Lavender Bath Soak

Making your own bath soak has become a pretty trendy thing to do these days, now that people are much more open to using natural products than they used to be! I know that I like to make my own homemade beauty products so that I know what’s in them (and so that I can save money!). This recipe is one of my favorites, and it only uses a few ingredients that are easy to find. Check out how easy it is to make this inexpensive and relaxing Hippie Mama Lavender Bath Soak!

The use of patchouli essential oil in this lavender bath soak gives this the “hippie” scent. But when combined with the lime for sweetness and the calming lavender, it makes a wonderful combination to help you relax and unwind.

Patchouli is used for relaxation and to ease tension, as well as help your mind focus and calm. It also helps with skin health and can cut down fine lines and wrinkles, so it is a perfect oil for use in the bath. The lime essential oil helps support healthy immune function, uplifts your mood and spirit, and is a great cleanser. Add those to the organic lavender herbs (you can use lavender essential oil if you prefer instead of the herb), and you have just the right combo for a relaxing bath!

Once you are satisfied with the lavender, go ahead and carefully add in your drops of essential oils. The lime is a runny one, being a citrus, so be careful to go slow, or you can easily end up with much more than intended!
