Detox bath for kids

Detox baths are great for supporting our immune system and improving our well- being and health.

how to~
Start by filling a bath with warm water. (not to hot but not cold)
Them add in some Epson salt
Epson salt helps relax the body, relive pain while eliminating toxins. 
How much is listed below(thank you to wiki for that info)
  • For children under 60 lbs, add 1/2 cup to a standard bath.
  • For children 60 lbs to 100 lbs, add 1 cup to a standard bath.
  • For people 100 lbs and up, add 2 cups or more to a standard bath.
Next add in baking soda (half cup or little less)
Baking soda helps neutralize chemicals in water.
Needs to sit for few mins before letting kids get in.~~~~~~

Add in some essential oil. (only few drops)
We normally use lavender cause we do detox baths before bedtime but try different things like~
Eucalyptus~for sick kids
Peppermint~ for upset tummy


After everything is added let your kid soak and play.
I suggest not washing your kids hair in this bath.(Cause of the oil) and do not use any other soaps
Make sure plenty of water is handy to drink as these baths can make you thirsty.
We normally use a natural lotion after this bath, try not to use anything with lots of perfume.
We have also added in dried lavender, it was a nice touch.

Valentines day sensory bin for all ages!

Sensory bins are something you can really make for any age and to fit into any budget. Mine was made for my own kids (ages 6&7) and made from items bought at my local dollar store. A sensory bin is a bin that engages some if not all of the 5 senses. Mine did not include scent or taste but was followed up by Valentines day candy as a treat. Now that my kids are no longer toddlers but still love these bins I try to include things I can use later on for different crafts or decorating. So for this bin I added heart shaped buckets, shredded paper, stickers, necklaces, Valentines day clothes pins, and a heart shaped bell door hanger. Recently I have noticed my kids enjoy adding other toys to play time and I love that. Seeing what they come up with and hearing the stories change as they grow is pretty neat to see. Anyway I hope this inspires you to try a sensory bin out with your baby/toddler/or child, and have a good rest of your morning, evening or night! Bye!
