Mason Jars: Soaking Salts

Last week I share with you a fun craft opportunity I have making fun little treats and gifts for my children's schools Sunshine Committee (a group of teachers that are committed to bringing random acts of kindness to our students, teachers and staff who need a little "sunshine").

Part of my bag of goodies provided by the team was a bunch of these small half pint mason jars.

I love mason jar crafts because there are so many possibilities.  I have done a number of gifts in the past with sugar scrubs and bath salts so I decided to mix up a fall version for the Sunshine Committee (note, I totally need to make some of these for my family and friends too because they turned out awesome).

The recipe is quite simple. 

Basic Recipe:
2 cups Epsom salt
1/2 cup baking soda
few drops essential oil
food coloring (optional)

I decided to make a Cinnamon Apple Pie Soaking Salt so I added the following ingredients...

cinnamon essential oil
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp cloves

I stirred it up and spooned it into the jars.  I cut a circle of scrapbook paper and designed a label using the Avery website.
Of course, I could also fill these jars with candy.  And I did.  The beauty is they can be filled with any number of types of candies and decorated with a simple round from fun, seasonal scrapbook paper.  For October I also filled some jars with candy corn and Halloween paper.

Come back Monday for my cute turkey treat jars.
