12-12oz canning jars with lids and rings
1-4lb cartons of Epsom Salts
4 lbs of sea salt or kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon of glycerin, divided
12-15 drops of red food coloring
12-15 drops of peppermint essential oil
Cardstock, Ribbons, etc., for decorating
Wash, rinse and dry jars. Empty one carton of Epsom Salts and add 3 cups of sea salt. Stir well. In a small dish Add 1/4 teaspoon of glycerin and 6-8 drops of peppermint oil and add red food color. Stir until blended. Mix with salt mixture until completely blended. A Kitchen-Aid works well for this on low speed. Don't use a hand mixer or small stand mixer. If you don't have a high powered mixer use a spoon and elbow grease! Set aside red salts. Mix remaining salts with remaining glycerin and peppermint oil using same method above. Holding canning jars at an angle, layer salts in the jar alternating the white and red mixtures.
