We all have those days….right???

There are those days (sometimes everyday) that I need a good hot bath.  Sometimes it because I am sore from a good workout and other days are because I literally need to wash the day off.  Baths are like reset for me.  They reboot this operating system.  To take a bath from a reset to a full on therapeutic experience, I add baking soda and epsom salt. I keep a mixture  epsom salt and baking soda in my bathroom so I can easily add them to a bath as the water runs. 

Benefits of Epsom Salt:

Soothes sore muscles

Promotes relaxation

Smooths skin

Reduces inflammation


Benefits of Baking Soda:

Detoxes and alkalizes the body

Absorbs heavy metals

Exfoliates and smooths skin

Soothes itching and skin irritation

A soak of at least 20 minutes all the way to one hour is recommended to maximize the effects of epsom salt and baking soda. For increased benefits I add about 10 drops of essential oil to the water such as lavender, sage, eucalyptus or lemon. I am sure to select essential oils that are pure and have been created in a way that they function as nature intended (therapeutically). 

Another fun way to get your epsom salts, baking soda and essential is to make bath bombs.  The recipe that I have found to work the best is below:

1 C baking soda

1/2 C epsom salt

1 C citric acid

1/2 C corn starch

1/2 C fractionated coconut oil

Color of your choice

Essential oils of your choice

One more amazing thing I add it to turn on my diffuser and letting therapeutic essential oils diffuse into the air in a way that supports my relaxation. I will post more on how this works but please do try it for yourself if you haven’t already.


Cheers to relaxation, rest and rebooting!
