Relax, Get To It

I have to admit that I've been a little stressed out lately. Between piano lessons, Italian class, my day job, my freelance job and life in general - I am finding little time to decompress. I could really go for a long, hot bath right about now. Unfortunately, I don't have a bath tub in my apartment! Bummer, huh? Well, my brother and his wife have three in their house - I think they can spare one for a couple hours.
At any rate, today I received the latest Goop newsletter (yes, I subscribe to Gwyneth Paltrow's newsletter - so what?!!) and it contained a recipe for a"winter bath" soak. Apparently, the bath's ingredients offer numerous benefits, including helping to calm the nervous system, and tension and muscle pain relief. Think I'll whip this bad boy up and headed to my bro's!
  • 1 Cup bath sea salt
  • 1 tbsp almond oil or 2 tbsp whole milk
  • 3 drops sweet orange essential oil
  • 3 drops lavender essential oil
  • 1 - 2 drops ginger essential oil
  • Mix together
