With the kids out of school your days may be non-stop fun right now- which can leave your body feeling the effects!
At the end of the day, treat yourself to a relaxing, tension reducing soak in the tub. Revive tired, sore muscles and rejuvenate your mind after a whirlwind day of swimming, sun and fun!
Grapefruit essential oil is a welcomed change from the traditional relaxation fragrances and is perfect for summer. Your body may need to relax once the kids are in bed, but your mind will benefit from the invigorating boost of grapefruit giving you just enough energy to finish the day doing something for yourself- like reading another chapter of that book you’ve been working on or enjoying a glass of wine on the deck J
Airtight Jar or Container
In a large bowl, combine the salt and the essential oil.
Stir well until all of the essential oil has been evenly distributed throughout the salt.
The essential oil will add a subtle orange color to the mixture. You can stop here and package up the bath soak, or you can add a little mica powder for extra color.
I used a tiny amount of red mica powder and mixed the salt thoroughly until it was a pretty pink- perfect for Pink Grapefruit!
Carefully transfer the salt mixture into your container. If you choose one with a tight neck like I did, use a kitchen funnel for easier filling.
Add a small amount to warm running bath water and enjoy! Soak away the stress of the day and relax your sore muscles for 20-30 minutes. You’ll feel revived in no time!
