Sometimes after a long
day week year, I need a good, long, relaxing bath. Last night was no exception. I took a nice soak in the tub with a mixture that not only left me feeling relaxed and ready to sleep, but relieved my headache, backache, and stress, and also replenished my body with magnesium while giving it a gentle detox. WOW! This easy to assemble spa treatment was well worth the less-than-50¢ that it cost me!
Here are just some of the benefits that the three ingredients in these healing salts provide:
Epsom Salts: Relieves stress, relaxes, soothes pain, removes toxins, replenishes magnesium (short acting)
Peppermint: Relieves headaches and other body aches, soothes pain, relieves stress, nourishes skin, improves circulation
Lavender: Soothing, relieves stress, treats anxiety & depression, relieves pain, heals skin
- 1 cup Epsom Salts (Magnesium Sulfate)
- 2 drops Peppermint Essential Oil
- 3 drops Lavender Essential Oil
- To make for later use, pour salts into a small glass jar, add essential oils & mix well.
- When ready to use, draw bath water (warm, not hot), add mixture and allow to completely dissolve in water before soaking 15-20 minutes for maximum benefits.
Don’t forget to share these salts with your friends! If you pair them with a decorative mason jar tied up with ribbon or twine, these bath salts make a frugal gift for any occasion. I know that I wouldn’t mind receiving a jar!
Note: I recommend using only Young Living Essential Oils or doTERRA Essential Oils as these are both therapeutic grade and trusted brands. Other brands may contain harmful parabens that are unsafe for bodily absorption. If you are interested in purchasing essential oils, I am a Young Living distributor and would be happy to consult you.
