Welcome back to our luxury bath snapshot series. We're here to give you luxury result in a second using stuff you find in your pantry. Today, our recipe is also vegan and gluten free. Bonus! Let's dive in and get into a bath salt that's to die for.
Who doesn't love peppermint? It's used in mints and floss specifically because it provides a nice taste while leaving your breath feeling fresh. So you can imagine using it to take a bath makes you feel cleaner than you've ever felt before. Using it after shaving is the closest most people will get to feeling like a goddess -- as long as you didn't cut yourself shaving.
If you just want to relax, the bath salt works for that too. You'll feel fresher that you've ever felt before. You can pour it in as the water runs or use it as an impromptu scrub. If you decide to do the former, be careful not to use it on your intimates. Nothing should ever really do down there except water. It is also not a replacement for soap.
You'll need 1/2 a cup of baking soda, 1/2 sea salt and 1 cup of Epsom salt. This will add something that is grainy enough to fight the dead skin clinging to your body, while still being gentle enough to ward off irritation. Epsom salt also relaxes the muscles in the body, helping you wind down after a long day. It is commonly used by hardworking athletes trying to avoid painful cramps.
Mix in 1 cup of green or light blue food coloring for aesthetic reasons. Minty!
Now for something sweet. Mix in 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract for a wonderful smell.
Don't forget the most important part. In order to get that fresh, minty feeling of being rejuvenated, add 14 drops of peppermint essential oil!
