something we don’t talk enough about is the insane work and mental load of motherhood.
How the moment we have a second away from caring for our children, we are faced with fifteen tasks we should be working on in any given moment to keep our household running smoothly.
Most days, that’s the case for me. Once the baby is napping and my daughter is playing, my mind races “what should I do in this moment? Laundry, meal prep, some work?” Even in the moments that I am sitting down to relax, I am usually ordering something the kids need, like a new water bottle because they lost theirs for the 45th time or some new shoes because they’ve outgrown theirs.
Grab some chocolate, and fill up your tub…
And that’s exactly why I decided to make this nontoxic milk rose bubble bath. Because last week, I decided I was going to put my responsibilities aside, unwind, and take a day bath. I wasn’t feeling my best last week, and I was so exhausted I knew I needed a little break. So while doing my shopping, I grabbed myself some flowers and some rich and creamy cappuccino chocolate and prepared this homemade non toxic rose milk bubble bath.
The ingredients are simple. All you need are some organic rose petals, coconut milk, fractionated or melted coconut oil, unscented castile soap, and essential oils of choice. I’m using my rose and peace and calming by Young Living for the most dreamy bath ever.
Curate your own luxury
There is something so special about laying in a hot bath of rose petals in the day and treating yourself like a queen. I know these days of motherhood aren’t always luxurious, but you have the power to write that into your story and take some time for yourself and create a little room for self-care. Make it a weekly ritual. I promise the world won’t fall apart like you worry it may if you take an hour off each week. In fact, you may be surprised how much more you get done when you carve out this time for yourself.
I hope you enjoy this simple, yet luxurious recipe. If so, you simply have to let me know!
