#SaturdaySoaks: Citrus Calm

General, Mind, Skin Care


Welcome to #SaturdaySoaks, a refreshing mini series where I share my homemade recipes for tub-side self-care and aroma therapy. 

The emphasis on self-care is on the rise and it’s forced me to indulge in things I once thought were cheesy and unpractical. I used to think that some things were just for people who lived a certain lifestyle; a lifestyle unlike mine. Now I find myself  making time to rise with the sun and doing yoga, eating better and scheduling meditation after work to clear my head. 

Life has really taken a turn now that post-grad life is settling in. I’m now left trying to replace time I spent in school with time enjoying life and pursuing my career. In an effort to remain disciplined, I sit back, relax and map out my week each Saturday in luxurious bath concoctions to soak away stress & negativity. 

I mean look at how pretty it is! Who wouldn’t want to jump in? You can find the recipe to this beautiful body soup down below.
