Stocking A Bathroom Wall Cabinet With Spa Ingredients
Take a look in your bathroom wall cabinets. Do you have Epsom salts, lotions, candles, fluffy towels? What about foot stones, loofahs, razors? Gather them all up and plan a bathing session that is sure to relieve some of that stress. It's easy to create a recipe for a fragrant bath experience that rivals those offered by the best spa. In a glass bowl, mix a cup of Epsom salts and a half-cup of sea or kosher salt with eight drops of your favorite essential oil and four tablespoons of baking soda.
When you make your own, you can adjust the strength of the scent by increasing or decreasing the amount of oil you use. The salts help relieve aching muscles, and the baking soda softens your skin. Choices for essential oils that are soothing and relaxing include lavender, patchouli and sandalwood. Use a quarter of a cup of this mixture in your bathwater, stir until the salts dissolve, and it will feel like heaven. Run a hot bath with the luxurious bath salts you just created.
Look in your bathroom wall cabinets for some candles to light. Roll up a towel to put behind your head, and soak the day's stress away. Play some soothing music and close your eyes. You will find that you have created an experience that couldn't be achieved at even the most expensive spa. Don't forget to turn off your phone!
