There is one thing I truly treasure (other than coffee, peeing alone, wine…..) and that is a warm bath. It is so relaxing and recharging. If you never take baths, I would highly recommend it. And to make that experience even more enjoyable, add some homemade bath salts.
If you are not a bath lover, that is OK. You can use these salts to (affiliate link) soak your feet. Soaking just your feet once a week can help draw toxins out of your body and may help you feel better!
Another option is to make this easy Citrus bath salt as a personalized gift for a birthday, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, or Christmas gift. It so simple, just take a pretty glass jar and add a (affiliate link) wooden spoon. Voila! You have a wonderful gift to give.
If you want to kick it up a notch you could add a few lotions, scrub cubes, a foot soak tub, more bath salts and scrubs. Then you will have an awesome spa gift to give.
