Bath Salts
After the crazy holiday season, there's no better gift than rest and relaxation. Soothing homemade bath salts will allow your friends and family to kick back and take a breather. 

To make them, combine 3/4 cup Epsom salt, 1/4 cup baking soda and 1 1/2 cups of coarse sea salt. Mix everything in a bowl with a drop of scented oil and add a couple of drops of vegetable food coloring. Mix well to get the color to distribute evenly.

Funnel your salts into a clear bottle, label the scents and you've got a gift that no one would ever guess was made in your kitchen!
