2. When the dry ingredients are mixed, add drops of food or soap coloring (found in the soap making aisle at a craft store) until it is the desired color. Add a few drops of essential oil in the scent of your choice. Be careful not to add too much of the scented oil--a little goes a long way! Once your ingredients are all mixed together, your bath salts are complete!
