I told him I'd concoct a bath for him so we could get in there and work on releasing some tension in his body. His back, legs, arms ect all felt like one giant brick! He had trouble walking, go figure he was moving 9 hrs straights out of that 11.5. So proud of him!!!
1. Essential Oils of pure form something like oils from doTERRA
I usually open mine up then rinse afterwards.)
I never use measured amounts, usually just eyeball it.
But if I had to guess I would say....
Do all of this while to tub is filling up:
1. Start out with you epsom salts and sprinkle a med handful in.
2. Take the tea and either drop or sprinkle in.
(Mix both well! You don't want lobster hot water but you do want it def warm.)
3. Add a small amount of olive oil
(This does make the tub slippy so use with caution)
4. Count out 25-35 drops of essential peppermint oil
(You want to have a slight cooling effect on the skin)
5. Continually mix until you're ready to get in!
**Try to let your body soak for 15-30 min, some people find the peppermint to be too intense and can only stay in for 10. It has a Biofreeze effect on your body and gets in there to soothe those muscles.
My husband asked me to work on some of his muscles while he soaked and the olive oil gives PERFECT slip to do just that. He also commented afterwards that his skin no longer felt tight or dehydrated. (Loosing all that water when sweating is murder on your skin) He's requested another before the week is out seeing as he feels better but now needs to tend to 2nd stage healing.
The good thing also is if you have a headache this will help as well :)
Hope you like this and it helps!
Have a wonderful day!
