With holidays coming up and summer warm weather over, autumn can be a stressful time of year. There is not much bright side to stress, and health professionals will name it as one of our greatest hazards when it comes to maintaining a happy, healthy life. Stress is certainly no fun, and in many cases can be a killer. These days, it is more important than ever to maintain a balanced lifestyle, and diminish stress and its effects.
With that in mind, there are some easy ways to relax at home and relieve yourself of the day’s stresses. We’re thinking of activities like taking a cat nap, curling up under the covers with a good book, going for a jog, or practicing self-care. Also, things like aromatic candles and bath salts will go the distance in taking the edge off a long day. These practices allow the body and mind to slow down and focus.
We can’t help you with a nap, but in making things like bath salts, we are happy to go so far as to include a proven recipe for those who prefer home-made to store-bought salts. There are a few advantages to DIY self-care products like bath salts. Foremost, you know the product will be chemical free and all natural. This is important when we consider that the salts will be in contact with your skin for the length of the bath. Moreover, it will save you money and time, as you won’t have to run to the store again once the bath salts have run out. And if you plan right, and make enough, you can even give the gift of your bath salts to friends and family for the holidays.
Of course, we are also here to support you with a great solution for the best container for your bath salts. Have a look at our jar with a metal latch. It is just the right size to keep by the bath, and because it is made of transparent plastic, the natural color of your bath salts will shine through, brightening your bathroom space.

- Add ground lavender flower, as much as you like.
- Mix them thoroughly, until the results become totally blended.
