{DIY} Bath Salt Soak

How was everyone’s weekend and Monday?! My weekend was fabulous (why do they go SO damn fast?!?!) and my Monday was not too great (more on that later).  The weekend was full of loads of things from friends, food, workouts, and to do lists! I was proud of myself that I managed in squeeze in two tough workouts (Step and Spinning) before eating alllll the snacks at the Super Bowl party.  Can I just say, I really enjoyed Katy Perry’s half time show.  There are so many haters out there….people, what more would you want from a half time show?! Just sayin! 
Yesterday, and lately, and I been feeling overwhelmed.  Right now, I have a lot on my plate. The weeks are just flying by, simply because there is just too much going on.  I just feel like I am being pulled in about 328 directions…ever feel that way? Well, yesterday, I had it.  I was a total grouch, didn’t quite feel like myself, left work a bit early, came home…and just tried to unwind a bit, hoping to feel better today.  THANK GOD I already had dinner in the crock pot.  I bought a bag of Canterbury Naturals soup mix from Target, Rustic Fireside Tortilla, ladies and gents…it was Delicious! I will definitely be buying more of this.  Perfect for a freezing cold day.  
To top it all off, I somehow managed to hurt my lower back, I mean OUCH! Its super sore and hurts to move. What’s my go to…a hot bath. I love taking baths.  Always have.  Probably always will.  Even as a little girl, I would ask my mom if she would light candles, make me a cup of tea, and turn on some music.  I was eight.  My mom created a  princess an awesome young lady! 🙂 
I still do this, now I sometimes have wine instead of tea, I’ve grown up a bit! I find baths so relaxing and soothing, am I the only one?!  As an added health benefit, I have created a {DIY} bath soak.  It’s so simple yet so wonderful for our bodies.  I add this all the time if I am aching after a workout, sick, tired, or even just need a boost! It is exactly what I needed after my Monday and a sore back.
Follow  the instructions below for your very own tub soak, this would make a great gift for someone!
