Relax, Unwind & Soothe

Who doesn’t enjoy a nice warm bath? I bet everyone would agree it’s one of the most relaxing things you can do. But most of you probably haven’t taken a bath in months, if not years. I suggest you change that and here is a great excuse to do so. The therapeutic bath. Whatever ails you, whether physical or mental, you can support your body through epsom salts and oils.

Epsom salts can be found in your local drugstore and only cost a few bucks. When it is dissolved into water it breaks down into magnesium sulfate easily absorbed through your skin. The most common reason people use epsom salts are to relieve soreness of muscles and stiff joints but there are so many benefits of magnesium for your body. Some benefits include bone health, heart health, easing PMS symptoms and migraine head aches, along with reducing anxiety.

Couple these salts with essential oils and you have yourself a powerful bath bomb.

In order for oils to dissolve into the water, you must first mix them with the epsom salts. Otherwise the oils will just float at the top of the water and you won’t receive the maximum benefits.

First fill a measuring cup with 1 cup of epsom salts. then drop 15 drops of your oil(s) of choice into the salts. Mix up and let it absorb. Sprinkle into your warm bath and enjoy.

*I only put about 6-8 drops of oil in the salts for kids

Sticky Issues

Every single one of us has come to a point in life where we wanted something sticky to come off of your furniture/walls/clothes/hair etc, and it just will not obey. If you have kids you probably face this on a weekly, if not daily, basis.

i.e. Not so silly putty

Lemon oil is the perfect tool to have in your arsenal in these situations. This oil is cold pressed from the rinds of lemons and is super concentrated in a power packed little bottle of gold.

Side tip: Add a couple drops of lemon to your Thieves Household Cleaner spray and amp up that cleaning power while giving it an extra citrus smell!

If you find yourself in a sticky situation grab the lemon oil, drop it on the desired area and scrub off the sticker or work out the gum in your hair. You will find it crazy easy.

In my example, I accidentally labeled my son’s school water bottle with the wrong type of label.

img_83621.jpgNo amount of finger nail scraping was going to work so I busted out the lemon oil.

Take a look below:

 

Word on the street is that lemon oil will also remove permanent marker from unwanted places like the hallway wall or your brand new shoes … because toddlers.

Good News! Lemon oil is in the Starter Kit!

There are 99 ways to use lemon oil, and this is just 1. More on that to come I am sure.
