For All My Hard Work

A recent conversation with my sweet other.

Him: Hey how was your day?

Me: Good but I'm exhausted. I painted the rooms today and everything hurts and I need a massage.

Him: You painted? That's interesting, I thought you were waiting for Luke. What kind of painting did you do that requires a massage?

Me: I am 5 feet tall painting 9 foot ceilings. That's a lot of work.

Him: Are you sure you're that tall? You know what the old folks would tell you to do.

Me: What's that find a new honey?

Him: No. Get in a tub of hot water and Epsom salt.

LOL! SOMEBODY missed his cue to offer a massage.

I totally recommend Epsom salts. I just soaked in them on Sunday. But a massage would have been more fun.

Ways to Use Epsom Salt To Relieve Stress and Anxiety:

1. Add two cups of Epsom Salt to warm water in a standard-sized bathtub. Double the Epsom Salt for an oversized garden tub. Bathe three times weekly, soaking for at least 12 minutes. For an extra treat, add a few drops of eucalyptus oil for a refreshing scent. Breathe deeply and relax.

2. Mix 2 cups of Epsom Salt with 1/4 cup of petroleum jelly and a few drops of lavender essential oil to create an exfoliant. Use the mixture to gently scrub away dry skin patches. This works great on elbows and feet.

3. Add one cup of Epsom Salt to a tub of warm water to relieve aching feet. It instantly reduces swelling.

4. After showering, massage handfuls of Epsom Salt over wet skin to exfoliate the body. It's the same treatment many upscale spas use, without the upscale price!
