Many people go to the store to buy lavender bath soak, but the truth is it is easy to make at home using basic ingredients that are affordable and healing to the body, mind, and spirit.

Making Lavender Bath Soak

When I am depressed and physically and mentally drained I like to soak in a bath made with my homemade lavender bath soak. Homemade lavender bath soak is easy to make and helps relieve stress, tension, body aches and pains, depression, and irritability naturally.

To make a homemade lavender bath soak you will need 4 cups of sea salt, 1 cup of baking soda, 2 cups of buttermilk powder and 25 drops of lavender essential oil. You may use french lavender essential oil if your prefer. All ingredients you should be able to find at your local whole food or herbal store.

When you are ready to make the bath soak simply pour all the ingredients into a large bowl and combine them together with a wire whisk for about 2 minutes. After pour the soak into a large jar and container and store near the tub until you are ready to make a relaxing bath with it.

Making a Relaxing Bath

To make a relaxing bath with the homemade lavender bath soak simply pour 3 to 4 cups of the soak directly into the bathtub and allow it to dissolve. As the bath soak dissolves into the water it will turn a milky color and a strong calming lavender aroma will fill the air of the bathroom.

Next get into the tub and soak for as look as need to help you feel better mentally and physically. I know I typically enjoy soaking for an hour, but if you don't have that much time 30 minutes is excellent too.

Best Times to Use The Bath Soak

The best time to use the homemade lavender bath soak is before bedtime when you need help calming down, or even when you are just feeling down in the dumps and in need of a pick me up. Just be careful if you take a lavender bath in the middle of the day because it can cause drowsiness so make sure you have nothing to do if you do decide to take one during the day.

Warnings!

Those of you who are allergic to lavender should not make or use this homemade lavender bath soak recipe because it can cause server allergic reactions.
