T O O L S:
- 1c Epsom salt
- 1/4 c Sweet Almond Oil--I use just a little less than this
- Mixing utensil--I used a chopstick
M E T H O D:
- Pour salt into container. I like glass best. In fact, the one I'm using is an old salsa jar! Recycle those jars!
- Pour sweet almond oil into the salt and mix.
- To use, scoop out a handful or two, and pour into running water.
- Relax for a bit!
T I P S:
- Sweet Almond Oil can be purchased in health food stores or online. I've seen it for $5 and up. Do not use almond extract.
- This should yield a few applications, but the recipe can easily be doubled/adjusted. Sometimes, I'll add less oil and or more salt.
- Be sure to mix before using, as the oil will settle to the bottom. It keeps for a couple of weeks.
- Oily is naturally slippery, so be careful entering/exiting the bath.
- Feel free to substitute Epsom salt for rock salt, and olive oil for almond oil.
- As always, I'm not a dr. or qualified to give medical advice, so ask your dr. before using, especially if pregnant.
