With the aid of an incredibly helpful resource guide and several Facebook Groups for oil users, I've been learning different ways to incorporate my small batch of oils into my daily life. One simple way to incorporate oils into your life is to add them into your foods and products that you use every day.
One such way is to make soothing bath salts. You may know that epsom salt can be very good for you. Doctors and researchers say that soaking in an Epsom salt bath is a safe, easy way to increase the body's levels of both magnesium and sulfate (from: http://www.epsomsaltcouncil.org/about/). Not to mention how warm and relaxing it can be! You can make a variety of bath salts using therapeutic grade, essential oils that come in the Everyday Oil Kit when you order a Premium Starter Kit (PSK).
What You Need
- Unscented Epsom Salts
- Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils
- Empty Glass Containers like Mason Jars
- Measuring Cup
Gather some clean glass containers. I used 8 oz and 4 oz Mason Jars.
Depending on the size of your jar, measure out your epsom salts (1 and 1/2 cups for above jars).
Add approximately 2 drops of your favorite Essential Oil for each 1/4 cup of Epsom Salt.
Close the lid and shake gently to distribute.
Ideas for Essential Oils:
Lavender - To help find peace after a long day.
Peppermint - To help clear your head and renew your energy.
Pan-Away - To help ease muscles after a great workout.
Peace and Calming - To help relax after a busy day.
If you add a pretty label and ribbon, these DIY Bath Salts make a wonderful gift. You could even add a decorative spoon or scoop. You can give them individually or package up a few different ones for a variety pack.
