The Best At-Home Bath Treatment Ever

I can tell you exactly when I had my last bath… it was in 2008.

Because that was just before I had my first of two boys and now I can’t even go to the can without the predicable shrill call of MUUUUUUUUUM!!

I swear they have built-in radars… or they’re just in cahoots with each other to drive me batshit crazy… I think I can hear them sniggering about it now.

Many of my friends will also tell you I run on a somewhat high-frequency, so laying in a bath for 20 or so minutes would ordinarily have me twitching.

You mean… like… do nothing?

Just LAY there?

For how long?

… I don’t understand the task…

In spite of my McFidgit genetics (and because I had a roaring cold and had to go to a special friends Birthday booze-up that night), I decided to test drive the MUST-TRY do-it-yourself at home bath combo that is meant to:

  • reduce stress;
  • balance your pH levels;
  • help draw out toxins;
  • reduce water retention;
  • help alleviate cold symptoms.


  • 1 cup of Epson Salts
  • 10 drops of Thursday Plantation lavender essential oil
  • 1/2 cup bicarb soda
  • Empty house or a professional kid-wrangler

After a very relaxing bath, I fit into my jeans a little easier and I didn’t snot all over everyone. I think that’s a win in anyones book. I highly recommend it and I genuinely think it did everything it promised.

To be honest I really enjoyed just laying there… and managed it for about 25 minutes before the boredom twitches settled in…

Maybe because good ole Mr Hubby kept the gremlins caged…

I’ve also mixed all these ingredients together in a little snack baggie to take away on my #BestieMoon with Bevi and my Girls Trips… you don’t even need the kiddie wrangler because they’re home with Dad…WIN!

** As an added bonus – if you pair this with the chicken-ee goodness of my chicken broth (click here to read and get recipe) – you have a killer cold zapper right there!!
