Today I took a much needed lavender aromatherapy shower - so soothing! On Pinterest, I saw a post for a cleansing soak; instead, I mixed the same three ingredients - baking soda, Epsom salt and lavender harvest essential oil from Aura Cacia - for my scented shower and scrub.
Aura Cacia Lavender Shower Tablets. You place a tablet on the shower floor and soak up the lovely lavender scent. They're about $7, but I purchased a box on sale for under $5. You only get three tablets in a box, but I discovered that you don't need a whole tablet for a shower and can stretch the three tablets into multiple showers.
However, from now on, I will be making homemade lavender aromatherapy for my showers whenever I need them. The most expensive part was the lavender harvest essential oil, but a small $7 bottle goes a long way (you only need a few drops/shower or bath). My shower was hot, relaxing,
and cheaper than the lavender shower tablets, not to mention the concoction
doubled as a body scrub.
