martha stewart salt soak favors

Planning a party? Give each guest a sweet-smelling treat, like these orange-scented salt soak favors from Martha Stewart! We’ll show you how to mix up a batch, then package it into Mason jars decorated with Martha Stewart’s indigo doilies. Take a look at our instructions below!
Step 1
Quantities Needed:
3 Cups Kosher (or Sea) Salt
1½ Cups Epsom Salt
½ Cup Baking Soda

To start, combine both salts with baking soda in a large bowl. If you’d like to add essential oil to your salt soak, combine that, too. Mix well. 
Step 2
Next, use your microplane grater/zester to zest the peel of one orange. Add the zest to your mixture and mix again! 
Step 3
Remove the lids from your jars and set them aside. 
Step 4
Now, scoop your salt soak mixture into each jar. Don’t overfill them or pack the mixture tightly, keep it loose. Gently tap each jar as you fill it to remove air pockets, allowing the mixture to settle inside. 
Step 5
Next, place a lid insert (the metal disk that sits inside the screw-top lid) on top of one of the jars. Place a doily on top of the insert and make sure it’s centered over the disk. Now, set the screw-top lid on top of the doily, gently pressing down the sides of the doily as you screw it in place. Then, fluff up the doily’s edges all around the jar. Repeat this step to add a doily and lid to each jar. 
Step 6
Almost finished! Use your marker to write the words “Orange Salt Soak” onto your labels (so your guests know what an amazing treat they’ve got!) and then stick one label onto the side of each jar. Great job!
