If you would like to add color to your salts, FD&C liquid dye or mica powder can be added beforeyou add the essential oils. When adding FD&C grade liquid dye, be sure to add only a drop at atime and stir well. When adding mica powder, only add a tiny amount (1/16-1/8 a teaspoon isusually sifficient) and stir very well. Using too much dye or mica powder can discolor the water and discolor skin, so be very careful. Leave bath salts at a soft pastel color. It is also important thatyou make sure that you are using skin-safe colorants and that the user of your bath salt blend doesnot have any allergies or sensitizations to the colorant that you have chosen.To Use:Add 1/2-1 cup of the salts to running bath water. Mix well to ensure that the salt has dispersed wellin the tub before entering. To keep the essential oils from evaporating too quickly, you can add the bath salts just before getting in the tub instead of while the water is running. Sitting on undissolvedchunky bath salts can be uncomfortable, so make sure the salts have dissolved well beforeentering.
