So much sickness going around! I’ve given a few recipes for warding off sickies, but what do you do when you are sick?
Well, my favorite solution is a nice, hot bath with either Epsom or Himalayan salts.
So this recipe is for making a batch of bath salts. This should last 3-4 baths. I personally like a LOT of salt in my bath, so I add about an ounce of these and then add more plain salt to the bath.
Beat That Virus!
Bath Salt Recipe
4 oz Himalayan or Epsom salts
2 tsp jojoba oil/wax
5 drops of Frankincense (Boswelia frereana)
4 drops Lavender (Lavendula angustifolia)
3 drops Mandarin (Citrus reticulata)
2 drops Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus globulus)
2 drops Black Spruce (Picea mariana)
Mix the oils into the jojoba and the mix the jojoba into the salts. Use about 1 oz per bath.
This blend is NOT safe for children, check the subs below for child-safe ideas!
You can use any liquid-at-room-temperature carrier oil. I usually switch between Fractionated Coconut Oil and Jojoba. You can also use olive oil or whatever liquid oil you have on hand.
You can use Ho Wood for Lavender
I hope this helps when you are down with sickies. This can be made ahead of time and stored in a glass jar, ready for when those germs hit!
