Christmas is quickly approaching and I have been stressing out a little. This past week my son has been sick and my time was focused on him. Once the week was over I realized how close we were to Christmas and it threw me for a whirlwind. So I have been a busy bee this weekend trying to make up for lost time.
I promised a recipe using the Chamomile / Calendula infused oil recipe that I posted, and this is one of them… Bath Salts! I love soaking in the tub after a long stressful day, especially after the kind of days I had last week, taking care of a sick kiddo. I think the combination of Chamomile and Lavender is the perfect relaxing combination, Traditional Medicinals makes a great relaxing Chamomile Lavender tea that I LOVE!
- 8 oz Epsom salt
- 1/8 cup Chamomile / Calendula Infused Oil (or any other carrier oil)
- 1/8 cup organic unrefined Coconut oil
- organic Lavender Essential Oil ( I used Edens Garden)
- Chamomile flowers
- 8 oz glass jar with lid
1. In a medium bowl pour in your Epsom salt.
2. In a smaller bowl, warm the coconut oil slowly until it is liquid (this happens quickly). Combine the coconut oil with the Chamomile / Calendula Oil and pour onto the Epsom salt. (If you did not strain your Infused oil previously, it is okay, mix the the herbs and the oil and measure your amount to add)
3. Mix and keep mixing until the oils and salts are well incorporated. Next add the essential oil. Start with four drops – only you know how much is too much. You can add more, but you will never be able to take it back out. Once you are satisfied with the amount, combine with the Epsom salts.
4. When layering in the jar, begin by adding some chamomile flowers then a layer of the salts and repeat until done.
5. To use, add a few spoonfuls to a hot bath and enjoy! Be careful, the oils can make the tub slippery.
