Long day? I have the perfect nighttime bath salt recipe for you!

Relaxation is so important for the nervous system and overall health, yet relaxing doesn’t come easily for a lot of people.

Back when I was a Massage Therapist, I made a lot of blends to encourage relaxation. One of my favorite ingredients was (and is!) Elemi essential oil. Elemi centers your mind and reassures your heart. It lets stress, over-thinking, and circuitous thoughts just fall away.

Elemi Let Me Relax

So I have a bath salt recipe that’s great for before bed!
4 oz (112 gm) Himalayan salts
10 drops Elemi (Canarium luzonicum)
2 drops Vetiver (Vetiveria zizanoides)
2 drops Myrrh (Commiphora myrrha)
6 drops Frankincense (Boswellia carterii)
Just put your salts in a wide-mouth 4 oz (120 ml) jar. Drop your essential oils into the salt as you stir gently. This recipe makes enough for four baths, with about 5 drops of essential oil per bath. (This dilution is very skin-friendly!)

If your muscles are sore, you can add Epsom salts to this recipe. Just add a half-cup of Epsom salts right to your bath water.

Don’t take baths?

Here are a few other ideas for relaxing with essential oils after a long day.

How many drops?

Try about 10 drops total of essential oil per  1 oz (30 ml) of whatever you are putting it into.

Use the drop-by-drop blending method. For example, if you choose to make a massage oil with the emotionally uplifting and relaxing blend, start by adding 1 drop of Orange and 1 drop of Ylang Ylang and mix them into the coconut oil.

Check your smell often.  Refresh your nose by smelling coffee beans inbetween – it clears the nasal tissue and helps you experience the real fragrance.

If you make one of these blends, please share the results with me in the comments below

    These are some really good suggestions. If people begin to recognize the importance of self awareness and the right to self indulgances, they would be significantly less stressed, healthier and happier.

      Quite true! You are on top of the future of healing…

      Like you state – once the transition comes, and people experience the pleasure of life without toxic food and thought, they will never turn back to live a life filled with indulgene and ignorance.
