That first drop of rain, the humid air, that quiet….it’s all I need to want to light a few candles, get my favorite book, gather my salts, oils and dried herbs and head off to the bath.
Days are filled with kids, kid’s activities, house, animals, work..something needs to give. .something like me..or you. It’s my excuse, or maybe right ..rainy , stormy weather is my time..so , it’s time to relax..
I make my own bath soak..and I add extra herbs, essential oils for what ever I think I need at the time, so can you.
I place 1/2 to 1 cup Epsom salts in first., let the water run a little..then some sea salts..I like Himalayan sea salts
A handful of dried herbs ( usually I go for rosemary, lavender, and add flower petals like roses, hibiscus, plumeria ..
Then about 10 drops of peppermint, lavender, lemongrass essential oils…each ( can add what you want..it’s really up to you )..then relax…read mybook..soak..feel the stress leaving mybody:)…
When I am ready to get out, I take my favorite bath oil..grapefruit and rub my feet,legs , arms…it’s wonderful!
