We've come to rely on our homemade eucalyptus oatmeal bath salts because it offers the perfect solution for winding down after a tough day, while boosting the immune system.
Epsom salt is great for restoring magnesium, reduces anxiety, aids in muscle function, reduces inflammation, and even improves sleep.
Eucalyptus oil is an anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory oil that helps with mental exhaustion, muscle pain and opening the airways (think allergies and sinuses). It also known to stimulate the immune system response to help combat illness.
And last but not least, oatmeal calms cranky skin that's all riled up from the dry winter we just left behind us.
