Candy Cane Bath Salts Follow-up
So as promised in my very first post on this blog, I wanted to share with you the finished Candy Cane Bath Salts gift-jars.
My oldest daughter (who is only 2 1/2 years old) and I had so much fun making these for her teachers and as hostess gifts for friends having get-togethers this season.
I used my stand mixer fitted with the paddle to mix the two kinds of salt together along with the glycerin and peppermint essential oil (and red food coloring for 1/2 the mixture). Then, I helped my daughter fill the 16oz wide-mouthed canning jars that we bought using a funnel and a 1/4 cup measuring cup alternating between the white and the red.
Making SIMPLE, homemade, inexpensive gifts together as family is just one way I have found to alleviate stress and find joy this holiday season.
