  • 1 Cup Epsom Salt
  • Food Coloring or Soap Coloring
  • Zip-Lock Bag


  • Put Epsom salts in a zip-lock bag with a couple of drops of coloring, zip it shut and shake, shake, shake!
    No need to squeeze the air out of the bag before you zip it shut, I find it works better with a lot of air inside for the salts to move around in.
  • Feel free to add more color until you reach the desired hue.
  • Keep your Colored Epsom Salts stored in the zip-lock bags until you need them.
