I mentioned in another post that I have become a pinner on pinterest. I have found something that I totally love, love, love! I picked up a little flu bug while working at the elementary school the last few weeks and this week I just feel down right crummy! I have the body aches and chills and a miserable head cold. I pinned this site: Daily Detoxing Tips-Whole Living Wellness
Epsom Salt, Baking Soda and Lavender added to a hot water in the tub make for one amazing relaxing bath!
The website I found this on says:
“Once a week for 20 minutes, sit in a hot bath that contains a handful of Epsom salts, 10 drops of lavender essential oil, and a half cup of baking soda. This combo draws out toxins, lowers stress-related hormones, and balances your pH levels.”
Handful of Epsom salt…
I haven’t used a half cup of baking soda, I just dump some into my hand…
Then the best part, THE LAVENDER!
The website says 10 drops, I have done 8-12. The Lavender is so relaxing and after this kind of warm bath I can sleep really well!
If you are a stressed out crazy person or if you have the flu bug and are not feeling well---try this! I promise after a nice soak in the tub you will feel a lot better!
