Sinus Headache Bath Salts

Sinus Headache Bath Salts
2-3 cups Epsom salts (or salts of your choice)
1/3 cup peppermint
1/3 cup spearmint
40 drops peppermint eo
20 drops eucalyptus eo
Ground the mints in mortar and pestle, then sifted them through a mesh kitchen strainer, and added them to the salts. If you still need to clear out your sinuses, get a half cup of pepper/spearmint, put it in a bowl, and toss in a cup or so hot water. Let it sit covered for a bit and then carefully start breathing the steam.
Use about 1/4 - 1/3 cup of this mixture per bath. A decent amount of essential oils would probably be 4 drops peppermint, 2 drops eucalyptus per bath. Some people may be more sensitive to the peppermint, so be sure they don't have an adverse reaction before using these salts.
