I always sleep better after a nice hot bath before bed. My body feels so relaxed and at ease. I’ve made it a part of my bedtime routine because it puts me into “sleep mode”. I use bath bombs to enhance that relaxation effect. You can buy them or make your own like this easy Lavender & Magnesium Soak. It will get you in the right frame of body and mind for some must-needed shut eye.
Lavender & Magnesium Soak
½ cup Epsom salt
¼ cup magnesium flakes
1 teaspoon dried lavender flowers
1-2 drops of lavender essential oil, optional
1 tiny drop of purple food colouring, optional
Use a small soft spatula to combine the optional drop of food colouring and essential oil into the Epsom salt. Fold in the lavender flowers and magnesium.
Add to your warm or hot bath and allow to fully dissolve. For the most benefit, soak for at least 20 minutes before bed.
