Put Yourself 1st

Welcome December! A time for gathering with friends and family and a time to reflect on the happenings over the past eleven months.

As a working Mom, school events, holiday parties and coveted time with family and friends, although welcome, bring on a whole new to-do list and set of challenges. Finding the time to just relax and breathe seems to always fall last on my list, so I am kicking off the month by putting myself first - on the 1st.

Soak up the holiday bliss along with me and let go of the stress with this DIY Peppermint Bath Salt recipe. While I am whipping up a batch for myself, I am also preparing a few extra for my family and friends as gifts for the holiday. Who doesn’t love to receive a little TLC? For gifting, I like to stack three of these containers all in different color combinations into a GoGo bottle bag like this one for effortless gift giving.

After all, the less time I spend wrapping gifts, the more time I have to test out my bath salts (aahhhhhhhhh……)!

This rejuvenating recipe for peppermint bath salts is easy, fun and should be at the top of your to-do list every month. It requires only a few ingredients and can be done is less than 10 minutes! Use food coloring for the layered candy cane effect or just go natural. Either way, you can never go wrong when giving the gift of relaxation.

Peppermint Bath Salts

Ingredients

* 2 cups - Epsom salt

* 1/2 cup - sea or Kosher salt

* 1/2 cup - baking soda

* 15-20 drops - peppermint oil

* 4-8 drops - food coloring {optional - I used red}

* Pretty jars (ex. small mason jars)


Instructions

1. Step one - in a large bowl combine epsom salt, sea or Kosher salt, and baking soda.

2. Step two - add in peppermint oil and stir or whisk to distribute evenly. I use about 15 drops of peppermint oil. Add more or less depending on your preference.

3. Step three - divide bath salts in half. Use a separate bowl to color bath salts with 4-8 drops of red food coloring.

4. Step four - layer bath salts in jars. About three heaping tablespoons per layer. Gently press the salts down before adding a new layer.
