Energize and uplift spirits with homemade candy cane bath salts, a fun and inexpensive gift to make that’s perfect for holiday giving.

Step 1: Put Epsom salts in bowls
Put 1/2 cup of Epsom salts into each of two separate bowls.

Use resealable plastic bags for mixing ingredients for less mess.

Step 2: Put in oil and glycerin
Put two drops of peppermint oil and two drops of glycerin into each bowl, stirring to distribute them evenly through the Epsom salts.

Step 3: Add red food coloring
Add two drops of red food coloring into one of the bowls, and then stir until the color is uniform.

Step 4: Layer salts in jar
Use a funnel to alternate layers of red and white salts in a glass jar to make a candy cane effect, tapping the jar to settle the material, and filling the jar to the top.

Tilt the jar as you add salts to create diagonal candy cane stripes.

Step 5: Tie on a ribbon
Tie a ribbon around the jar of bath salts and add a candy cane in place of a bow.

Step 6: Make a tag
Make a tag instructing the user to add 2 to 3 tablespoons of the mixture to bath water, and to look forward to enjoying a stimulating holiday-style hydro experience.
