-calls for a hot soak!
here is my favorite bath salt recipe for relaxing and soothing dried out winter skin.
2 cups coarse-grained salt (kosher, sea, epsom-whatever you have on hand)
1 cup baking soda
1 cup powdered nonfat milk
20 drops lavender essential oil
1/4 cup sweet almond oil
a scoop or two of dried lavender buds and/or chamomile flowers
mix all ingredients together in a glass or porcelain bowl. store in an airtight glass jar/container. scoop out and sprinkle into a bath, mix it all around. i use about 3 scoops (or handfuls). this should last you up to a year.
after a day like today i plan on taking one!
