There’s nothing I like more than a nice, long soak in the tub after a long, hard day. (Well, I can think of a few more things, but let’s keep things clean–literally!) In our old house, we had a claw footed tub that was the perfect place to wash away the day’s cares. And that was B.K. (before kids). Today, I’m lucky if I can manage a nightly shower without falling asleep. Perhaps my association with tub time as being “quiet time” dates back to when I was little. I fondly remember that the bath was the ticket to all our childhood woes: temper tantrums (although I was told I was an angel with few bad moments), nasty head colds and, in the teen years, bad-mood busters (unfortunately, I was not immune to those). Today, I find baths to be the perfect soother for cranky kids who need a calming way to wind down after a tiring day. Because we are blessed –or is it cursed?–with extra sensitive skin, I have to be especially careful with the products I use on my girls. That’s why Organic Baby Bath Tea Bags from Nature Certified caught my eye. Made from 100-percent organic ingredients like oat flour and chamomile, they are especially kind on tender skin. One whiff of these tea bags and I was instantly transported to a calmer place. Now I can create my own spa at home, minus the clawed foot tub, of course. But you get the idea. And if you’ve got a fussy baby, a gentle bath steeped with these bags may be just the answer you’re looking for.
In a Nutshell: No matter if you’re big or small, tough days happen to us all. When it seems like the walls are closing in on you, it’s time to turn on the tub faucet, throw in a bag and breathe deeply.
