"I saw this idea a few times on the Martha Stewart site and I would really like to make these as stocking stuffers this Christmas. It seems like such an easy thing to do and would really take no longer than baking a cake. I have some lovely old jars that I could place these in too which would really make it a lovely gift for someone."
Gift wrap several seed packets and a small bag of soil within the pot to give to a family member or friend, with a card.
In a large bowl, mix to combine: 6 parts coarse sea salt; 3 parts epsom salts, to soothe tired muscles and reduce inflammation; and 1 part baking soda, to soften waters and alleviate skin irritation. Add a few drops of essential oils, and combine. Add a few drops of food coloring, until you achieve the desired shade. If you intend to present the bath salts as gifts, be sure to store them in a stoppered and labeled container to keep out moisture.
