Between backpacks and sports teams, you’re body takes a
beating when you head back to school. This quick-‘n’-easy recipe will get you
into the bath and feeling better in no time!
What you’ll need:
1 cup Epsom salt
1 cup baking soda
Essential oil of choice (GL likes lavender for its soothing
properties and peppermint for treating aches and pains)
Optional: food coloring
What you’ll do:
Measure out the Epsom salt and baking soda and mix together
in the bowl. Add the essential oil you chose, anywhere from 5 to 30 drops
depending on how strong you want the scent of your salts to be. If you want to
add a punch of color, add in food coloring drop by drop to get the color you’re
yearning for. (Go slowly! You’ll only need a few drops!). Mix it well and spoon
it into your empty jar. For bath time, add a few tablespoons to running water. Don’t
forget the bubbles!
Gift it! Choose a festive-smelling oil or one of your bud's favorites and mix up a batch. Buy a few inexpensive glass jars at a craft store like Michael's, wrap a cute ribbon around the lid and gift away.
