  1. Just wanted you to know, I’ve made this exact recipe twice using soap colorant and the color turned out beautifully!!


  2. I have made two batches of this and cannot get it to turn the right color green. I’ve tried both lime colorant AND green colorant. I’ve had to use more than 10X your recommended amount of colorant to even get the color I’ve managed so far. The best I can get is a faint green- and that was after 55 drops of green colorant. It is very disheartening. I’m honestly questioning the honesty of this post and the pictures you’ve included.

    1. Wow, Danielle, I’m taken aback at the accusation but setting that aside for a moment… I’ve made this at least three times over the years and it’s come out every time. I am thinking it might be your colorant and not the process. Here’s the process – seeing exactly how many drops I am using:

  3. I added a bit of olive oil to the mixture and kind of turned clumpy and hard in a few days.
    Would it be because of baking soda or the olive oil, any idea?

      1. I got it on Amazon in a small pack but this time of year, Michael’s craft stores has a soap and body DIY section which might have it.

    1. If stored in a glass (or PET plastic) air-tight jar, these will remain “good” and at potency for the life of the essential oil (between 1 and 3 years) if stored in a cool, dry, dark place.

      However, the sugar sprinkles used in this one might break down before that and the salts will definitely get clumpy. I would say no longer than 6 months, so you’re good to make them now if preparing for Christmas. :)

  4. This is so cute, I wish I’d seen it before Christmas. I might leave it white with the red hearts for “Galantines.” Can you store it for a while without the red hearts bleeding and staining the bath Salts?

    1. Michelle – that is a seriously cute idea! The colors didn’t run for us BUT we kept it in airtight, sealed containers. The red would likely run (it’s just sugar) if you got the mixture wet. I would recommend test tubes for single-use (like a bouquet of them for Valentine’s day, perhaps) or a hermetically sealed jar with a scoop.
