Worked all day? Take time to pamper yourself. Here I am sharing an easy to make bath salts recipe that will have you rejuvinated in no time.
I love the scent of lavender, so when I’m trying to relax before bed, I use my lavender salts. Check out your local Whole Foods or Health Food Store for other blends too!.
- Easy DIY Bath Salt Recipe
- Essential oils come in a variety of fragrances and can be found at your local health food store.
- 2 parts epsom salt
- 1 part baking soda
- 5 to 10 drops of essential oil
- Mix ingredients together in a bowl
- Add color with a drop or two of gel food coloring.
- I prefer a blend of lavenders for relaxing, peppermint for a quick pick me up, eucalyptus for relieving my sinus symptoms
