During my 5th pregnancy, it seemed like my saving grace every day was a long soak in the tub. I’d use Epsom salts to assist my legs with restlessness.
I had RLS with pregnancies #3 and #4 along with what seemed to be a pregnancy-induced carpal tunnel. Thankfully both times it was gone along with the belly, but it was a hard challenge. The magnesium in the Epsom salt bath was so life-giving for my body and especially my tired muscles.
We also use bath salts almost nightly for our 4-year-old daughter who suffers from autoimmune issues including severe eczema, and my husband loves to soak after hard workouts at Crossfit.
When I came across this recipe last week, I knew I needed to make it for my girls and myself.
+1/2C Epsom Salt
+1/4C Pink Himalayan Salt
+1/8C Baking Soda
+5-10 drops each:
Lavender Essential Oil
Rose Essential Oil
Ylang Ylang Essential Oil
