Self Care: Homemade Postpartum Bath Soak
Let's squeeze in a little bit of love for your miraculous body today, gorgeous.
Hey there Mama, (or mama’s best friend... or her partner in crime... welcome to *all*!)
Having a baby is one of the most incredible, magical, life-changing experiences someone can have. But, as any of us veterans of motherhood will attest: it can be tough, tiring, and stressful.
We often forget about ourselves. We at The Dairy Fairy like to call it a “lack of vitamin ME.”
It’s super important to carve out some time for *you,* every single day!
To assist you with this pertinent self-care, our fairies have created a bath soak recipe that will work wonders and leave you feeling calm and mellow.
You can get any of these ingredients off Amazon, from your local supermarket, or down at a nearby health store.
Ingredients for a soak full of “Vitamin-Me”
- 1 jar (mason or otherwise)
- 3 cups epsom salts
- 15-20 drops lavender essential oil
- 5 drops peppermint essential oil
- 1 tsp lavender flowers
- 1 tsp calendula herbs
- 1 tsp chamomile tea leaves (you can use this from a tea bag)
How to create the "Vitamin-Me" soak:
- Mix your ingreidents in the jar.
- Give your jar a shake while you do a little dance and infuse it with some love.
- Label with a special message to yourself - like “you are amazing!”
- Lastly, give a generous sprinkle into a tub of water at bath-time.
- Enjoy, then slip into our lacy Coco Sleep Bra (get it before it's gone!) and give yourself freedom to nap!
