Here’s a sweet little recipe to add some pretty into your day!
We all know the feeling of tired, aching muscles. After a long day, sometimes you come home feeling like you can barely crawl into your bed!
Bath soaks are wonderful for relieving tension and loosening up tight muscles- perfect after a long day at the office or a challenging workout. Add in a few drops of lavender essential oil to calm and relax your mood and mind and you’ll be ready for one fantastic night of sleep!
- 1 1/2 cups Epsom Salt (or blend of Epsom and Dead Sea Salt)
- 1/4 cup Rose Buds & Petals
- 5-10 Drops Lavender Essential Oil
- Lidded Jar
Here’s a close-up shot of the Lavender essential oil that I used.
Start by mixing the essential oil into the salt. Make sure that you thoroughly blend the oil throughout, breaking up clumps as you go.
Next, add in the rose petals. I used 1/4 cup of petals and buds, but feel free to increase or decrease this amount based on your preferences.
Stir the petals into the salt mixture. For me, I wanted to see the rose petals speckled throughout the salt (not too heavy, but not too light either) so 1/4 cup was just the right amount.
Transfer the mixture into a lidded jar for packaging and storage.
Add desired amount of the soak mixture to warm bath water. Soak for at least 20 minutes to relieve muscle tension and relax your body.
PS- This recipe would make a wonderful gift!
