Bath Salts? Yep … Bath Salts
I mentioned herbs. You see, herbal baths have a long history of successfully treating stress, respiratory ailments, even muscles aches and fevers. Did you know that the bath was at one time how practitioners delivered medicine to your system? Hot water opens your pores making it easy for your skin to absorb the healing properties of the herb.
Bath soaks have been considered the equivalent of bathing in herbal tea. You add herb teas to your bath salts and you’ve got a wonderful blend for bathing and relaxing. Make sure you put your herbs and salts int a pouch so as not to clog your drain with the herbs used for your soak. This can be messy and cause your drain to clog.
Here's a Basic Bath Salt Recipe
2 cups salt
1 cup dried herb mixture (optional)
1/2 cup clay (optional)
1/2 cup borax (optional)
25 drops essential oil of your choice
several glass jars with lids or plastic bags
!. Mix all your ingredients together except the essential oils.
2. Sprinkle the essential oils over your mixture and then blend them together.
3. Pour the salt into a glass jar or plastic bag and seal.
If you choose not to add herbs, clay or borax to your recipe, your can substitute powered milk or different salt blends.
If you'd like to spice up your bath salt you can add black salt as the salt ingredient. For the herbal blend use calendula, St.John's wort and borage. Use red clay and bergamot as the essential oil. That'll give you something new to work with.
Have fun as you soak the night away. That's it for this week. As Always ...
Dedicated to Your Beauty,
