2. In a large bowl, combine 1 cup baking soda and 1/2 teaspoon essential oil.

3. In a coffee grinder, grind 1/2 cup citric acid, 1/4 cup bath salt and 2 drops food coloring. (I used pink) Grind to a fine powder and add to the mixture in a large bowl. Begin whisking together thoroughly.

6. Add message to one half of the ball.

7. Using your hands to pack mixture together. Press mold halves together, let sit several minutes and unmold.

8. Place them in a kitchen towel, wrap and let sit for 24 hours. Place them in your pretty box, and wrap with a ribbon. Enjoy!
