Baths that Cleanse the Body and Rejuvenate the Soul

I just moved into my new home. I’m very excited and very exhausted!  While I would love a trip to Tahiti, an equally soothing and easier getaway is a bath.  Baths help you to unwind by relaxing your nervous system.  Hot water draws toxins out of the body and a combination of different salts help to cleanse, exfoliate, soften, and reduce swelling in the skin.  Epsom salts, in particular, are great natural muscle relaxers while sea salts deliver skin nourishing minerals.  So after last week, I’m planning tonight to have my own personal Tahiti…in my bathroom!

Easy Salt Soak
1/2 cup sea salts
1 cups baking soda
1/2 cup Epsom salts
1 to 2 tablespoons glycerin per bath
16 oz – 24 0z glass jar with screw top

Combine the sea salts, baking soda, and Epsom salts in a bowl. Stir to blend. Pour 1/4 cup or so into the bath while the tub is filling. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons glycerin to keep your skin from drying out (more for dry skin). Store in a glass jar with a screw top Makes 2 cups (enough for 8 baths).

Lavender Salt Soak
1/2 cup sea salt
1 cups baking soda
1/2 cup Epsom salts
1 to 2 tablespoons pure vegetable glycerin per bath (available from your local health food store)
4 to 6 drops organic Lavender essential oil per bath
16 oz – 24 oz glass jar with screw top

Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl, stirring to blend.  Add 1/4 cup to your bath while the tub fills. Add the glycerin to the bath to prevent drying and the drops of essential oil. Store in the glass jar.

Masada Dead Sea Salts are my favorite. They come in all different fragrances. Dead Sea salts are effective in the treatment of a variety of disorders, such as rheumatologic, skin conditions, and especially helping to reduce stress.

Bon Voyage!
