Easy Mother’s Day Gift Idea That Kids Can Make and That Moms Need

Give Mom a Well-Deserved Break That Can Also Improve Her Health

Kids Can Make Custom Bath Crystals, and Moms Will Appreciate The Well-Deserved Break

With Mother’s Day approaching, here’s a fun gift that kids can make and that Moms would really appreciate: custom bath crystals. They’re easy to make, they give Mom a well-deserved break and her relaxing soak might even help improve her health.

Here’s the recipe:

  • Mix two cups of Epsom Salt with a few drops of fragrance (an essential oil like peppermint, lavender or vanilla works great).
  • If you’d like, add a few drops of food coloring or 1/2 TSP of glycerin, which you can get in supermarkets or pharmacies in the health and beauty care section.
  • Place the crystals in an air-tight glass jar, have your child draw a nice label or make one on the computer, and attach a ribbon.

Note: For human use, the Epsom Salt Council recommends only Epsom salt with the USP designation.
