Herbal Bath Salts

Using bath salts is beneficial for so many reasons. They can soothe sore muscles, reduce tension, clear the respiratory tract, promote better sleep, detoxify pollutants, cleanse the skin, and be a great tool in regular self-care. They also make thoughtful gifts. There’s nothing like extending the invitation for a loved one to take a little time out to nourish themselves and decompress. I’ve got one of my favourite bath salt recipes to share with you, it features herbs that clear the lungs and stimulate circulation. I use this whenever I feel the first signs of an illness coming on and when colder weather has gotten into my bones.
