I'd like some jars for making bath salts to give as presents. They need to be air tight and look nice but don't need to be food grade. Most important thing is a reasonable price.

Asda have some for £1 at the moment. Might be a bit big though.

How on earth do you make your own bath salts?

not quite sure fruitstick - there are some recipes online but nobody replied in 'arts and crafts' with a definitive favourite recipe. Am going to try half epsom salts, half sea salt, a bit of glycerine and some essential oils.
