue. I chose the 1 oz cylinder bottle for these because I think it’s the perfect size for one bath! To make this a little easier on myself I used a small funnel to fill up the bottles. Last but not least label and enjoy!
