Bath Relief for Trying Times

Everything seems to be little bit “more” than usual right now, more stress, more awareness, more choices… A Mustard Bath is an ideal way to detoxify, reset and relax. 

Traditionally used to relieve sore muscles and aide in detoxification mustard baths create a warming effect on the body. Add Rosemary, Eucalyptus, or Wintergreen for a traditional soak. However, I’ve included a special oil blend specifically useful for these trying times.

Mustard Bath**

  • 1 cup powdered mustard seed
  • 2 cups Baking Soda
  • 1 cup Epsom Salt

Essential Oil Blend for integration and inspiring ease through transition, based on an Egyptian formula.

  • 10 drops Cypress
  • 5 drops Atlas Cedarwood
  • 5 drops Rosewood
  • 10 - 15 drops bergamot

Mix well into bath ingredients.  And store in a glass jar away form light or heat.  This receipe makes 4-12 baths.  

Use:  Ideally, add ¼ cup to 1 cup each bath.
