Natural Bath Recipes

Natural Bath Recipes

A hot bath at the end of the day is not only relaxing it can actually be very healing for the body. Creating our own natural bath recipes is quick and easy to do. We can create the perfect bath depending on our mood, using natural ingredients. You will find that the majority of bath formulas that are available in stores contain toxic chemicals.

The skin is the largest organ of the body and we need to look after it. Whatever is in your bath formula is being absorbed into your skin, so why not make it something natural and that is actually good for you and your skin.

Once you get an idea of the benefits that certain ingredients bring, you can mix and match them to create your perfect bath.
