      2 cups Epsom salt

      It is so cheap and yet has so much power! Epsom salt is magnesium sulfate crystals. Magnesium, a naturally occurring mineral, performs more functions in the body than almost any other. It helps to regulate some 325 enzymes in the body and also plays a vital role in muscle control, electrical impulses, energy production and toxic elimination. The sulfates in epsom salt are vital in forming brain tissue and joint proteins, stimulating the pancreas to kick out digestive enzymes and releasing the body’s build-up of medicines and environmental contaminants. Magnesium and sulfates are easily absorbed through the skin. Since Epsom salt is not really a salt, it will not dry the skin & can actually help to moisturize it. It will also help to ease stress, lower blood pressure, relieve sore muscles, & boost your energy. So start soaking!

      It is recommended that you pour the Epsom salt under running warm water in the bathtub. Lay back and soak for at least 12 minutes, up to three times per week. You can make it more interesting by adding a few drops of your favorite essential oil like lavender.

          1/2 cup powdered whole milk
          1/2 cup dried hibiscus or rose petals
          3 to 5 drops rose essential oil
          heat sealable tea bags

          Mix the milk and essential oil together until evenly distributed. Gently mix in the dried petals. Put a few spoonfuls of the mixture in a large, sealable teabag and seal bags with an iron. Makes about 4 tub teas.

          These make lovely gifts!

          A good quality organic cocoa is the first ingredient in a romantic chocolate bath. Mix one cup of cocoa with two cups of milk, soy milk, rice milk, or goats milk. The milk helps to breakdown old dead skin cells. Add half a cup of honey and whip until frothy (an immersion blender works well).

          Pour a very warm bath, adding the frothed milk chocolate right at the end. Just before stepping into the tub, pour a large glass of ice wine or champagne into the bath. The wine has exfoliating and antioxidant properties. Pour a second glass for yourself or to share with your lover.

          If you and your bath mate are playful take a bar of dark chocolate (70% is optimum) with you to nibble on or finger paint with while sipping wine in your chocolate bath.

          The chocolate, wine, and milk will leave your skin soft, sexy, and glowing. The smell of chocolate will follow you all day.

          This one I am going to try tonight! I have dry skin and love to soak in the tub with anything that will help to soften my skin. I also happen to have all of the ingredients in my home already.

          8 fl oz honey
          16 fl oz milk
          16 tbsp sea salt
          4 tbsp baking soda
          4 fl oz baby oil

          In a large bowl combine the honey, milk, sea salt and baking soda, stir well. Pour the mixture into a bath full of running water and then add the baby oil. Mix the water up well. Make fresh each time of use.

        • So I just tried the “HOMEMADE BATH OIL” and definitely enjoyed it. Next time though I will use only 2 oz of baby oil instead of 4 oz. I felt a little too slimy coming out of the bath. My husband would love it though, he steps out of the shower and slathers baby oil all over himself. I also will add something for fragrance like some rose petals. And don’t worry about mixing up the honey, milk, baking soda and sea salt too well because the warm water of the bath helps to dissolve and blend it.
