Candy Cane Bath Salts

The girls and I made some Candy Cane Bath Salts today for their dance teachers (and a couple of friends of mine). You can find recipes of all sorts on the net for these, but here's our version.

Gather up all your supplies:
Epsom salt
Kosher salt
Peppermint essential oil
Red food coloring
Clean jars

In one bowl, combine 2 cups of Epsom salts and 1 cup of Kosher salt. Do the same in another bowl.

Add 4 drops of Peppermint essential oil to each bowl and mix it all up.
In one bowl, add 3-4 drops of red food coloring and mix it all up.
Now it's time to layer it all up!
Use a funnel and put in 1/2 cup of white salt in the jar.
Then put in 1/2 cup of red salt.

Continue to layer the salt in this manner until the jar if full.
Add a cute topper, a label, and a couple of candy cans, and you have a cute little gift ANY dance teacher could use to pamper her tootsies!
