In keeping with the swine flu media craze sweeping the country, try out this Revitalizing Recovery Bath Salts recipe from Suds and Scents. Stay healthy and well!
This is an excellent bath for those feeling achy or have the flu. Also excellent for those zealous over-trainers with good fitness intentions! An excellent body detoxification bath.
1 cup Epsom Salts
2 Tablespoons French Green Clay
1/4 cup Bicarbonate of Soda
2 Tablespoons Sea Salt
5 – 8 drops of your favorite essential oil or blend
Mix the ingredients together. You may use the entire recipe for one bath or spread it over 2-3 baths. Store in airtight container. When you are ready to use (don’t add the essential oils until you are ready to take the bath – they evaporate too quickly), fill the tub with medium to hot water.
Caution: for heart conditions or high blood pressure – avoid HOT baths.
Pour desired amount into the bath and hop in. Allow the rejuvenating blend to sooth away stress, body aches and ease your mind. RELAX the body and mind.
If your skin is dry, try adding a teaspoon of jojoba, almond oil or apricot oil (best added to the water after you are in the tub).
