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 essential oil is one of my all time faves. It has so many uses including sleep! If you want to relax and unwind, this is the oil for you. It works awesome in many DIY beauty recipes like the one I’m sharing today.
Magnesium is also great for relaxation and calming. It works together with the lavender essential oil to create a wonderful experience.
Make a batch for yourself or to give as a gift. I know you and your gift recipient will love it. Melt that stress away….
