Lavender Bath

Make A Luxurious Lavender Bath Spa.

Stress is a killer. You have heard this more times than you can count, right.

You cannot get away from it but you can at least reduce its effects by giving yourself a bit of therapy in your own home and for a lot less than if you were to buy expensive bath salts.

The Romans loved it and the ancient dynasties of china used it. Lavender the word itself is derived from the old Latin, “lavo” meaning, “to wash”.

It is one of the foremost fragrances used in aromatherapy because of its soothing properties. Hot water only makes it all the more relaxing.

Magnesium sulfate is a chemical compound commonly referred to as Epsom Salt. It is named for the town in Surrey, England where it was originally distilled.

It works by converting acoustic energy into heat in water. This is not the only reason that bath salts are made with Epsom salt.

It raises the specific gravity in water so that bodies are more buoyant and it also keeps the skin from wrinkling so that you can remain in the water longer. It also reduces inflammation in joints and muscles.

Lavender Bath Salts

This lavender scented bath leaves you so relaxed that the only thing you will want is a nice long nap. The magnesium sulfate also lowers blood pressure as well as adrenalin.

The recipe is quite simple really, the items you will need are:

  • 2 cups of coarse sea salt
  • 5 drops of Lavender essential oils
  • 2 cups of Epsom salt
  • 4 drops of red dye (cosmetic grade not food grade)
  • 5 drops of blue dye
  • A glass or ceramic dish

You start with the dry ingredients. Mix them together thoroughly. Add in the essential oils and mix it in so that the salts absorb it.

Make sure you are working in a well-ventilated area. Next mix both colors together in a separate dish.

Mix the coloring in until all granules are colored. Now spread the results out on wax paper to dry and in a few short hours you will have made your very own lavender bath salts.
