Lavender Rosemary Bath Soak
Okay fine, I'll admit it. I love essential oils and I love taking baths and I LOVE taking baths with essential oils somehow involved.
Lavender is one of my favorite flowers. It reminds me of my dad who was an amazing gardener, smells divine, and helps me with my insomnia and stress. Rosemary is pretty awesome too, and it's just a bonus that it matches my name. (Rosemary is also great for soothing muscle and joint pain!)
Today I'm sharing a DIY lavender rosemary bath soak. Trust me, you won't regret this!
1 cup salt (Dead Sea Salt, Himalayan Salt, or Mediterranean Sea Salt)
- 1 cup epsom salt (there are some packages that already have lavender or rosemary—score!)
1/2 cup course Kosher salt
10-20 drops essential lavender oil (I get mine from Whole Foods)
2-3 tablespoons dried lavender (you can find these online or pick them from your garden)
2-3 tablespoons crushed, dried rosemary
For added fanciness, you can drop in a bit of purple food coloring! I use a brand of natural food coloring called India Tree—you can find this online or at Whole Foods.
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix thoroughly. Next, scoop mixture into airtight containers so you don't lose the fragrance over time. Mason jars are great for this and look pretty cute too! You can find small ones for a great price at Hobby Lobby.
When you're ready for a calming bath, add a handful or two to the hot running water and move the bath water around to absorb the salts.
These are wonderful little gifts, but an even greater gift to yourself. Pour yourself a glass of wine and enjoy!
