Saturday Night Soak

I know it is summer and a  million degrees outside, but I have a pinched nerve in my back and a sore knee, so a soak in the tub has been mandatory each night. AWFUL week at the shop...but I'll get to that in a minute.  I made a concoction for the tub that was unbelievably simple and natural.

Saturday Night Soak

  • 2 cups epsom salt

  • 1/4-1/2 cup sesame oil

  • several drops of lavender essential oil

I put about 1 cup of the salt in a container and began putting about half of each oil in and stirred; then filled and repeated stirring the entire batch.  It's been a wonderfully relaxing treat all week.  Which as I hinted at, wasn't too good.  Normally, my customers are just lovely people and I greet regulars like old friends.  This week ranged from just bizarre, off the wall remarks...and in some cases just rude; to yesterday where I actually had to escort someone out (first time ever!).  Maybe it's the heat but sometimes retail is just re-hell!
