    DIY Irish Bath Salts: Easy Recipe

    My daughter loves to make her own DIY recipes at home. Whether it’s a chocolate cake or a glittery slime-ball, that girl is always testing out ingredient mashups. That’s why I thought it would be fun to show her a more mature option. Bath salts! With St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner, why not focus on some DIY Irish Bath Salts for the entire family? You could leave a jar in each bathroom or hand them out to guests that are staying over for the weekend. Make a great gift!
