Cleopatra would envy this!

It is written that Cleopatra wore kajal coal to define her eyes. Used all kinds of oils perfumed potions and loved to bathe in milk!

I LOVE to do the above too. I discovered it is even more fun to embelish your bath with other additions for the kitchen.

I recently enjoyed a warm not steamy hot bath with water and a half gallon of real milk. I simply added the inside of a fresh vanilla bean pod. Vanilla beans aren’t cheap but they are worth the treat in a drink,in a dessert and in a BATH!

I have shared this simple D.I.Y. bath with my clients and they loved it. It is not sold on a store shelf which makes it even more fun to make. I so hope you try this special bath one day soon….and bathe your pandemic cares away!

Oh what a sexy aromatic elixir!

Comforting!

It’s been quite a week. And I find my clients and I are stressed. Perhaps you are too! Life is tough right now.
So, I have recommended they explore a few flowery herbs to keep calm and comforted that I use. I hope you enjoy and find comfort in them too.
I use fresh lavender. I use the buds to make sachets and tuck them in my pillow case. So de-stressing! The aroma is addictive.I also love to sprinkle it on fresh baked sugar cookies just before they are done. So pretty.

The relaxing beauty of chamomile. Another gem is chamomile. I love it as a tea 🍵 with a dash of honey or agave nectar. Very relaxing. I also find it wonderful as a tea bag compress on the eyes to relax and to help those puffy eyes. Simply enjoy a cup of the tea and save the used tea bag. Apply it to your eye area once it has cooled do my use it hot from tea cup. Chill out for ten minutes.

Next up are rose 🌹 petals I love to pull them off the stem and make rose potpourri by drying the petals. I find this very relaxing and a creative time. And after it’s dried out I sprinkle them with a few dashes of rose essential oil. Place in a small bowl or sweet basket. So lovely and a relaxing light scent at your bedroom nightstand.
