Easy to make and wonderfully feminine with a genuine rose aroma, you'll enjoy this over and over again. Place the bath salt into a large mixing bowl. Add the food coloring and stir well to incorporate. You can add more food coloring depending on the depth of pink or red you desire your salts to have. The color will transfer to the bath water. Add the rose essential oil last and stir well to mix in. Place the salts into a glass container with a tight fitting lid and let them sit for a few days so the lovely rose aroma can be absorbed by the salts.
