What a good idea I bring you to prepare a nice and relaxing gift for Mom, especially on such an important day for her. Some bath salts with your favorite color and aroma. They are sure to love them, and with how easy they are to make, even Dad will want others. And the ladies too, that when the well-deserved rest comes, we have to relax to recharge our batteries and be 100% again and give all the love in the world to our little ones while we teach them letters, numbers and so many other things they learn. at school.
Making them is as easy as putting the coarse salt in a bowl and adding the food coloring. Then we mix until we get the desired color. When we have the tone, we add a few drops of the chosen essential oil and mix with a wooden spoon. The amount that is needed is in this proportion, for 200 grams of coarse salt add about 10-12 drops of essential oil.
And they are ready!! Now we just have to find a nice bottle, decorate it to our liking and fill it with the fantastic bath salts.
If we have leftovers, we can store them in a self-closing plastic bag.
