Occasionally, when the kids aren’t feeling well, I put some healing bath salts into their bath. I found that it speeds up recovery, makes them feel better and helps them sleep. Here is my favorite recipe:
1/4 Cup Pure Pink Himalayan Sea Salt
1/2 Cup Pure Epsom Salt
1/2 Tablespoon Sunflower Oil*
10 Drops Pure Lavender Essential Oil
Mix together in a bowl.
*Add more or less sunflower oil to desired consistency. I like mine pretty dry, that way the tub does not get too slippery for the kids. You can also use grape-seed oil, almond oil or olive oil, depending on your preference.
After you combine all the ingredients, pour into a sealable container, preferably plastic for safety.
Add about 1 tablespoon of bath salt mixture to the bathtub. I do not recommend for children under the age of 1 year. Essential oils can be too strong for infants.
I hope you enjoy this mixture as much as my children and I do!
