Living With Essential Oils: A Good Soak

Living With Essential Oils: A Good Soak ~ DIY Bath Salts and Milk Bath ~ Gift Giving Tutorial

 

I’ve got to admit, I don’t get to sneak away for a warm soak in the bath tub too often. Even when I do, Mister Sam typically comes to “check” on me and conveniently brings a book along to read {he plunks himself down on the floor of the bathroom waiting for me to finish}. But even on those occasions, I get to enjoy a soak in some homemade bath salts or a milk bath mix. We keep a variety of ones on hand, stored in mason jars. Now that I think about it, it’s really Sam who gets the most use out of these, since I tend to sneak them into his regular bath. They make great gifts though too! So join me for a little DIY bath treat mixing!

A Lot of Love in a Little Box: Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child ~ How to Pack a Shoe Box ~ By Bubblegum Sass

Each year we pack up several shoe boxes to donate to Operation Christmas Child.

Now as a mother, these shoe boxes have come to mean a whole lot more. They are HOPE. Hope for a child, for his siblings, for his friends, and community. One shoe box isn’t just Christmas gifts for a single child, for a single year. It is LOVE in box that has the potential to spread from one child, to a whole community.
