Self-Care Herbal Bath Salts
Let's set the scene, You have had a stressful day and need a moment to unwind and get away from all the noises in your house - If you're lucky:)
This is my favorite moment to set up a bath for some self-care. I like to think of Herbal Bath Salt as the extra MAGIC or secret sauce. Simply add your mixture to a bath for a relaxing energy clearing experience. Collecting and preping is part of the fun to find the perfect combination of herbs and oils for the day's needs.
Everyone's prep might look a little different but here are some of the steps I take while my water is filling-Its rather simple:). During this time I also collect any other items I may desire while I relax. This may include things like a glass of water, books, piece of chocolate, sage smudge, music and candles.
Get all your ingredients in one large bowl and mix it all together.
