    The food coloring in the bath salts will not stain anything, correct?

  5. Effie says:

    Would like to know if rock salt (used in making ice cream, cooling, ice/snow) would also work?

  6. Amanda says:

    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. !!!

    • Blaine says:

      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.

    How many jars does this recipe make?
