Try This Simple Bath Soak Recipe at Home

Here is a quick and simple recipe for a basic unscented bath soak you can try at home. This can be made with ingredients found right in your kitchen, and customized to fit your personal preferences.
Simply mix:

2 parts salt ( sea salt, epsom salt, or a combination of both)
1 part baking soda

Mix together well, and pour under warm running water, swish around to dissolve.
This can be stored in a zip lock bag for later use. (dry ingredients only)
It's that easy.

Mix in additives to customize this simple recipe to fit your needs. For a moisturizing bath, add a tbs of base oil, sweet almond oil, jojoba oil, or even olive oil to the bath water (be careful tub will be slippery). You may also add any combination of essential oils, or dried flowers and herbs that you like. For dry skin you can mix in some ground oatmeal which is soothing to all types of skin. You may also float thinly sliced pieces of orange or lemon in the tub for an uplifting citrus soak. Another option would be to add whole dried milk (powdered milk) which has skin softening lipids and is good for all types of skin. You can make this as simple or be as creative as you like, the sky is the limit. Have fun, relax, and enjoy!
