Greetings beloveds,

Whoooo this has been quite a week and even more of a somersault of a year. Winter is here and that means bath season. Taking a ritual bath (or being a bit inventive with your shower) can be a great way to heal ourselves physically, mentally, and emotionally.

I always take my baths with epsom salt, baking soda, and essential oils. Here’s my base for an amazing bath.

2 pounds of Epsom salt (yes this may seem like a lot)

2 tablespoons of baking soda

From here you can personalize your bath to meet your needs. Here are some areas to help you figure out how you might like to build you bath. Please make not to read up on the use of some plants, herbs, and essential oils as some are not safe to be ingested or used topically.
