No witch should be without Epson salts in her bathroom. Nothing beats a nice long soak in candle light bubble bath. Our favorite is Dr. Teal's Chamomile. Not only does it smell great, bur the chamomile adds to the relaxation experience. Chamomile has been used as a traditional medicine for thousands of years to calm anxiety and settle stomachs. Carmella also used to make a chamomile tea that always soothed me nervous tummy.
Dr. Teal's Lavender is also a good choice, Lavender has a scent that’s a wonderful blend of fresh, floral, clean, and calm. We have a lavender plant under the bedroom window. In magick lavender is known as the herb of attraction. Got a hot date? prepare for it with a soak in lavender infused Espon salts.
If you prefer your bath time in the morning, you can't go wrong with Dr. Teal's Peppermint. It is an invigorating scent that will perk you up and get you on your way.Peppermint is used to attract abundance when used in magick.
How does this Epson salt stuff work?
Epsom salts dissolved in warm water are easily absorbed through the skin where they immediately go to work inside our bodies. The magnesium ions break apart from Epsom salt molecules and begin to relieve stress by promoting the production of serotonin and reducing the effects of adrenaline. Magnesium also plays a critical role in the production of energy in cells, helping us to feel invigorated without causing feelings of restlessness or anxiety.
Epson salts are wonderful for muscle soreness and sprains and strains. Take a good soak after doing yard work and you won't be stiff or sore the next day.
Drink too much? Who doesn't on occasion? I recommend a Bloody Mary and a grilled cheese sandwich followed by a soak in Dr. Teal's Eucalyptus while drinking lots and lots of water. Follow this with a nap and you'll awaken fit as a fiddle.
The foaming bubble baths are also a nice edition to your Epson salt soaks. That would also make a great gift for Mother's Day.
There are so many other uses for Epson salt. It really is good for just about anything that ails you.
