Foaming, Colored Bath Salts – Krista Scott

  • 1 cup baking soda
  • ½ cup citric acid
  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • 1 ¼ cup Epsom salt
  • ¼ cup sea salt (I used fine)
  • 1-2 Tbsp SLSA
  • 1 Tbsp of a light oil (I used sweet almond)
  • Fragrance
  • Colorant of your choice (I used mica powder)
  • 1 Tbsp Poly 80 ( I highly recommend if using mica powder)
  1. Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl and combine well, to remove any clumps in the powders.
  2. Mix your fragrance into the oil. I used a full 3ml pipette, but use what you feel is a good fragrance amount, as long as you stay within the usage guidelines for your particular fragrance.
  3. Add the oil mix into the salt mixture and blend well.
  4. Turn out onto a parchment lined cookie sheet and allow to dry for at least 24 hours. I let mine dry for 24-48 hours before packaging. lessens the chance of the salts clumping together. I also stir the salts, once in a while, to ensure they don’t clump.
Using mica will (more than likely) not color your water. You can try lakes for that. I haven’t tried lakes, so I can’t say for sure how it would work. I use mica primarily to color the salts themselves.
