 The Things I Do in the Tub
This sounds dirty, but is actually extremely clean.

If you think taking a long bath is boring, that you just sit there, then you are not using your tub time wisely. The tub is a place I multi-task the most. But, the tasks I am attending to are for me, my whole being, and my sense of peace and accomplishment in the world. 

I do more than just get clean in the tub. It is the focus of my Home Spa/Beauty Salon. It is where I relax; meditate; do simple stretches; do Reiki; perform self-hypnosis; sort out problems or blockages; listen to music; drink wine and water; deep condition my hair; detox my skin and muscles; ease aches and pains; heal skin irritations and imperfections; get ready for sleep or get energized for an event; and get away from all the technical interruptions in life.

My tub is my sanctuary; where I heal my mind, body and soul. Essential Oils and other natural products provide the healing elements needed to heal my body and elevate my mood of choice.

I use Epsom Salt and sometimes green clay to aid in cleaning and detoxification. The essential oils I use depend on my mood, the time of day, and what my skin needs. Here are some of the essential oils, I tend to turn to. You'll notice that essential oils can be used for many purposes. Below are some examples of oils which Relax, Energize, Sooth Tense Muscles, Aid Meditative Practices, Ease PMS and Lessen Period Cramps. . 

I use about 1 cup Epsom Salt (and sometimes use an ounce of green clay. I add about 1/4 to 1 ounce of fixed oil, shampoo, or liquid soap to make the essential oils water soluble. This is important because if the essential oils float on top you may get an adverse skin reaction. You might not, but better to be safe.  I add 20 drops of essential oils to the fixed oil or soapy base before adding it to the salt. If you are new to essential oils, start with 10 drops or less.
