Bathing in a big, warm tub together is a wonderful, sensual way to begin a night of intimate play and lovemaking. This blend of essential oils and magnesium salts will sooth tense muscles, bring you into the present moment, and energize you for a night of passion.

Ingredients

  • 16 oz epsom salts
  • 5 drops lavender essential oil
  • 5 drops rosemary essential oil
  • 5 drops geranium or ylang-ylang essential oil

Equipment

  • Medium-sized mixing bowl
  • Measuring cup
  • Spoon
  • Funnel
  • Sealable glass container
  • Label and Pen

Procedure

  1. Pour the epsom salts into your mixing bowl.
  2. Add each of the essential oils, spreading each drop out across the top of the salts.
  3. Mix the salts until they’re well-blended and you cannot see any place where the essential oils have clumped together.
  4. Using the funnel, pour the salt blend into your jar.
  5. Seal the jar and label it.

Storage and Use

Keep this bath soak blend in a cool, dark place until you’re ready to use it. A drawer or cabinet in the bathroom will do quite nicely, particularly as a preparation for a spontaneous bath for two.

For a big soaker tub, add the whole batch to a single, hot bath when the tub is about half-way full. This blend will not stain or leave behind a residue, so it’s a perfect alternative to an intimate bubble bath.
