*3 cups of epsom salts
*1 Tablespoon glycerine
*Trial vial of a fun cologne [or scented oil)
*Place the epsom salts in a gallon size zip locking bag,
*set aside. Mix the glycerine, food color, and cologne
*together. Add to the epsom salts. Zip the bag closed
*and knead the salts until the color is uniform. Store in
*a glass container with a tight fitting lid. Canning jars
*work great! Use about 1/4 to 1/2 cup, if the day was
*real bad, use at least 1 cup! <VBG>
*I have used one red drop and 2 yellow, to achieve a nice
*peachy color. I tried to copy the coloring of the packaging
*that the cologne comes in. I think the marketing departments
*spend a lot of time trying to decide on a color that "fits" the
*fragrance. This makes a lot! I like to give it as birthday

>scented oils. Any ideas?
i had to search long and hard for this recipe.... haven't tried it yet
(just found it last night) so if you get to it before i do, lemme know how
it works out! I HAVE, however, heard that plain MINERAL oil works better
than the baby oil cause it isn't scented. (the only difference.... except
the price around here!!!) The really thick kind works WONDERS!
*1 whole egg
*1/2 c baby, mineral or jojoba oil
*2 tsp liquid soap
*1/4 c vodka (any proof)
*2 Tbs honey
*1/2 c milk (any kind)
*essential oil for optional fragrance
*Throw it in a blender and process for 30 seconds. Use 1-2
*tablespoons in bath.
*It noted that the shelf life at room temp was about 18 months.
*Has me a bit confused with the egg and milk, but the reaction of
*all the ingredients may make a difference. I haven't tried it
*yet, so if you do let me know how it turns out!
As i said, i haven't tried it yet. Waiting for Friday afternoon...... and
time! Got the last of the ingredients last night, just have to blend them!
i'll let ya know how it works if i get to it before you do!
