Sad, but true: Have you ever felt like the only time you have to yourself is when you’re in the bathroom? It can easily happen if school, work, or family has got you feeling stressed. Been there, done that. The best cure I’ve found for my rundown body (and mind) is taking some time just for me—and that usually includes a nice, long bath.
So, the next time your body is feeling overwhelmed or neglected, give yourself 30 minutes and run a warm bath filled with these detoxifying bath salts to help rejuvenate your body and mind.
The key ingredient in this mixture is Epsom salts. They are known to have many health benefits, and they ease various aches and pains. Also, the magnesium in the compound helps to release serotonin in the body, which leaves you feeling calm and relaxed. Be sure to purchase a cruelty-free baking soda as well as sea salt and an essential oil in your favorite scent.
