Healing Bath Salts – For Kids


Occasionally, when the kids aren’t feeling well, I put some healing bath salts into their bath. I found that it speeds up recovery, makes them feel better and helps them sleep. Here is my favorite recipe:

1/4 Cup Pure Pink Himalayan Sea Salt
1/2 Cup Pure Epsom Salt
1/2 Tablespoon Sunflower Oil*
10 Drops Pure Lavender Essential Oil

Mix together in a bowl.

*Add more or less sunflower oil to desired consistency. I like mine pretty dry, that way the tub does not get too slippery for the kids. You can also use grape-seed oil, almond oil or olive oil, depending on your preference.

After you combine all the ingredients, pour into a sealable container, preferably plastic for safety.

Add about 1 tablespoon of bath salt mixture to the bathtub. I do not recommend for children under the age of 1 year. Essential oils can be too strong for infants.

I hope you enjoy this mixture as much as my children and I do!

Easy DIY Eye Makeup Remover

It seems unreasonable that there would be chemicals in eye makeup remover, but many of these products have unnecessary ingredients. Thankfully, eye makeup remover is extremely easy to make yourself. I LOVE wearing eye makeup, so finding a natural remover, that I felt good about, was really important.  I have tried many different recipes and this is the one I loved the most.

I have personally found that using almond oil to remove eye makeup every evening, has helped my lashes grow. Additionally, it is very moisturizing for my eyes which helps eliminate fine lines. Both great things! Give it a try and let me know what you think.


75%  pure almond oil
25%  pure witch hazel

Mix together pure almond oil and pure witch hazel in a bottle with a seal-able cap. I prefer a little bottle with a pump, which I apply to a cotton ball. I gently rub the cotton ball back and forth to remove my eye makeup. Give the mixture a gentle shake before each use.

If you need an even easier DIY recipe, you can also buy a pure jojoba oil and use it as an eye makeup remover.  Just apply jojoba oil directly to a cotton ball and gently remove eye makeup.

My eyes feel so moisturized after I use the above recipe and I know there are no chemicals in it!
