By popular request I have an awesome Wildwood SoapWorks review and giveaway for you this week. Many of you have expressed interest in their organic bath teas, so read on and find out what I think of it (love it!) and then you’ll have a chance to win a tin of your own!
How does bedtime go at your house? Those of you with little kids, maybe you can relate to this: You tell the kids it’s time to get ready for bed, get your jammies on, let’s brush the teeth, etc. etc. And suddenly it’s time to go totally WILD! Laughing, screaming, running, hiding, anything but calming down and getting ready for bed. My husband’s got a role in this chaos somewhere, but mostly it’s just the effect of the day ending and the kids wanting to prolong it (as long as humanly possible). Bath time is often a good way to calm them down before bed. Yes, sometimes it’s a splashfest, but other times it gets the ball rolling in the right direction.
Wildwood SoapWorks has the perfect little extra boost in the bath to relax the kids – their Full Moon Bath Tea. It’s a combination or organic herbs and therapeutic grade essential oils and it smells…divine. It smells kind of herbally, kind of woodsy, kind of florally. Are these words? Words fail me to describe the smell. It’s just amazing. You’ll wear your sniffer out breathing in the smell long before you get it in the bath.
As if the bath tea itself weren’t special enough, it comes with the cutest little scoop and a real reusable tea bag for your to brew your bath with. So here’s what you do: Bring a pot of 2-3 gallons of water to a boil, fill your tea bag about half full with tea, tie it up, and boil it in the water for 10 minutes. Then turn the heat off and let it steep for 10 more minutes. Pour the whole thing into your already-full bath tub, bag and all. Of course you need to time your prep since it will take a little while for the water to boil and the tea to steep, but just plan ahead and it’s no trouble. And if you’re putting this in the kids’ bath, fill it with cooler water so the temperature evens out when you add the hot tea.
The smell is so relaxing, it’s perfect for the kids’ baths, and if you have no intention of accomplishing another thing all night long, it’s perfect for a bath for you, too. I sat in that tub and read my book for more than an hour. The water was getting cold by the time I got out but boy, what a treat. The tea turns a beautiful yellow color, like saffron, and the bath water looks so cool. Obviously I love the smell, but the other thing I love about it is that you get to add something special to your bath without it being a sudsy, greasy product that leaves your skin dry and your bathtub an oil slick. My skin wasn’t dry at all afterwards, despite soaking in a pretty darn hot bath for an hour, and there was no trace of anything in the tub after I drained it. I think next time I’d try to make it a little stronger by maybe adding a little more tea to the tea bag and steeping it a little longer.
You want a way to calm those kids down? Or how about a way for you to relax at the end of the day? What a silly question. 😆 We all want that, don’t we? I really love the Full Moon bath tea and think many of you will, too.
