I know it's not December yet, BUT I have a Christmasy Salt Soak to share with you! It would make a great gift if you're wanting to get a head start!  You can use this as a foot soak or a whole tub soak.  It smells GREAT and leaves your skin feeling soft.  LOVE IT!
1 Cup Epsom Salt
1 Cup Sea Salt
2 Teaspoons Peppermint Extract
TEENY TINY bit of Red Food Coloring
 
Mix together salts and extract.  Take a spoon and put a TINY BIT of red coloring on it and then stir it through the salt mixture until you get the color you are looking for.  I wanted a light pinkish/red tint - if you have too much coloring in it your skin will turn red. (I've learned from experience on sugar scrubs!)

 This recipe makes enough to put loosely into 4 - 1/2 pint jars.  Decorate with some string and a cute tag and there ya go! SUPER EASY Christmas gift for family, friends or neighbors!
