SUNDAY NIGHT SELF-CARE: ✔️
Tonight, I took an Epsom salt bath for the first time tonight & it felt SO GOOD to just lay there, relax & disconnect for half an hour!
You guys know how I feel about self-care – I try to do it everyday & I strongly believe it’s a crucial component in living a healthy lifestyle, a way for you to practice self-love, know your worth & give your body a well-deserved break from all the hustle & bustle of LIFE!
My goal this week is to practice self-care for at least 30 minutes each day & I’m off to a good start!
Your body loves you. Show it some love too! ❤️
I’ve been working out a lot lately & have found tons of natural remedies to help with muscle soreness to the point where I hardly feel it anymore (tart cherry, magnesium, adding electrolytes to my water & collagen), but I had been hearing so much about how Epsom salts could also help soothe my muscles. So of course, I just had to give them a try!
Bathing in epsom salts is known to have many other health benefits as well.
WHY EPSOM SALT?
natural exfoliant & anti-inflammatory used to treat muscle aches & swelling, sore muscles, dry skin & even to fight internal health issues.
boosts magnesium levels naturally! (magnesium is crucial for many bodily functions such as muscle control, energy production & elimination of toxins).
helps reduce stress & relax the mind (magnesium deficiency has actually been shown to enhance stress reactions).
flushes out toxins due to the sulfates by providing a heavy metal detox & pulling salt & toxins out of the body’s cells, as well as cleansing the liver.
helps naturally relieve symptoms of gastrointestinal disorders.
moisturizes the body.
& FEELS LIKE AN AT-HOME SPA (the candle helps with that!).
