Recipe: The Hormone Balancer


Following my feature in this week’s Daily Mail (now available online), it seems that a lot of you are keen to try my Hormone Balancer recipe – and no surprise, as it uses just three ingredients and your favourite essential oil for a feeling of Zen. It’s just one of a raft of exciting and enticing recipes for power baths using oils and scrubs in my book, Bathe, out on 18 September.

The Hormone Balancer

The many vitamins, minerals and nutrients in the salts and seaweed in this recipe relieve stress, encourage the body to expel toxins and help to balance hormones.

For an added sensory boost (and to help distract from the pungent sea smell), add 7-10 drops of one of the following essential oils: juniper berry, lavender, sandalwood or patchouli.

60g/1/4 cup Epsom salts
60g/1/4 cup Dead Sea salt
120g/1/2 cup seaweed powder

Combine the salts and seaweed powder in a container, add essential oils (if using) then stir into a hot bath. Soak for 20-30 minutes.
