Happy winter, sorry I have not written. Life speeds by faster then I can keep up. I did have a Christmas Theme and it might have been my favorite. I guess I should post something about it :-O LOL. A lot of my focus has been my health, trying to be in the moment and being available to my family/friends, but still be true to me. No DRAMA is my theme!! I have been meaning to post this recipe for a while. This came about when I was working out hard and having lots of sore muscles. Plus I have been doing a veggie detox on and off. I wanted to make a soak for my bath that addressed sore muscles, stress and detoxing. I love this stuff and keep a double batches by my bath. I also made jars of this as Christmas gifts for everyone. It's simple and it feels wonderful in a long, hot bath!!
Detox Mustard Bath Mix
1 cup dried ground yellow mustard
1 cup finely ground oats or oat flour
2 cups Epsom salt
1½ baking soda
4-6 drops lemon oil
1-3 TBL rose water or 4 drops of rose oil
4-6 drops lavender oil
Sift the first 4 ingredients together in a large bowl. Made sure you a big bowl, so you have plenty of room to work in. Next sprinkle in the rose water, lemon and lavender. I start by using a whisk to mix. I smell and add more oil if wanted. Next I use my hands to finish mixing. I feel for large clumps and mash them with my fingers. Once I feel like it is fairly mixed I transfer the mixture to a large glass jar.
I have a pretty big bath tub, so I use 2 cups. If you have a small tub try 1 1/2 cup but use a good amount to really get the benefits. After bath rinse yourself and the tub with cool water.
