Just as it seems that the winter bugs here in Alberta have “gone away” – wham – there it goes again…cold, sore achey muscles and more….Here’s a quick fix that will help stop those pesky flu and cold bugs from even starting!!!
Relax your mind, body and soul in this treatment. Perhaps imagine that you are in a green forest, under a warm waterfall. Afterwards, curl up in bed, cozy up under the covers with a window open for fresh air and while getting some well-deserved TLC!!!
Epsom Salts contain magnesium sulfate. When absorbed through the skin, such as in a hot bath, it draws toxins from the body, sedates the nervous system, reduces swelling, relaxes muscles, and is a natural exfoliate.
Pine EO smells like the woods. The Latin name means ‘forest.’ Pine belongs to a family of evergreens. Pine oil is beneficial for respiratory ailments. In aromatherapy, pine essential oil is often used in saunas, baths and massage for its analgesic and anti-inflammatory effect on stressed muscles.
Ravensara EO has strong anti-viral properties. It helps open the respiratory tract clogged by mucus or irritated due to allergens. Ravensara is also a powerful immune booster, lymphatic decongestant and can relieve even mild asthmatic symptoms.
• Add the essential oils and salts to a warm bath. Soak in the tub 10 to 20 minutes. Fatigue and illness is Nature’s way of providing us a much-needed rest. When you are feeling under the weather, you can use this time to ‘reset’ your system and priorities. Get lots of much needed rest and relaxation to make yourself a priority. Any disease or sickness is a love letter from the body, a wake-up call to set us on the right path…
