DIY Natural Candy Cane Bath Salts Recipe

4 mL Jojoba Oil (or other carrier oil of choice)
Two small bowls
Instructions: Measure out 1/4 Cup each of dead sea salt and Himalayan pink salt. Place each salt in a different bowl. Next, using a graduate plastic pipette, measure out 2mL of jojoba oil and add to the dead sea salts. Now, do the same with the Himalayan pink salt, adding 2mL of jojoba oil. Using a new pipette, measure out 2-3mL of peppermint essential oil – depending on desired strength – and add to the dead sea salts. Repeat for the Himalayan pink salt. (Remember, these salts are not being applied directly to skin, but will be dispersed in warm bath water.) Using a spoon, mix each bowl of salts individually until jojoba and essential oils are well incorporated.

Now, using a funnel, fill your test tubes with alternately colors of salt until almost completely full, then cap. Seal the test tubes closed with a strip of your choice of decorative washi tape using scissors to cut tape for a clean edge. This recipe will fill 5-6 test tubes with bath salts.

Want a brighter “red” stripe for your candy cane bath salts? Simply mix a tiny pinch of beet root powder into the Himalayan pink salts when you add your jojoba oil!

To use, simply empty the contents of one test tube into warm, running bath water and enjoy!
