Baked Apple Bath Fizzies

 Baked Apple Bath Fizzies

I am so excited to let you in on a big surprise…

I have been slowly replacing our bath and body products with natural alternatives ever since the nesting instinct kicked in when I was a mother to be. Scouring the shelves of Barnes and Noble for books on the topic and I came across a new magazine by Stampington and Company who published an article about Life-n-Reflection a few years ago in Artful Blogging. This new magazine with chockful of stunning photography, adorable packaging, and homemade beauty recipes galore!

It was exactly what I needed to begin creating bath products that not only worked but loved my skin and made me feel safe inside and out.

I’ll admit the first thing I made was a bubble bath followed by sugar scrubs. Looking back I see that those were not necessities, tell that to your pregnant self. I obviously thought I needed some pampering. My journey into natural bath and body continued as I began the more challenging tasks of creating face wash, toner, eczema cream and the like.

Published in Willow and Sage Magazine


Fast forward a few years to today and I am thrilled to announce that I have three natural bath and body articles published in the current spring issue of Willow and Sage Magazine!!! The recipe I share with your today is one of the published articles.

Pour your next bath with soothing DIY Baked Apple Bath Fizzies.

Soak in nutrient-rich oatmeal; regularly used in dermatology treatment for eczema and dry skin. Oatmeal helps hydrate and soothe rough dry skin and eczema irritation all while evening skin tone and texture. Let the bath fizzies bubble with mineral-rich Epsom salt and sweet almond oil for extra soft skin.
