Homemade Bath Salts for Mother's Day

A quick craft your kids can make for the special women in their lives! (Green week on Unplug Your Kids!!!)

1- Pulse Epsom Salts 6 - 10 times so grains are still big but not gigantic
2- Add vitamin E oil, dried melon and cucumber, then natural dye and fragrance
3- Pulse another 6 - 10 times to combine
4- Clean glass containers with alcohol and then fill with mixture
5- Affix super cute custom labels
6- Add ribbon and wrap!

I found many recipes very easily for scrubs, bath salts... all kinds of pampering goodies.

The labeling and container can be as easy or as complex as you want to make it. Ingredients are readily available at hobby and drug stores (Epsom salts are MUCH cheaper at a drug store!) and the scents you use can be pretty much anything you can imagine.
