My daughters love to bath with bath salts. I want to make some to give them
and friends for Christmas. I'm starting with Epsom salts and I have some
wonderful sents. What I can't figure out at the moment is how to color the
salts. It seems to me if I use a liquid color it will start to melt the salts
and I won't get a uniform color in the batch. Any ideas???? I've seen liquid
dyes and gel dyes. Anyone know of any other kinds that would work???
Here's what I use:
A mix of epson and rock salts (Like ice cream salt - it puts some big 'crystals in with the mix and we like that"
Baking soda (to soften the water)
food coloring. Just put a few drops in and stir it around - the salts will pick it up no problem
We often dye our big ice cream salt a different color than the small crystals to make it really pretty.
