Stress-Relieving Bath Salts

“There must be quite a few things that a hot bath won’t cure, but I don’t know many of them.”
-Sylvia Plath

I could not agree more.  I fully believe in the healing powers of a hot bath.  I love them so much, that I have elevated baths to a full-blown hobby.  If I’m sad, I take a bath.  If I’m happy, I take a bath.  If I’m tired, I take a bath.  You get the picture. I like a hot bath.

At no time is a bath better than when you really need to melt away stress.  These bath salts are perfect after a long day.  They smell amazing, sooth sore muscles, and don’t have the nasty chemicals that many commercial bath products contain.

You’ll need:

1 cup epsom salts

1/2 cup sea salt

10-15 drops of your favorite essential oil (I like lavender)

3-4 drops of food coloring (optional)

Mix all of the ingredients together and store them in a covered container. Trust me, the next time your dog decides to develop enough anxiety to require a Prozac prescription, you’ll be glad you did.  Or maybe that’s just me.
