Last night we had such a fun Christmas party to pamper our essential oil customers complete with yummy snacks and several DIY essential oil crafts. One was this cute test tube of Lavender Bath Salts! Check out the recipe below!
One way that I raise funds for this ministry helping burned patients in developing countries around the world is by being a distributor for essential oils! These are products I love and use for my own family! I am committed to living as toxin free as possible - what I eat, what I put on my skin, and what I breathe. We use Young Living products for all things CLEAN - over the counter products, body care, makeup and skin care, supplements, oils, etc. Ditch the chemicals and GO CLEAN!! It's good for your budget and good for your family!

Lavender Bath Salts
(Test Tube recipe - full one below)
1/3 cup Epsom salt
1 teaspoon lavender buds
3 drops Young Living lavender oil

***NOTES: Epsom salt, named for a bitter saline spring at Epsom in Surrey, England, is not actually salt but a naturally occurring pure mineral compound of magnesium and sulfate. Stress drains the body of magnesium and increases levels of adrenaline. When dissolved in warm water, Epsom salt is absorbed through the skin and replenishes the level of magnesium in the body. Magnesium helps to produce serotonin, a mood-elevating chemical within the brain that creates a feeling of calm and relaxation. Research shows that magnesium also increases energy and stamina by encouraging the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), the energy packets made in the cells. The sulfates in Epsom salt help flush toxins and heavy metals from the cells, easing muscle pain and helping the body to eliminate harmful substances. Your skin is a highly porous membrane and adding the right minerals to your bathwater triggers a process called reverse osmosis, which actually pulls salt out of your body, and harmful toxins along with it. Experts believe that bathing with Epsom salts a minimum of three times each week is beneficial to your health. Ideally you want to use 1-2 cups of salts in your warm bath and soak at least ten minutes so make up a bulk supply. 3 cups epsom salt, 2 cups sea salt, 1 cup baking soda, 15 drops essential oil!
