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.

Passed The Test

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.

Someone asked for our recipe.  Here it is;

* 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.


  1. Jennifer where did you get your supplies. I love this idea

  2. I actually had all the supplies on hand. But the epsom salt you can get in the pharmacy section of Wal Mart, Target, or any such store. It's in the foot care isle. Sea salt is in the baking isle at any grocery store. I don't know where I got the essential oils. But I think you can get some at health food stores or maybe even check the candle isle at Michaels or Target.
