things I’ve actually done that I saw on Pinterest #1 – eucalyptus bath salts

This one was a favourite at Christmas. It is actually an adaptation of a recipe for candy cane bath salts that I saw on Pinterest.

Make these up, package in a nice glass jar and attach a scoop with a ribbon and you have a thoughtful but easy gift.

I’m making up a batch for myself right now because of cold season. I love the eucalyptus scent.


Eucalyptus Bath Salts

  • 2 cups epsom salts
  • ½ cup sea salt
  • 15 drops eucalyptus essential oil
  • 2 -3 drops green food coloring

Mix all ingredients well, breaking up any bits that stick together because of the food colouring and oil. Store in a covered container. Use 1/3 cup of salts in a full tub of water.
