Today I’m excited to share three of my favorite DIY baths with you, in partnership with Wamsutta Ultra Soft Micro Cotton Bath Towels. These bath linens are luxurious but also a greener, safer choice. They’re produced in an eco-friendly facility using green energy which harnesses the power of the sun and the wind. They’re also Class A certified under OEKO-TEX 100, meaning they’re safe for baby’s skin too.
Pretty cool right? Selfishly I love them because the towels are SO soft – and stay that way even after many washes. They’re actually constructed to “bloom” in the wash so they get softer and fluffier – NOT hard and scratchy. The colors (all fifty of them!) last longer, too.
As an avid lover of baths (I take at least 3 or 4 baths a week), soft towels are a must for afterward! I like a big fluffy towel as oftentimes I get out of the bath, into a towel, and find myself reading for a while in bed. (That is my favorite secret weekend behavior. Yoga, a bath, and then getting back into bed in my towel!!!!) I’ve also been trying to do more DIY baths as the store bought ones can get a little pricy.
Let’s get into the baths, shall we!?
The Detox Bath
(This DIY bath was created by Sonya Dakar; Gwyneth Paltrow is a fan – or at least she was until she created her own bath soaks!)
- One cup dead sea salts
- One cup baking soda
- 12 drops lavender or neroli essential oil
- A few pinches of fresh or dried ginger.
The Sore Muscles Soak
- 1/2 cup sea salt
- 1/2 cup baking powder (be sure it’s aluminum-free!)
- 1/4 cup Epsom Salts
- 1/4 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
- 12 drops Eucalyptus oil (you can use something else but I looove Eucalyptus after the gym.
Soak in the tub for 20 minutes, in the hottest water you can stand.
The Relaxing One.
- One Cup Epsom Salts
- 3 Chamomile Tea Bags
- 12 drops lavender essential oil
Fill the tub with warm water and add everything. Let the tea bags steep for 5 minutes or so, discard, and soak for twenty minutes!
