CHAMOMILE CALMING SALT SCRUB

Welcome my Friends! I have something extra special for you today in helping you to keep calm during this very busy month.

Chamomile is a soothing, calming and nurturing scent. It is perfect for any occasion when you want to unwind and relax.

What we'll need to make this scrub is:

Glass container that seals (any size)
2 cups Epsom Salt

1 cup Course Sea Salt
2 TBSP Sweet Almond Oil
1/2 cup Oil (you can use coconut, olive, peanut)
15 drops Chamomile Blended Essential Oil

1. In a large mixing bowl combine the Epsom Salt and Sea Salt. Mix well.

2. Add in the Oils and mix well, make sure all salt is covered in oil.

3. Add the Chamomile oil and mix well.

4. Add a couple drops of food coloring to create your perfect tint of color. Mix well.

Now that we're feeling relaxed, how about a cup of tea?

Honey Chamomile Tea Latte

This isn't your ordinary cup of tea...

With winter upon us, I find myself seeking out extra moments to sip on something warm. I especially love to incorporate this into my nighttime ritual, as I am winding down after a long day and heading to the couch. While caffeine won’t do, this herbal tea latte is perfect. It’s simple mix of chamomile tea and steamed milk that’s sweetened with honey and finished off with just a bit of ground cinnamon.

 

Think of it as your own Sleepytime tea that also doubles as a nightcap and even satisfies that sweet tooth you have after dinner, thanks to the kiss of honey. It’s the coziest way to treat yourself on a cold night.

A Feel-Good Nightcap for Chilly Winter Evenings

This tea latte is such a nice way to care for yourself. Chamomile tea has a way of calming those nerves that rise up after a hectic day. Here, it’s made extra special with the addition of steamed milk — and don’t worry about needed a fancy milk frother, as you can make it warm and foamy right in a saucepan.

You can use any type of milk, dairy or non-dairy, depending on your preferences, too. Sweet, floral honey is a perfect match with chamomile and rounds out the drink. Serve it in big mugs and enjoy with your slippers on and a blanket nearby.

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 4 chamomile tea bags
  • 1 1/2 cups cold whole milk, coconut milk, or other non-dairy milk
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • Ground cinnamon, for serving

  1. Bring the water to a simmer in a small saucepan. Remove from the heat and add the tea bags. Cover and steep for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, heat the milk in another small saucepan over medium heat. Whisk constantly until warm and frothy, about 5 minutes.
  2. Discard the tea bags from the saucepan of tea, add the honey, and stir until dissolved.
  3. Divide the warm tea between 2 mugs. Divide the frothed milk between the 2 mugs, reserving a bit of the foam with a spoon if you can. Stir gently to combine. Top with the reserved foam, sprinkle with ground cinnamon, and serve immediately.

I hope these provide you with many nights of warmth, coziness and a good nights sleep!
