Super ‘Old -fashioned’ Spa Bath

bathtub

Who said our grandmothers didn’t know what they were talking about?

A nice hot bath is an age-old  remedy for just about anything that ails you. And Epson salt?  Yep!  A household cure -all  and good for anything from  relieving sore achy  muscles to boosting the productivity  of the home garden.  Baking soda too !   Ahhhh and yes, lavender!  Who doesn’t love lavender?      Combine  em all, and you have a recipe  for a luxurious super soak that rivals any such spa treatment, and at a fraction of the cost.

Once a week for 20 minutes, sit in a hot tub that contain (1) a handful of Epson OR sea salts. (2) 10 drops of lavender essential oil and  (3) half cup of baking soda.

The combination ( 1 )  draws out toxins. (2)  lowers stress-related hormones and  (3) balances PH levels ( 4) promotes a better night sleep..
