Sigh, I miss hot baths more than I can explain.
I know I can still have baths but they have to be lukewarm, warm at best, and I do miss the scalding hot water, sweating away, while the bathroom steams up and I can barely see in front of me.
One thing that hasn't changed, despite the water temperature, is my fascination with bath salts. I am usually the first to seek out these relaxing bath additions that come in a multitude of scents and textures. What's even better than being able to buy them is to make your own!!
Homemade Lavender (or any scent) Bath Salts
3/4 cup Sea Salt
1/4 cup, plus 2 TBSP, Epsom Salts
2 TBSP Baking Soda
A couple drops of your favorite essential oil (Lavender, Rose, etc)
Food coloring if you want to store it and look pretty
Place all the dry ingredients in a bowl and mix together. Add the essential oil and food coloring (if you'd like) and stir until evenly distributed. Place contents in a mason jar to store in the bathroom. Pour into your bathwater and soak to your heart's content!!
Okay, it's Friday and I am so going to go and have a bath now. Happy Friday ladies!
