By  |  0 Comments

Weekends. Our two-day escape from our hectic work week. A day where it’s totally acceptable to lounge around in your pajamas into the late afternoon hours. A day where it’s totally okay to order delivery and get lost in a 8-hour Netflix binge. A day where you should totally pamper yourself. And what better way to pamper yourself than with a relaxing bubble bath, a bottle of wine (wine just makes any experience better) and some sweet sounds. Whether you’re looking to relieve some of the work week stresses from your body or just relax your mind, I found a few DIY pampering recipes for your bath worth trying this weekend. Your body will thank you… and you can just thank me later.

Epsom salt not only makes for a relaxing bath but it’s a wonderful exfoliating treatment that will leave your skin radiant and glowing. If you find your body sore from working out, Epsom salt is also known to ease pain and relieve inflammation, making it beneficial in the treatment of sore muscles and even migraines.

What You’ll Need:

  • Epsom salt
  • Optional: Your favorite essential oils (Lavender is highly recommend), dried herbs, vanilla.
