Feeling stressed and overwhelmed already? You will find this diy bath salts recipe very helpful.
The holidays are fast approaching, and if you are like the majority of the female human species, you are stressed.
Yes, I said it, STRESSED!
I know, I know that we tend to lean toward the “Wonder Woman” complex.
But come on, let’s be real, we are not “Wonder Woman” and life does stress us out from too many obligations and responsibilities, especially around the holidays.
There are dinners to plan, gifts to buy, parties to attend, and more than likely children related events that demand your attention and presence.
With all that running we tend to lose focus on our own personal mental and physical self.
So I am saying take a breath, run a bath, light a candle, dim the lights and enjoy this amazing diy bath salts recipe with Himalayan salts and vanilla and patchouli essential oils.
Himalayan Pink Salts are fantastic natural detoxifiers. They promote better skin hydration, along with having the ability to control the levels of water within your body and regulate the pressure in your blood vessels.
Combined with Vanilla essential oil, which is a natural sedative and Patchouli essential oil, which is a natural antidepressant, you have the perfect combination to wash your cares away.
Using some fractionated coconut oil is important to dilute the essential oils and help it mix with water safely, as well as, help aid absorption into the salt crystals for better results.
Remember, whenever you add oil to the bath IT CAN MAKE THE BATHTUB SLIPPERY! Always be careful getting into and out of the tub, and CLEAN THE TUB WELL AFTERWARDS so the next family member, or yourself, does not fall and get injured!
And since you will be already making a batch of vanilla-patchouli bath salts for yourself, you might as well triple the recipe and use the extra as gifts!
With the calm, relaxing scents of the vanilla and patchouli, these bath salts are the perfect homemade gift to give to friends and family.
Pour in cute glass jars, add a matching label and you have instant gifts, with no stress! But I suggest waiting till after you have had a chance to sneak away and enjoy a long soak with your vanilla-patchouli bath salts.
If you have never used a certain essential oil it is important to do a skin patch test prior to topically using! See my sections on topical use and other essential oil safety concerns:
