3 Cups Epson Salts
1 Cup Baking Soda
30 Drops Lavender Essential Oil
Place the Epson Salts in the glass bowl.
Stir in 1 cup of baking soda.

Place in airtight glass containers.
Use 1-2 Tablespoons in a bath. Soak for 15-30 minutes while the Lavender relaxes and calms you. Theory says that you will absorb some of the magnesium from the Epson Salts through your skin. This is good for your health as many people don’t get enough magnesium in their diet. The baking soda helps to leave your skin moisturized and silky smooth.
