Bathing is a wonderful way to take the day’s stress away and really relaxes the body before bed — helping the sleepless find sleep. No need to stay in the bath for a long time — even twenty minutes will do.
An indulgent ritual that cares for the self well.
If you want to take it up a notch, I highly recommend a salt bath. Along with the bubble bath that is surely fun for all us to soak in, I recommend the following Salt Bath recipe:
- 1/4 c. Baking Soda
- 1/4 c. Sea Salt
- 1/4 c. Epsom Salt
Adding in this salty combo will not only heal any scrapes and nicks on your skin, but is supposed to remove toxins from the body. This could just be old folklore, but I feel “lighter” having added the salty combo to my baths.
Give it a try! Most of these ingredients we have easily sitting around our kitchen cupboards or in the fridge.
