There's not much to this idea! It's just too simple.
*Buy Epsom salts and food colouring.
*Poor salts into a bowl and add drops of colour.
*Blend with a spoon (we found a bit of grinding action with the back of the spoon very helpful).
*Put the coloured salts into an air tight container.
*Use on yourself or give as a gift.
That said, other things can round out and make for even better bath salts.
Consider adding sea salt, baking soda (softens the skin), or other salts. Kick it up a notch with powdered citric acid! Citric acid, which I found out the hard way has a shelf life, gives the salts a bubbling fizz and is the key ingredient in bath bombs.
Don't want to use food colouring? Try a liquid soap colouring, micas, or test out natural alternatives. Just keep in mind that the adding of liquids to baths salts needs to be kept to a minimum, lol. Well, at least until it hits the bath water!

That reminds me, I *do* have a Dutch Chocolate fragrance oil that my son would probably flip over. I'll pull it out for the next round of mixology!
