Homemade Therapeutic Bath Salts

Yesterday, I spent my Sunday afternoon/evening with my yoga teacher and dear friend,
Kitty Blincoe. I've been taking yoga classes with Kitty for a little over 2 years now. I popped into one of Kitty's yoga classes during a really difficult place in my life... And after the very first class, I experienced a sense of clarity and strength (which was something I was struggling with during that time). I quickly became addicted to how I was feeling during Her classes, and continued to participate weekly. To this day, the practices Kitty guides in class, help me maintain peace and balance. I feel so lucky to have her in my life, not only as my yogi guru - but as my good friend.

When Kitty heard the big news about me moving to Florida, She insisted we (including Minou) pop some bubbly - J Vineyards, Sparkling Brut Rosé to be precise :) 



Kitty also surprised me, by bringing along her collection of Young Living Essential Oils... To make Therapeutic Bath Salts! (I was really excited)

After sipping on our champagne, girl talk, back bends, snake arms and tarot card reading; we continued our hocus pocus party by concocting magical bath salt potions. (That's what happens when a yogi and belly dancer hang out.)




I smelled each and every essential oil, and used my favorite ones for my batch. We both set an intention for each of our jars, and labeled them so. Mine being a blend we named "New Beginnings", and Kitty's  "Empowered Warrior". We topped the salts with a soft bath sponge, and closed the lids sealing in our intentions. If you'd like a potion of your own, you can order one from Kitty's website!
