Sometimes even the most gentle natural soap is too much for sensitive skin. Here’s our recipe for a super gentle bathtime soak that will cleanse and soothe. This can also be used for chicken pox, poison ivy and other dermatitis.
1 Tablespoon of our Baby Body Powder
3 Pumps of our Baby Body Oil
1 Tablespoon of Ground Oats
1 Tablespoon of Chamomile Tea or 1 tea bag is perfect!
Add all to a lukewarm bath and soak your babe or your bum. If you don’t want to deal with the pieces of oats and tea, put them in an old sock and tie off the end to create a quick, reusable bath tea bag! This can also be used over the body as a cleansing washcloth.
It's been 75 years since President Roosevelt enacted the executive order which allowed the U.S. military to exclude any and all persons from an area after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Although no single racial or ethnic group was mentioned in the order, hundreds of thousands of Japanese-Americans were forced out of their homes and moved into camps.
I recently interviewed my grandfather about what life was like as a Japanese-American post World War II. I hoped to gain insight into a part of my heritage which I’ll never experience first hand but am saddened by. It's impossible not to see parallels being drawn between the recent travel ban and past U.S. anti-Asian policies. I can't help but feel anxiety for how the current administration seems to be playing to the fears of a bigoted populism and what can be done to counter it.
Not just your potato’s best friend, this fresh and woody herb promotes hair growth and stimulates blood circulation. The fragrant oils in the rosemary leaf also dissolve excess and clogging sebum in hair follicles to balance oil production without over-drying. Make your own herbal tea hair rinse with fresh rosemary or apply hair oil with the essential oil.
