WHY SO SALTY?
Because when it comes to a bath soak, being salty is a good thing.
This simple DIY will relax, detoxify, and make you feel pampered all at the same time. Yes, please!
All of these can be found on Amazon. You can double this recipe or triple it to create a larger batch to pull from as needed.
1️⃣ 1 cup of a sea salt (I used Dead Sea Salt)
2️⃣ 1/2 cup epsom salt
3️⃣ 1/4 cup of a carrier oil (olive, almond, apricot kern, or grape seed oil will do just fine)
4️⃣ 1/4 cup of baking soda (I did not put this in my soak, but a lot of people do. It is one of the main ingredients in bath bombs so if you use those a lot, you may want to add some baking soda)
5️⃣ Essential oils of your choice (5-20 drops). Be cautious of which ones you use. Soaking in them for a long time when your pores are opened up due to hot water can cause irritation when it typically wouldn’t. Lavender, rosemary, eucalyptus, and lemongrass all smell lovely, but you can always add more later so don’t overdue it.
Which brand of Essential Oils do I recommend? This is a question I get often and I now have a answer for you guys...
Well, my line. 😳 YUP, you read that right! I will be launching my own Certified Organic Essential Oil line in October. But if you do not want to wait that long to make this, try and find one at your local food store that is certified organic.
Add 1/2 of the DIY amount above or all of it to a hot bath. Soak and enjoy!
