Valentine’s Day Gift Idea: Epsom Salt
Posted on Feb 7, 2020
February is here, and you know what that means? Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! Whether you’re brainstorming the perfect gift, or planning to spend the occasion relaxing on your own, here are a few healthy ways to show that special someone (and yes, that someone can be you!) your whole hearted love and affection.
This Valentine’s switch from sweet to salty…Epsom Salt that is! Even on days of celebration, our bodies can feel tense and anxious. An Epsom salt bath is a fantastic way to unwind and reduce stress, but what’s more, the Magnesium in Epsom salt helps to:
-ease muscle tightness and aches
-reduce stiffness and soreness in joints
-draw out harmful toxins from the body
-calm the nerves, and promote a more restful sleep.
PLUS! Baths (or foot baths if we’re in a drought) are another way to hydrate (and after an especially dry winter, just drinking water may not be enough to replenish your body). And in the spirit of Valentine’s, try pairing Epsom salts with your favorite scent!
From a Chinese medicine perspective, Rose scent soothes the nervous system and helps trigger the brain into relaxation mode. Whether floral, ctirus, or earthy, etc. Find what scent makes you happy? Brings you comfort? And add a few drops of your favorite essential oil to the tub for an uplifting, emotional boost!
