We all need ways to recharge, refresh, and relieve stress, and one of my favorite ways to do so is by taking a nice sea salt soak. Beneficial in so many ways – it also restores minerals, balances skin moisture, reduces muscle pain and stiffness, and improves circulation of the lymphatic system – it’s a ritual I swear by and look forward to at the end of a long week. And, it’s something that you can easily make yourself, with just a few beneficial ingredients. See below for my favorite (and super easy) way to create. XXJKE
INGREDIENTS (increase proportionately to create a nice large batch)
2 cups sea salt
several tablespoons magnesium oil
dried herbs (I use pine and cedar)
Blend salt, magnesium and essential oils in a mixer until combined.
Add dried herbs and store in glass containers.
To use, add to warm running bath water and soak for 10-20 minutes.
To make a great scrub, simply add coconut or almond oil to your blend.
