taking care of my baby

Today was day two of my 11 year old staying home because she has the flu.  Yesterday I thought she was just in need of a down day today I realized she may be home all week if I don't do something and quick.  I ran her a warm bath with sea salts and meso essential oil blend (Earth Matters Apothecary) and while she soaked I prepared a cold sheet.  When she was ready to get out of the bath I had her lay down on top of the cold sheet and the makeshift bed I had made.  I can't say she was thrilled about the ice cold sheet but within minutes she was hot which is exactly the response I was wanting from her body.  I sat with her while she relaxed in the wrap and sent her back to bed when she was ready to get out.  It helped her so much!  I love having tools like this to take care of myself and my family when they need.

 my set up.  Yoga mat on the floor, wool blanket on top covered with garbage bags (I can reuse) cover with a towel.  just before you lay down spread out the cold sheet.  Lay on it and wrap all layers around you.  Stay for at least 20 minutes.
