Bath Blend of the Month - Relax and Comfort Bath Combination
This blend of salts and essential oils with some dried herbs give comfort and relaxation as well as making a great gift item. To make them get a decorative canning jar. Those colored ones Ball has out now are nice. Then mix the herbs and salts right in the jar. If you want to give it as a gift, you can label the jar lids. I found these great jar lid templates at Garden Therapy you might want to try: Jar lid Templates.
Relax and Comfort Bath Combination
§ 2 cups Epsom salts
§ 8 drop pure lavender essential oil
§ 6 drops mint essential oil
§ 2 drops eucalyptus essential oil
§ 2 drops rosemary essential oil
§ 1 tsp dried comfrey root powder
§ 1 tsp dried lavender flowers
§ 1 tsp dried mint leaves
§ ¼ tsp dried bergamot (bee balm) petals
Fill a pretty jar about halfway full of the Epsom salts. Add essential oils, replace lid, and shake. Remove the lid again, add comfrey and dried herbs, replace lid and shake (again.) Add more Epsom salts to fill the jar, replace the lid and shake again.
To use: Add 2 to 3 Tbls. of salt mixture to bath as you fill the tub. Swish to dissolve. Grab a cup of herbal tea and relax your cares away.
