If you have not designated some time during the week to use your “turn off” switch to just relax and ignore the outside world, we highly recommend you make it a priority. Place a “Do Not Disturb” sign on your bathroom door and set aside one hour a few times a week for your well-being. No guilt allowed. In fact, we have the perfect bath salt recipe that you can make on your own for optimal relaxation. Measure out the following:
- 1 cup of Himalayan Salt
- 1 cup of Epsom Salt
- 1 teaspoon of an essential oil of your choice.
- Combine salts in a mixing bowl using a fork or whisk. Once combined, slowly add your essential oils and dried herbs, if using. Make sure to blend thoroughly so salts combine with the oil.
- That’s it! Now all you have to do is make sure you store your newly hand-made bath salts into a sealed tight container so they don’t dry out before you’re ready to use.
- Bath time: Fill the tub with water as hot as you can take it. Pour the entire mixture into the tub letting it dissolve completely. Be sure to have a glass of cold water next to the tub and drink often.
