Magnesium to the Rescue

Feeling stressed, anxious and fatigued? One of the easiest and inexpensive self-care treatments available is an Epsom salt foot soak or body bath. Epsom salt, which is the mineral magnesium sulfate, is a natural sedative for the nervous system. When absorbed through the skin, it will draw out toxins, reduce swelling, and relax muscles. Just add 1/2 C Epsom salt plus 2 TBSP baking soda (to increase detoxification) to a large tub of warm water (not hot) and soak for 30 – 45 minutes or add 2 cups Epsom and 1/2 cup baking soda to a warm bath. Enjoy!
