I am trying to minimize the cold that I have just gotten. According to the internet, I can't, but I am determined to feel better in order to take my kiddos to a Halloween Party tonight! (In case you didn't know, Halloween is my favorite holiday!!!)
This is a simple recipe for making a bath salt. Mine is Eucalyptus, Orange, Lavender, and Peppermint. The Eucalyptus and the peppermint will help me breathe a little better, and hey, who doesn't feel just a bit better after a hot bath?
I also wanted to add ground oatmeal, which makes your skin really soft, but the baby was sleeping and the coffee grinder would have woken her up. (Put oatmeal in a coffee grinder until it is powder. Voila!) You can also use JUST the oatmeal mix for kids who have eczema. I used to put this in Tate's bath with a little lavender oil. It makes a mess in the tub, but it really does help his skin.
