Jackie’s Miracle Witchy Bath for Ouchy Winter Skin

clumsygrace.com-4

Hey there, friend!

Do you struggle with ouchy, dry winter skin?

If you live in the same part of the world I do, the answer is usually a resounding, “Heck, yeah”.

As some of you may have heard, my  baby son was very sick a few weeks ago with croup.

I was discussing this with my friend, Jackie, who’s eldest daughter had croup when she was a baby also.

We were also discussing eczema, which sometimes goes along with asthma diagnoses and just plain itchy, ouchy winter skin.

Jackie has a miracle bath potion that worked wonders for her kids, and when I asked if I could share her recipe with all of you, she said:

Absolutely, share away. Happy to help whoever it can.

Because that’s just the kinda chick she is!


 

Jackie’s miracle witchy bath for ouchy skin:
(This is for a full or half full tub shrink portions for smaller amounts of water)

– 1 cup Epsom salt

***not the scented ones.  just plain mineral salt. The other ones cause more havoc***

– 1/4 – 1/2 cup pure sea salt

***less if skin is open as it will sting too much***

– 1/2 capful of pure vanilla

– 10-15 drops of whatever essential oil your body tells you

(S loves this ritual she sits and smells them all and makes her own smell concoctions)

*** remember mint will make bath feel cold ***

(Erin: don’t put cinnamon oil in your bath. Trust.)

Soak for 20-30 minutes minimum

***we read books or sometimes watch IPad shows to allow for relaxing full soak time without the “Can I get out yet whines” ***

PS add some eucalyptus or burgamont for those lung challenging days


winter skin fix!
This ritual bath salt was gifted to me by one of my dear students xo

This concoction was mightily helpful on my young boy’s dry skin. I found it especially helpful to rub some coconut oil on the dry patches afterwards.

Jackie and I both hope this miracle bath will be soothing for your winter skin, and for the skin of your bambinos. 

As Jackie said in her directions, this can become a really lovely nightly ritual and help teach our kids about the importance of self-care.

With love,

Er xo
