Now that Christmas is over you may find yourself craving a little rest and relaxation. What better way to unwind than with a luxurious and therapeutic soak in the bath tub? Add fragrant lavender rosemary bath salts that you make yourself for increased benefits. Bath salts are known to provide a variety of aids to health.
Lavender is used as aromatherapy for insomnia and anxiety and is a perfect choice for bath salts. Commonly used in bath therapy, rosemary helps those suffering from eczema or joint and muscle pain (www.webmd.com).
1 cup Dead Sea, Himalayan, or Mediterranean sea salt
1 cup Epsom salt
1/2 cup course Kosher salt
10-20 drops essential lavender oil
2-3 tablespoons dried lavender buds
2 tablespoons crushed, dried rosemary
purple food coloring (optional)
Add the essential lavender oil and mix thoroughly.
One of the benefits to making your own Lavender Rosemary Bath Salts, is that your home will smell fabulous when making it. I love the fragrance of lavender and sometimes add a couple drops to our heating vents in the winter.
You’ll want to store your bath salts in an airtight container to retain the fragrance.
I prefer clear jars so you can see the pretty bath salts on the shelf.
To use, add one to two handfuls of bath salts after a couple of inches of water have filled the tub. Hold the salts under the faucet and let them fall into the running water. You can stir the water around with your hand to help them dissolve. The fragrance will be released with the steam and your bathroom will smell heavenly!
But truth be told, I like to keep them for myself!
