DIY Beauty Fridays: Muscle Relaxing Bath Soak

Check out her sore feet!  Courtesy of
After 6 years without ballet in my life, I took my first class last night...and am beyond sore. I guess kickboxing/boxing really doesn't work out the same muscles after all.
Needless to say, my poor worn down body and mind could use some R&R. Which is why a relaxing bath soak is absolutely necessary tonight.

I should begin by saying that bath soaks are probably the easiest thing to make as long as you have Epson Salts on hand. (If you are into DIYing like I am then keep a ginormous bag of Epson Salts in the house.  You'd be amazed how many things you can make with it.) The fun of bath soaks/salts is you can add whatever fragranced oil to it for a completely different smell and treatment.  So, the concoctions are completely endless!

Muscle Relaxing Bath Soak 

4 cups Epson salt
4-6 drops Lavender oil (add more if you REALLY want to zen out)

Add all items to a hot bath and soak your muscle tension away.  Another option is to add a few drops of eucalyptus oil in addition to the lavender, and your muscles will really thank you.

Try this recipe out ladies and tell me what you think.  Or, better yet, tell me how your sore muscles feel afterwards!

Happy Friday!



  1. I've tried it with both lavender and eucalyptus, and love both! I missed it during my pregnancy bc they advise not to soak with Epsom when pregs:( I haven't started up again yet and my muscles r dying for it so now I'm inspired:)

  2. Def. one to try out after a workout! Can't wait! xo

  3. Oooh sounds heavenly on a Friday night!

  4. I love bath soaks! definitely going to try this one out :)

  5. Great tip! I need to start trying this after my workouts with my personal trainer.

  6. I like anything with lavender and this sounds great.:D
