Recipe: healing bath salts

6 drops essential oil or essential oil blend
about a tablespoon almond oil
about 1/3 cup epsom salts

Stir the ingredients together. Run a bath. Soak for a few moments and then add the salt mixture. (Don't add it while the water is running, or the oil won't disburse, it will just float on top of the water.) Enjoy the aromatherapy! The salts are great for aches and pains, and they may help you sleep well after your bath, too.

Note: a little oil will float on top of the water. That's ok. It will softly coat your skin when you exit the bath (nice for eczema-prone skin). In my experience, this recipe makes the oils disburse more than when I don't use the salts.
