A couple years ago for Christmas gifts I made these bath snowballs. Not only did they look gorgeous but they were excellent for a long winter soak in the tub. This is from the Martha Stewart magazine so for instructions on how to make them click here.
The ingredient list is short; just Epsom salts, essential oil, water and food coloring. When I made these in 2008 I made them just like in the magazine. Though the soft blue and peppermint oil make for a lovely bath, I think I might try something different this year. Perhaps pink with grapefruit or purple with lavender....
My recommendation for packaging would be some sort of clear container since they look so pretty. The important thing to remember is that if you are giving it to someone to store in the bathroom make sure the container seals well enough to keep out the moisture (the container in the picture above was just a food storage container from Zellers).
