Epsom Salt Rainbow DIY + Giveaway!!!!
Epsom Salt is a magnesium sulfate that is in an inorganic, which means that it does not consist of or derives from living matter or that are not organic. This is a salt that contains magnesium sulfur and oxygen. While it sounds complicated, really what you have is a versatile salt that can not be eaten but can be used on your body, beauty products and even stubborn dishes.
The largest issue that we have is stubborn dishes, the food gets caked on and making the clean up near impossible. Since Epsom Salt when used before you scrub your dishes, makes the clean up a little easier, I wanted a pleasing yet functional way to store my salt near the sink. After some contemplation, I decided on making a Rainbow of Epsom Salt.

The creation of this Rainbow of Epsom Salt was easier and much simpler than I initially thought.
Once I decided on the colors I would be including I gathered the items i would need including a jar that used to contain mushrooms. I also gathered 7 snack bags, and the food dye I would need and of course the Epsom Salt.
After I figured out the measurements, I then got a snack bag, placed the salt inside and added the food coloring. Each color took a different amount of coloring, and I have listed the amounts below, but really this is more visual and personal preference as I like bold bright colors.
I proceeded to make 6 more baggies with 6 more colors and as each color was complete I spooned each one in making sure the salt landed in the center and worked its way to the sides. Once I had all the colors added I patted down the top to give it a uniform and tight look.
Here are the amounts of coloring I used:
- Red – 8 drops of Red
- Orange – 6 drops Yellow +2 Red
- Yellow -6 Yellow drops
- Green – 5 Green drops
- Blue – 5 Blue drops
- Purple – 4 Red drops + 2 Blue drops/5 Purple (if you have purple food coloring)
