Lavender Salt Glow Bath or Shower Formula

Lavender’s unmistakable, relaxing aroma may be the most familiar herbal fragrance of all.

Used for centuries, it has never gone out of favor as a gentle sedative and muscle relaxer. It also works as a painkiller, antidepressant, and tonic strengthener for the whole nervous system. To soothe stress and help you cope, turn to lavender.

Salt glows are complete rubdown/massages with Epsom salts followed by a warm water rinse, and they are ideal for exfoliating skin and renewing spirits. Here is an enhanced salt glow formula using relaxing lavender:

Lavender Salt Glow
Grind 1 cup dried lavender buds in a blender or food processor. Add 3 cups Epsom salts, grind until fine. Store in a glass jar, tightly capped. To use, rinse yourself off in the shower, then turn water off. Pour a handful of bath salts into your palm, and massage gently into your skin all over your body (not your face). Use more as needed. Rinse off, towel dry lightly, and moisturize.
