Homemade Bath Salts

1 tablespoon glycerin
Food coloring as desired
1 teaspoon cologne or more
3 cups Epsom salts

In a small glass or metal bowl, mix the glycerine, a few drops of food coloring, and a teaspoon of cologne. Place the Epsom salts in a separate glass or metal bowl, and pour the glycerine mixture over it. Stir until color is well combined. If desired, add more cologne. Store in an air-tight glass or metal container until ready to use. To use, add 1/2 cup or more to hot bath water.

Consult your doctor before bathing in Epsom Salts if you have high blood pressure, a heart condition, kidney trouble, or other health concerns.

Love At Home

There is beauty all around
When there's love at home.
There is joy in every sound
When there's love at home.

Roses bloom beneath our feet,
All the earth is a garden sweet,
Making life a bliss complete,
When there's love at home.

-- John Hugh McNaughton (1829-1891)
