I like to think that there are two types of people in this world: shower people and bath people. I've always been on the shower side, and yet I've kind of been flirting with the bath side recently. It seems so luxurious and relaxing to just soak away in a scented tub with bubbles. Like you could drift away to a carefree world. Mmmm...I think I'm relaxing here just thinking about it. 

With the stress of work, family, friends and the looming V-Day deadline upon us, I think we all deserve a little time to decompress. So here are three simple DIY bath soaks for the best bath ever.

#1 Sweet Almond Bath Soak 


What You Need: 
1 Cup Epsom Salt 
1/4 Cup Sweet Almond Oil 
Container, Mixing utensil 
 
How To: 
Mix the salt and oil together in container. Run bath and add a handful or two of the bath soak mixture.

#2 Lavender Salt Bath Soak 


What You Need: 
1/2 Cup Lavender Buds 
1/2 Cup Epsom Salt 
Cheesecloth, Pantyhose or Muslin 
String or Yarn 

How To: 
Put lavender buds in cheesecloth or, if you have pantyhose on hand, cut off the toe section and put in there. Tie the makeshift ball to your faucet (as pictured). Turn on water, so that the lavender becomes infused. Add Epsom salts to running hot water.

#3 Deep Detox Bath Soak 


What You Need: 
1/3 Cup Epsom salts
1/3 Cup Sea Salt
1/3 Cup Baking Soda
2 1/2 Tsp ground ginger
1 Cup Apple Cider Vinegar

How To: 
Combine all dry ingredients and leave off to side. Run hot bath and add the vinegar to the bath, then add dry ingredients.

@Sue W You can normally find sea salts for baths beside the epsom salts in the drugstore, normally in the first aid or pain reliever aisles.

These are incredible! I love the smell of almond oil, so I'll probably try that one!

Is the sea salt like the kind you use to cook or eat?? Sorry if this is a dumb question!
