Bath Salts and Foot Soak
2 cups Epsom Salts
1 cup Borax
1 cup Baking Soda
1/2 cup fine Sea Salt
Use a slotted spoon to blend thoroughly. Be sure to break up any lumpy bits - fingers work well for this.
Add one to two cups to your bathwater or a dishpan of warm to hot water for a foot-soak.
You will find all you need for your bath salt/foot-soak recipe at your local grocery store.
Add essential oils to make this blend special.
For a restful sleep blend add:
25 drops of Lavender
15 drops of Lavender
10 drops of Rosewood
For a pain-relieving foot-soak blend add:
10 drops each of Rosemary and Lavender and 5 drops of Nutmeg.
