Well, I guess our bath salts work just fine. I don't really know what bath salts are supposed to do (I'm not too girly). I asked my sister in law and she said they were supposed to make your skin feel soft and should dissolve into the water leaving no grainy traces behind. So Felicity and I enjoyed a salt bath with our handmade bath salt. They DID dissolve, so no grainy traces. And I guess they DID make our skin soft. They DEFINITELY made our bath smell wonderful. So I guess we'll make some more for stocking stuffers.
* Mix 2 cups epsom salt (we used a lavender scented one) and 1 cup course sea salt.
* Stir in 3 drops food coloring
* Stir in 6 drops essential oil
* Pour into jars
To use, pour 1/3 to 1/2 cup bath salt into bath and swirl into water until dissolved.
After 5 years of being a stay-at-home mom, I found the wonder of mothering slowly starting to get crowded out by the mundane feeling. I realized our world seems to surround people with the negative, and complaining about blessings seems totally acceptable. So I decided to fight against that "normalcy" and focus only on the positive. I look back to my first year as a mom when everything was new and keeping house was fun and I aim to have that attitude again. This blog is my outlet to showcase the daily miracles that surround me in my blessed life as a stay-at-home mom so that I will never forget the wonder of it all.
