Valentine’s Day has come and gone. This doesn’t mean that it is too late to show a little love. Treat yourself to a relaxing day at the spa by creating one in your own bathroom!
Nothing is better than a warm bath at the end of the day. Lavender is used in aromatherapy to relax the mind and spirit... especially helpful for a good night's sleep. Salts are known to detoxify and soften the skin. Adding salts to the bath water can make this “me time” extra special. Here is a nice and easy recipe for lavender-scented bath salts:
½ cup Epsom or sea salt
¼ cup baking soda
2 Tbsp lavender buds
20 drops of lavender essential oil
Mix all of the ingredients together in a glass bowl and transfer to a mason jar.
Use ¼ - 1/2 cup of the mixture and add to warm bath water.
Breathe deeply, release the day and relax!
