A hot, relaxing bath is something we all need to treat ourselves to from time to time. If you sprinkle some healthy ingredients into the water, it makes it even better!
When making these citrus bath salts, combine whatever suits your fancy. Both sea salt and Epsom salt are good options as the base. I tend to use Epsom salt more because it is less expensive and yet still wonderful for you! Epsom salts are detoxifying and one of my favorite things to soak in when dealing with fevers. Fevers occur to help the body get rid of the toxins so it can heal. Soaking in Epsom salts helps to speed the process.
You can use just orange peel and orange essential oil, or lemon peel and lemon essential oil, or combine orange and lemon and even a splash of lime!
Homemade Citrus Bath Salts
Combine all ingredients, making sure to distribute the essential oil(s) well. Add a small handful of the bath salts for a relaxing bath, or add 1 cup to bath for fevers or for a more detoxifying effect. Soak 20-30 minutes.
Which citrus combination would be your favorite for a relaxing bath?
