Citrus....... Bliss?


The other day, I was tired.  Stressed.  Tired.  Cranky.  Tired.  In a not fabulous mood.  Tired.  You get the picture.  The Natives were off at school and with a good book in hand, I thought I would take me a nice restorative peaceful bath.  I just luuuuv baths.  Especially in the fall and winter when it is cold outside!

I started the bath water and added some sea salt from the Dead Sea that The Scout Master's parents had brought us back from Israel.  I was going all out on the pampering!!  And then..... I had this brilliant thought.........  I love Citrus Bliss Essential Oil!!  It always makes me happy!  I luuuuv the smell.  It's in my bath bar and hand lotion, why not pour a bunch into my bath water!  Putting calming Essential Oils into one's bath water is a common thing!  Note:  I said calming..........

I dumped several drops in my bath water because we all know if one drop is good then 50 must be better and settled into the tub with my book.  Down I went into the water.  Ahhhh it felt good.  I started to read and imagined I'd be in the tub for quite some time.  I started to squirm.

Why was my back feeling a bit hotish?  Ignoring the discomfort I shifted myself a bit and settled back in turning the page of my book as I read on fascinated in the biography I was reading.  Soon, the hotish began to get a little more intense and now other parts of my submerged body were starting to feel a bit like little fire ants were pinching me.  You'd have thought I was reading a hot romance novel by how on fire my body was starting to feel!

I jumped out of the tub hooting and hollering chucking my book and looked in the mirror.  Bright red.  Oh my goodness!!  I was on FIRE!  I grabbed some lotion and started rubbing myself all over because we all know that some Essential Oils tend to be 'hot' and so we use them with a carrier oil......... uh huh........  we don't submerge ourselves in them..................  WHAT WAS I THINKING????

Dancing around my bathroom panting and whistling.........  I will be as discreet as possible in this story so when I tell you that when you are in the tub, there are parts of your body, your yaywhoos and yawhoos!!! Uh huh!  You know what I'm talking about!  HELLOOOOO!   I looked like I was dancing on hot coals running around my bedroom at this point fanning myself!  Can I just say that I was very grateful all Natives were at school???

After a few minutes of screeching and dancing myself into exhaustion I fell on my bedroom floor laughing with tears running down my face.  I never cease to amaze myself at my stupidity.  One thing was for certain.  I was wide awake!!!
