Bath Salts and Essential Oils for relaxation and weight loss - easy recipe

If you have the luxury of sitting in a bath tub or even putting your feet in a small foot tub or basin, here is a recipe for relaxing those muscles, relieving tension and ultimately, weight loss.

DIY Bath Salt Recipe

In a bowl, mix and stir well:
  • 1 1/3 cups of Epsom Salt
  • 1/3 cup of sea salt
  • 1 Tb baking soda
  • 1 Tbs carrier oil (coconut, almond, etc) 
  • 10-15 drops of essential oils.
This will make approx 2 cups.

Add 3-4 Tbs to bath water and soak. For a foot bath, use no more than 1 Tbs of Bath Salt mixture. Rinse off with a cool shower.

Keep mixture away from sun, heat and in a glass jar with tight lid.

A few sample Essential Oils to use - Lavender (soothing, calming), Grapefruit (cellulite, uplifting), Peppermint (muscle aches, fatigue), Cedarwood (depression, uplifting), Rosemary (headache, circulatory)
