Mother’s Day is right around the corner! Homemade gifts have always been a favorite of mine to give and to receive on this special holiday. I love to soak in the bath and “get away” from the hectic life of raising kids. It’s awesome to get those minutes to pamper yourself and leave your skin feeling great.
These Oatmeal Eucalyptus Bath Salts will both nourish and soothe the skin and would make the perfect gift this Mother’s Day. Eucalyptus has many benefits such as being an anti-inflammatory, decongestant, antibacterial and a stimulant. Oatmeal will help soothe your skin in about 20 minutes of soaking. It will both cleanse and moisturize the skin all at once.
Keep it homemade this Mother’s Day and surprise mom with this Oatmeal Eucalyptus Bath Salt that she will love and remember you every time that she does.
