    Can you use the peppermint oil in the baking section of the grocery store? Making this tonight and leaving for the store now to hand out tomorrow. !!!

      Hi Amanda,
      The peppermint at the grocery store is extract for food, not essential oil that you want to use here. You need to go to a place like GNC or a vitamin shop for essential oils.

    Just made my first batch of the Peppermint Bath Salts and love the scent wafting through my kitchen. I did change a few things. First added double the drops of red food coloring because I like a deep red in my candy cane look. Next I tilted my jars just a little to give them a swirled layered look. They look fabulous!!! Thanks for the recipe!!!!

    Made these and have left a couple jars for a few months and they hardened, do you know why? Maybe weren’t sealed tight enough? Also, took the salts out and re did them and hope they’ll work just the same. I love them by the way, just wondering what I did wrong? Thanks.
