Homemade Lavender Salt Soak Recipe
I've begun to notice during my travels throughout Europe that lavender is everywhere...and I do mean everywhere. I mentioned to a friend back home that I'd seen bags of dried lavender for about .50 at several farmers markets, and she asked me to bring some home for her.
After doing a bit of research on lavender, I was excited to find that um, hello, lavender is calming and soothing!! It can even help you sleep!
How to Make this Homemade Lavender Salt Soak Recipe
What you need:
- 2 tablespoons dried lavender
- 1 cup Epsom salt
- optional: 1-2 drops of quality lavender essential oil to help enhance the scent.
Also optional, but very helpful, is a muslin bag to put everything in.
This will allow the water to dissolve the salt, but keep all of the lavender neatly contained so there will be nothing left after the bath that needs to be cleaned way or removed from the drain.
These particular bags on Amazon can also be cleaned, dried and reused a few times.
Combine the sat and dried lavender (along with optional essential oil) together in a dish or muslin bag. If using a bag, secure the top tightly so nothing is able to come out.
Allowing the mix to rest for a couple of days will help further infuse the salt with the restful and relaxing scent of lavender.
When ready, simply toss in the bath and allow the water to do the rest. Soak for at least 20 minutes to get the full benefit.
Enjoy, and happy bath time!
