I love lavender bath salts. I love the heavenly smell, I love the soothing effect it has, I love lavender as a color. Did I mention I love lavender? :)
I really do. I think there is no better ingredient out there than lavender oil if your body needs to relax, if it needs soothing or healing.
Here is how I prepare them
You will need:
To prepare it:
Here is where you can modify the recipe to fit you. You can either choose a recipe with 2 tablespoons of Epsom salt, 1 tablespoon of sea salt or you can just go with 3 tablespoons of Epsom salt. Epsom salt is a bit coarser than sea salt but it is also filled with minerals. I prefer 3 tablespoons of Epsom salt.
Alternative recipe is to drop baking soda and simply substitute it with 6 tablespoons of Epsom salt or 6 tablespoons of sea salt.
Pour salt into a jar and add to the mix 8 drops of lavender essential oil. You might be tempted to add more as it smell so great but don't. It will overwhelm the salts and might clump the salt up.
Close the jar and shake it gently to distribute the oil. Let it sit for an hour or so, shake it gently again and pour into running bath.
That's it! Simple isn't it?
You can also add a drop or two of food coloring, lavender petals... or you can just use it as it is, it is great either way.
