Lavender Milk Bath is the perfect way to pamper those you love, or who love your children. I can only imagine how exhausted teachers are by May!

But let’s be honest, it’s all about relaxation. Everyone needs a little time to themselves! Sneaking away for a quiet bath is a rare luxury in this season of my life, but a gift I’m giving to myself this week as well!
