RIO™ Sea Salt Crystals - Jumbo
Essential Oils or Fragrance Oils
Making Salt Crystal Potpourri is a simple process. The trickiest part is the coloring of the crystals. You have 3 choices for colorings: Liquid Based, Glycerin Based or Mica Powders. The liquid based colorings will dry the best, glycerin will be a nice translucent coloring and Mica gives you opalescent options. You can also simply rinse the crystals for a "glass like" look (see Rio Salt Page).
Add Fragrance and Color. Crystals out on Parchment to dry. If you’re using liquid or glycerin colorants, an easy way to color the crystals is by wearing rubber gloves and rubbing the color on the crystals. Mica’s you will have to sprinkle than mist with your fragrance."
I purchased some from RIO SALTWORKS. I think soapcrafters has it too. The Rio was realy nice and a total of about 20 bucks for 5 pounds. Did you know that when you heat the crystals, the ionization thing happens and it freshens the air without even scenting it. I put it in a bowl with tiny white christmas lights. It's beautiful. I even added a tiny dusting of iridescent glitter.
