We have a love-hate relationship with our bathtub. We love it because baths are amazing (duh). We hate it because we rarely get to use it. If there’s ever an opportunity to utilize an underused tub, it’s called the weekend. Whether you’re in need of some detoxifying or simply want to enjoy a little R&R, keep reading for these easy-to-try bath recipes!
Try a skin-softening Milk Bath. Cleopatra was a fan, so you’re guaranteed to feel pampered post-soak. The combination of almond meal, oats, and milk are designed to soothe skin and ease irritation. Add your favorite essential oil, like hydrating rose oil, for a boost of moisture.
- 1/2 cup powdered milk
- 1 tablespoon almond meal
- 1 tablespoon oat or barley flour
- 3-5 drops of essential oil
Settle into a Lavender Eucalyptus Salt Soak. While Epsom salt are designed to alleviate aches and pains, lavender will reduce tension and inflammation. Eucalyptus is also great for relieving muscle pain—and smells lovely.
- 2 cups Epsom salt
- 1/2 dry lavender
- 5 drops lavender essential oil
- 10 drops eucalyptus oil
While a Honey and Chamomile Bubble Bath certainly sounds grown-up, the bubbles are guaranteed to bring out your inner kid. Chamomile is known for its anti-inflammatory properties, and honey helps enhance the aromatic effects of the chamomile.
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/4 cup light almond oil
- 1/2 gentle liquid soap
- 5-7 chamomile tea bags
