There are times in our lives that we long for a spa day and some relaxation. Going to the spa can be expensive though! So, why not skip the spa and diy the day at home. Homemade Bath Bombs, Salts, and Scrubs: 300 Natural Recipes for Luxurious Soaks by Kate Bello is here to the rescue!
Regardless if you prefer a calming bath soak or an acne bath, this book will help.

Kate opens up the book by walking the reader through the base supplies needed for each the recipes included. Most of the supplies consists of measuring utensils and items for storage. The other beginning chapters talk about the benefits of bath salts and essential oils. The book offers a great resource and does list places to buy the ingredients as well. For some of the recipes I tried, I found the oils at an organic food store, such as Hy-Vee, Whole Foods, or Trader Joe’s.

Every chapter following is broken down into categories of the bombs, salts, and scrubs. Chapters range from common recipes, chakras, ailments, and even astrology. The astrology chapter had to be my favorite! It doesn’t get deep into astrology, but it does highlight how you can balance yourself internally based on your astrology sign. My sign is Leo, that section focused on cooling and relaxation. At the end of the day it felt pretty great!

Kate has been blogging for several years and her work has been featured in multiple magazines including: Artful Blogging. Her blog focuses on diy beauty and easy healthy recipes. After trying out some of these soaks and scrubs, I definitely noticed a difference. I was able to create relaxing spa like environment in my own home.
