There’s nothing quite so relaxing at the end of a long day as a warm, relaxing bath. There’s something about a bath that has the potential to take all the stress away. My mom takes a bath every evening as a part of her bed time routine because it helps her disengage from the mentality of work and helps improve her quality of sleep. Baths can also be detoxifying and can help clear skin rashes and hives. But for those who are just looking for a nice, relaxing, healthy bath soak, these DIY oatmeal lavender bath teas sound heavenly.
Have you ever made your own bath teas? Would you ever try it?
“Most days, by the time bedtime has arrived I’m exhausted and more than ready for the day to be over. One of the best ways to end one of those days is to use these simple DIY Oatmeal Lavender Bath Teas.
Being a mom is exhausting (even if your kids are perfect angels). Let’s be honest, life is exhausting – kids or not. Trying to balance being the best mom and wife we can while living on a limited budget of money and time isn’t easy.
As homemakers, our lists are endless. There’s always cooking to be done, laundry that needs to be washed, kids that need attending to, nights that include lots of waking. It’s easy to be in survival mode.
Taking a few (needed) minutes at the end of the day to de-stress and relax can do a lot for our emotions. Stress and “to do” lists can disappear for just a little while as I sit back and relax, letting the DIY Oatmeal Lavender Bath Teas do the work.
Why These Ingredients?
The lavender will help ease your stress and worries and relax your muscles, hopefully making it easier for you to sleep as well.
The oatmeal will help soften and moisturize your skin.
Relaxation, stress release, and better sleep are all benefits of Epsom salts.
Coconut oil helps with moisturizing.
I don’t think a bath can get much better than that. Okay, well maybe adding some dark chocolate (or fudge) and a good book would improve upon it, but other than that it sounds about perfect!
