If you’re like us, working on your homestead can be stressful and nothing is more relaxing than a stress away bath!
With all the chores of running a homestead who has the energy and stamina to keep going when the going gets tough? Not to mention the sore muscles from turning the compost or cleaning out the coop. One thing about living on a small farm is that you get your exercise on a daily basis without having to go to the gym! But what’s a girl to do when you can’t move the next day?
We love home remedies and making our own products and making a stress away bath salt is no different.
This particular recipe provides many benefits on all levels. It works on your muscles, your mind and your spirit. You’ll start with bath water as hot as you can stand. The hot water will relax your tired muscles and help with a bit of detoxing. The salts trigger your liver to let go of toxins and your body sweats out the day’s toxins. The essential oils you add gives provides your heart and spirit with balance after a hard day’s work.
Be sure you stay in the bath for a minimum of 20 minutes. This gives your stress away bath salts time to work to their fullest. We recommend using whichever essential oils appeal to you. Stress Away is an obvious choice, but also Joy, Peace and Calming or even something more potent like Frankincense promotes healthy bodies.
