Relaxing Bath Soak

Its easy to make your own, inexpensive bath soak. To ease muscle aches, try epsom salts. They are a natural muscle and nervous system relaxant. Just throw 2 handfuls of salts into a hot bath and soak yourself. Milk also makes an ideal additive for itchy or dry skin; add a cupful of milk powder. It's also great for dispersing essential oils - just add 4-5 drops of your favourite oil to the milk powder before adding to bath. I mix both salts and milk powder/essential oils together, with some oatmeal and bicarbonate of soda, aswell as dried lavender flowers in a nice pottery container that I keep in the bathroom. (This is a combination of several different recipes but I like to cover all bases...!!)
