Homemade Peppermint Foot Soak Salts

Directions for Homemade Peppermint Bath Salts:

Peppermint Essential Oil
Epsom Salt
Sea Salt
Powdered milk
Food Coloring (optional)

Mix together in a gallon size Ziploc bag
1 cup Sea Salt
2 cups Epsom Salt 
1/3 cup powdered milk

Add the essential oil one drop at a time and mix well to achieve desired fragrance.  Tint the mixture in the same way with the food coloring.  (I used red and it didn't dissolve well.  But it turned out cute because it almost looked like chunks of candy cane.  When you add the hot water it turns light pink)

Supply purchase tips:
The best deal I found on essential peppermint oil was the Now Foods brand for for $6.99 for 1 oz at Whole Foods.

I bought the sea salt at Whole Foods in the bulk foods section for 49 cents per lb. It is fine, not chunky like you usually see in soaking salts but the size of the salt doesn't really matter.

Sam's Club has a 10 lb tub of Epsom Salts for $5.00.
