I am kind of obsessed with these bath salt beauties! I’m whipping up a bunch of these to add on as freebies to my holiday gifts that you guys are ordering and I thought I would share the recipe! I absolutely love taking baths a couple times a week and find these are such a great gift to give and help someone relax just a little bit more! I used about 3/4 c. Epsom salt, 1/4 c. Baking soda, threw in some dried lavender and calendula and then added about 20 drops of essential oils. For the oils I picked Serenity since it is a blend of all the restful oils, Wild Orange because the aroma is one of my favs and smells so fresh, and Eucalyptus because that makes everything smell like a spa and is great for opening up the airways!
The Softest Ever Foot Bath. ☁️🦶🏼🍊 So incredibly healing & calming both for the body and the mind. It always amazes me how deeply a simple warm foot bath can relax you. The warmth travels from toes to the whole body and just melts away the stress. After watching me soak my feet regularly Alva has been also wanting foot baths ever since she was 2. I usually just add warm water, salt and essential oils to our foot baths, but sometimes I drop in some extras. For example lemon, vinegar and salt are brilliant when feet are dry or heels are cracked. I designed this foot bath to the #attheheartofdiabetes campaign which is at the moment sharing information about the complications of type 2 diabetes. There are a lot of minor and severe complications that can come with T2D and you can read more about them through the link in my bio. For people with T2D it is essential to take care of their feet because issues in that area are common for example due to low circulation. Just make sure the water isn’t too hot and that you dry and moisturize your feet well after the bath so that the skin doesn’t dry from the spa. Also skip the soak if your feet have any open cuts or wounds. Next time you feel stressed after the day, give this mini spa a go. It’s a great ritual to have for example just before bed. ✨ Softest Ever Foot Bath ✨ Warm water 3 tbsp sea salt 3 tbsp white vinegar 3 drops Lavender essential oil + 1 tbsp oat milk or vegetable oil (Try also eucalyptus and/or peppermint essential oils for tired feet) a few lemon slices or juices from half a lemon Fill a big bowl or basin with warm water. Stir in the salt and vinegar. Mix the oat milk or oil with the essential oils in a glass/tiny bowl to help to incorporate the essential oil into the water. Pour into the water and stir. Squeeze in some lemon juice too. Submerge your feet in the water and soak them for 20 minutes. Take your feet out of the water and dry them with a towel. Collaboration with
