Summer Dreams Bath Salts

You will need:
M&P opaque ("exfoliating") base
1 bag Celestial Seasonings Spearmint tea
5 or 6 drops green food coloring
Purple colorant/dye
1 teaspoon oil of wintergreen (from the drug store)

Heat M&P in bain marie, doubleboiler, or microwave until melted. While it’s heating, rip open tea bag, put leaves in either coffee grinder or pestle, and pulverize them thoroughly. Add ground leaves, wintergreen oil and food coloring to melted soap, and stir. Pour into molds (you can get neat shamrock shapes at party stores!), and let cool. Voila - St. Paddy’s Day soap!
N.B. Oil of Wintergreen is said to be excellent for sore muscles. The soap smells a bit like Ben Gay (guess why?), but is very refreshing to use
