HEALING BATH SALTS
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. Many bath products for children can be full of unwanted ingredients. I feel that it can have a negative effect on their health. That is not very beneficial when they are fighting a cold. I began making bath salts out of Himalayan sea salt and epsom salt to help them relax in the warm tub. I found that they began to feel better faster using these ‘healing bath salts’.
Here is my favorite recipe:
*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.
HOW TO USE
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.
