It’s another Friday! But it’s not every time turn up- sometimes you kind of just want to relax. And we know just how you can do that with this delicious soak. The lavender scent is known to be soothing and calming, so you can eliminate stress at the same time with a single use. The flower contains antiseptic qualities which can reduce any inflammation and aches.
Combined with oatmeal and Epsom salt, this is truly a power-packed soak. Oatmeal soothes dry, irritated, and itchy skin while cleansing at the same time… which is probably why it’s such a staple in many over-the-counter and natural beauty products! Epsom salt helps with aches, relaxes the nervous system, and releases toxins from the body.
This lavender bath salt recipe is totally handmade, inexpensive, and boasts many amazing skin benefits. It also makes for a great hostess or birthday gift!
There’s nothing better than a long soak in the tub after a hard day of work. Why not kick it up a notch and pamper your skin in the process? You don’t have to buy expensive products to feel like the luxurious woman that you are.
Okay, so now you know the benefits… let’s make some!
- 1 Cup of Oatmeal
- Lavender Buds (or Culinary Lavender)
- 1 Cup of Epsom Salt
- Blender or Food Processor
- Jars or Cloth Bags
Step One: Start by processing your oatmeal into a fine flour-like texture. You can use a blender, hand blender, or food processor.
Step Two: Combine the oatmeal with the Epsom salt and stir well until combined thoroughly.
Step Three: Add your Lavender buds and stir it up. Use your judgment about the measurement. A couple of tablespoons work well, but use more or less depending on how fragrant you want your soak to be. Remember, the Lavender fragrance is very strong, so don’t go overboard!
Step Four: Spoon the mixture into cloth bags or a jar for storage. To use, add a few spoonfuls to a warm, running bath and enjoy!
