Natural Bath Soak with Lavender

One of my goals each month this year is to try two new personal homemade bath products that I've pinned on my Homemade Bath Products board on Pinterest.

The "recipe" for the homemade bath product for this week was a natural bath soak. The pin said that for 20 minutes once a week, put a handful of Epsom or sea salt, ten drops of lavender essential oil, and 1/2 cup of baking soda in a hot bath.

This combination supposedly draws out toxins, lowers stress-related hormones, and balances your pH levels. Did it do that? I don't know. It did smell relaxing and peaceful, and I stayed much longer than 20 minutes in the bathtub.

So, even if it didn't do what it says it would do, for me it was worthwhile to try something new and take some self-care time. That's always a good thing to do.

Oh that sounds so relaxing! I used to love the occasional soak when I had a bathtub and lavender is wonderful. :)
