Easy Homemade Bath Salts Recipe with Lavender and Chamomile
There is something so soothing about the routine of filling up the bath. Getting the homemade bath salts recipe ready and filling the tub with warm water and inhaling the aroma of the essential oils.
Spending time in hot water also helped with inflammation, according to the study’s results. Bathers experienced an anti-inflammatory response in the body similar to what happens after people exercise according to U.K.’s National Centre for Sport & Exercise Medicine.
One thing that makes my bath experience with my homemade bath salts so heavenly is my bath pillow. I looked all over for the perfect bath pillow. I didn’t want a plastic pillow, and I wanted one that would support my neck in our large bathtub.
One thing I love so much about using the herbs in the tea bags, is you get the benefits of using fresh herbs without all the mess when you let the water out. So easy to clean up when it’s just in a tea bag!
Beyond its skin-healing powers, lavender essential oil also has also anti-anxiety effects and decreases premenstrual emotional symptoms. Take a bath with oils to aid sleep, promote relaxation, manage stress and lift the mood.
