3 Homemade Relaxing Herbal Bath Salt Recipes

As stay at home mothers, we spend almost all of our waking hours taking care of the children, cleaning the home, preparing meals and doing the family errands. When was the last time that you did something relaxing just for yourself? If you had to pause for a moment to think about your answer, then it has been too long.

When I take time out just for myself, I enjoy taking a long hot bath. I like to fill up my bathtub with some homemade bath salts and while I am soaking, read a good book. These baths help to relax me after a long busy day.

The following recipes are really easy to make.
