Organic Bath Soak Recipe

Finally, I have perfected my bath soak!

It is so easy for me to strain and pull muscles, so I often soak in bath salts.  I have tried so many and never did find one that really did the trick for me.  I am sensitive to chemicals and scents, so I began mixing my own.  I tried Himalayan salt, which is the most pure on the planet, but it is not worth spending the extra money to soak in.  I found no difference between that and regular Kosher salt and epsom salt.  I kept adjusting the ratios until I came up  with one that worked well for dry skin.

Now I have found one that I just love.

Here is my recipe:

2 and 1/2 cups coarse Kosher Salt to  soothe sore muscles                                                             1 and 1/2 cups epsom salt which aids in reducing inflammation                                                   1/2 cup baking soda to reduce skin irritation                                                                                     3 drops of organic lavender essential oil (available online) the most calming scent of all       a few drops of food coloring to desired color

Mix all these ingredients together and enjoy a nice relaxing, soothing bath.  Moisturize your skin, applying with upward strokes towards your heart for a mini-massage.

If you are sensitive to dyes, you can skip the food coloring.

Yield:  about 40 oz. which fits into a quart-size ziploc bag.

Store it in a bag or a moisture proof jar, like a canning jar, or a pretty one with a tight-fitting cork.
