daily musings of a vintage addict * I am totally obsessed with all things vintage * trying to keep up with my past...and sometimes ordinary everyday life

My Photo
Location: Katoomba, NSW, Australia

here I am in a little cottage that evokes the energies of my ancestral lands - a cottage on the moors of Cornwall, or on the cliff tops of Ireland or Scotland. It has a hearth. I am a hedge witch {of sorts}. I wear upcycled clothes, patchouli oil and Redback boots. I am a gypsy; an eccentric and a mystic [I often live with a foot in two worlds]. I serve my guests, tea from an old silver teapot. I love Vervain, yarrow, chamomile & mint. Star watcher and Moon gazer. story cloth weaver. keeper of family dreams and wishes. good friend and creator of life. herbal tea drinker and potion maker.

Plan ahead and dream of all the beautiful things that life has to offer

pampering ones*self at Christmas time

time to de-stress and pamper yourself !!!
take 2 cups of sea salt and 1 cup of epsom salts and tip in a vintage glass mixing bowl * mix in 3 drops each of lavender * sandalwood & rose oils. mix well ~ stir in one handful of dried rose petals & place in an old glass jar with lid.
to use * just add a handful to a warm bath
so tonight - first of all give yourself a good old dry brush exfolitation - starting at your feet, gently brush upwards with a loofah * using quick strokes up towards the heart. Then jump in a shower, give yourself a quick wash using a favourite cake of soap or body wash.
then :
* light some perfumed tea light candles * turn the lights down low * step into the bath and relax.....
oh and don't forget to tell the family this is YOUR time.
Enjoy it !!

I am pausing in my last minute knitting, crocheting, baking to print some vintage tags for gifts to be delivered first thing in the morning and thinking how absolutely lovely those bath salts sound.

Merry Christmas!
