DIY Natural Cold Weather Cure: Easy Scented Bath Salts

DIY Natural Cold Weather Cure: Easy Scented Bath Salts

The reemergence of cold weather has many of us scrunching down in our coats to the chill, which might make for a warmer stroll, but unfortunately also makes for a scrunched neck, a sore back and achy shoulder muscles.

For me, nothing heals achy muscles and bones or cures colds faster than a warm bath-salt soak, and TRULY nothing tickles is better than a budget-friendly, sweetly scented, warm bath-salt soak.

Making your own scented bath salts is a quickie, 2-step process that takes no longer than the amount of time it takes to fill the bath with warm water.

While the bath is filling....

Step 1: In a clean, dry glass jar, (we love repurposing old mason jars with the clampable rubber-sealed lid, but you can always reuse a pretty makeup container) Combine the following:

  • 2 cups of Epsom Salts (about $3 at at any drug store)
  • 2 tsps of baking soda
  • 10 drops  of essential oil (lavender, rose, almond or eucalyptus are faves)

Step 2: Mix together.  If you've got an old chopstick lying around, it makes the perfect mixer.

Drop a good dose of salts in the bath, slide your tired, achy body right in and you'll feel better in no time.
