Hi everyone! This is another wonderful idea for another idea for those clear plastic ornaments you can pick up at the dollar store. This is one of those gifts you can give to your neighbors, co-workers, family, friends, postman…and they will love and appreciate it!
They come in a couple of different sizes. You may already have the ingredients in your bath and kitchen cabinets
First, mix all the ingredients: 1 cup Epsom salt, 1 cup Sea Salt, 2 tablespoons Baking Soda (acts as a detox, and softens water), 2 Tablespoons Dried Milk Powder, 2 Tablespoons Coconut oil, (you could use sunflower oil, sweet almond oil, jojoba oil). I divided this into three different bowls. Each bowl was for a different scent. I used I teaspoon of Lavender essential oil in the first, 1 teaspoon Peppermint in the second, and 1 teaspoon vanilla in the next. Since this was for Christmas, I added a few drops of red food coloring to the peppermint, a few Lavender buds that I had to the lavender, and a few drops of green food coloring to the vanilla.
Carefully remove the top metal hanger, being careful not to bend. Put a funnel inside the hole. Take one of the bowls of your salts, and start pouring inside the funnel. I filled the ornaments with bath salts. Each ornament used a little more than 1/4 cup to fill to the top.
Place your ornament in a gift bag, and tie with a ribbon or string. Place in someone’s stocking for an inexpensive stocking stuffer..or you get some pretty Christmas plastic gift bags…dollar store has them…dozen for a dollar..
