My parents decided to go down to Florida this weekend to relax and get a break. They figured that my dad’s clients shouldn’t be bothering him this weekend because of the holiday. They decided to drive down Thursday and come back Monday. I am going to stay at my grandparents’ house, and Junior is going to stay at my cousins’.
Although both my cousins and grandparents live a five minute walk away on the same property, I still love staying over at my grandparents’. They have a beautiful guest room complete with a private bathroom and spacious closet. The guest room is downstairs and there is also a living area with a big flatscreen TV and a bar with a mini fridge, sink, and “snack station”. Overall, my grandparents’ guest suite is very comfortable and nice. I should stay there more often! I believe the last time I stayed over was more than a year ago.
Anyway, I didn’t tell you one of the major reasons why I love staying over! It’s because they have a bathtub. Now, if you know me well, you‘ll know that I love baths. Like crazy love them. I would take a bath every day if I could. Why can’t I? We don’t have one. :’( When my parents built our house, they didn’t put in a SINGLE bath! I am determined that I am going to have one of those huge baths with the gold feet in MY house. But, thanks be, my grandparents have a bath! So whenever I stay over, I take a bath every night.
I was out of bath salts though, so I decided to make some. And post the recipe!
I’m making a lemon-tangerine and a peppermint. Yummy!
1 cup Epsom salts
1 T baking soda
15 drops essential oil
That’s my basic recipe. All you have to do is add different essential oils and you have many different scents! About ½- ¾ cups of this does one good bath, so I like to have at least 3 or 4 cups if I want to get 5 or 6 baths.
Here’s the peppermint…
They smell so delicious and make such a great easy gift.
