Self Care…a phrase that’s heard often these days…but how do you get started?
Sometimes it may seem overwhelming and you find yourself unsure where or how to begin & then you shut down and do nothing. I’ve found it easier to start with a ritual a bit more tangible like a bath.
One of my preferred baths to take is one with epsom salts. There are countless benefits to taking a soak with epsom salts, it can help relieve minor aches and pains and reduce inflammation but my favorite benefit is that it can stimulate and help your body detox.
Here’s the recipe, I like to use:
-3 cups of epsom salt (start with one-two if it’s your first time)
-I prefer to fill my tub with hot water to aid in the detox process
-I love getting creative with my essential oils and add 15-20 drops of my favorite blends
-My go to essential oils: 4 drops of peppermint, 4 drops of lavender, 4 drops of eucalyptus, & 2 drops of rosemary
I set a timer and soak for at least 30 mins, no need to shower afterwards but I like to rinse off with water to cool down and dry off.
I would suggest taking a bath at night since it does help you sleep, if definitely help me fall asleep a little bit faster. Falling asleep has been one of my biggest obstacles, and even though every night isn’t perfect I see a difference when I take a bath.
Make sure you purchase a high quality epsom salt from a reputable company. Krista and I EPSOAK Naturals Collection Pure Epsom Salt, and think its an incredible quality at an incredible price. You can grab your own from Amazon, just tap here to order.
Hope this helps you friend. Have a beautiful day.
