One of my favorite ways to unwind after a busy day is by taking a bath. A bath paired with aromatherapy can not only help you relax but also be designed to give you benefits you crave.
In general, aromatherapy baths help reduce stress and anxiety, alleviate muscular aches, pains, and tension, soothe fatigue, stimulate circulation, improve tone and health of skin, and aid detoxification.
Our Hibiscus Skin Repair Bath Salts recipe is formulated to uplift, relax, and repair skin damage brought on by the sun.
For this recipe, we’ll need:
- 1 cup Epsom Salt*
- 1 Tbsp Almond Oil
- 1 Tbsp Dried Hibiscus Flowers
- 5 drops Head Soothing Essential Oil Blend
- 5 drops Grapefruit Essential Oil
