Hello! Miss Poppins here. I am posting 'Works For Me Wednesday' for my mom today.

Every year LadyWhy, Flibby, Nana and I attend a Christmas craft fair in November. My mom always buys soaps, creams and bath fizzes at her favorite booth. But one of her very favorite things to buy there is bath salts. She loves them! The only problem is that she runs out of them very quickly and then she has to wait until next November to get some more. So this Mother's Day I did a little internet searching and found a great recipe for some quick and easy homemade bath salts for my mom.

Start with a large mixing bowl and a spoon or other utensil. Add 3 cups of Epsom salt, 2 cups of baking soda and 1 cup of table salt into the bowl (this makes a lot of bath salt so I reduced the recipe). When all ingredients are added, begin mixing them with your spoon. Next, slowly add food coloring of your choice to the mixture. Regular food coloring will work perfectly and should be added according to the color that you desire. After your coloring is added and mixed evenly, begin to add essential oils until the desired scent is achieved. (I used the scented oil from some bath pearls that I already had on hand and that worked perfectly.)

This a very simple craft that only takes a few minutes to make!
