From time to time most of us can really use a really good hot bathtub soak to help relieve stress to our tired muscles. A long soak can also help calm us down, relax, and help with mental stress. There is a reason the “Calgon, take me away” campaign was so successful for so many years: time in the tub can really help mentally and physically.

Tor someone who fights chronic inflammation this DIY Inflammation Fighting Bath Salts may be quite helpful. The bergamot is very calming and good for your skin. The Lemongrass Oil can help relieve muscle tension. If you apply Lemongrass Oil directly to and area of sore muscles after a bath (or anytime really), it may help to help loosen tight muscles.

This particular recipe features borax in its base ingredients as well, which alone is a needed mineral for anti-inflammation and overall bone health. Borax itself is normally thought of as being something you use to wash clothes in and so people do no not usually of it as being safe for use in things like bath salts – but if you think about it, your clothing touches your skin all day long. Here are some common uses for Borax! It is made up of sodium, boron, oxygen & water. Boron actually an essential nutrient. We usually get our boron intake from nuts, fruits and vegetables (usually via chickpeas, almonds, walnuts, legumes, bananas, avocado, broccoli, prunes, oranges, red grapes, apples, raisins, pears, and vegetables).

  1. This looks awesome Ann! I had a car accident when I was 36 weeks pregnant with Smoochie Girl (who was 11lbs at birth) and, 2 more babies later my back is in terrible shape! I bet that lemon makes the bathroom smell wonderful after a hot bath too. Lemon EO is one of my favorite scents. I used to put a couple of drops on a cotton ball and smell it when I was studying 🙂

    • Oh no! I am so sorry you had to go through that, Jay. I love lemon essential oils too (heck I love lemon in just about anything and everything!) If you have a good soak recommendation, I’d love for you to share!

      • Good morning!

        I just wanted to thank you for this post and for your invitation to share. It’s so funny the things that we forget but, this conversation and your recipe reminded me of a time when I was much better about self-care and taking time out for myself (mostly because my body forced me to!) The recipe I was given by my (past) craniosacral practitioner was:

        1c epsom salt
        1/2c Rhassoul Clay
        10 drops Sandalwood EO
        15 drops Lavender EO
        15 drops Roman Chamomile EO

        Thanks again for the important reminder to slow down 🙂 Enjoy your day!

  2. This is wonderful! I have terrible rheumatoid and osteo arthritis and am always looking for natural ways to decrease inflammation! I will have to give this a try, it has to be better then the toxic cocktail I am currently on. Sharing with my followers!! Thanks for lining up with Inspire Me Monday. Have a wonderful week!!

  3. Oh how I need this on a daily basis!!! I just got started in oils and am always looking for great ways to use them! Pinning and trying asap!! #HomeMattersParty
