It's crunch time!
Everyone is rushing around and finishing up those last minute items.
We feel the stress and the need to get our to do lists finished and we need to.......so we can RELAX!
It's the end of the year and a time to rejuvenate but at the same time unwind from working so hard all year long!
Step 1, let's detox.
Diffusing alone creates a detox for everyone in our home, so go ahead and add 4 drops of stress away and 4 drops of lavender to lighten the mood and unwind at night. (Do your kids have a diffuser yet in their rooms? Make a wish list for those items you still need).
Step 2, get the toxins out in a hot bath.
Drop 5 drops of peppermint (other oils can be used also, lavender is one) in two cups of epsom salt, a cup of baking soda and swish together. Put in warm water and unwind for 30 minutes.
Why do we need to detox?
Here's 5 reasons why:
*Helps to boost magnesium levels (remember almost everyone is deficient) and build immunity
*Release the toxins (sources like processed foods, pollution, and pesticides)
*Soothes muscle and joint aches and pains
*Opens up nasal passages (sweat it out! Great for colds, flu, and illness) *Eucalyptus oil is great for this
*Relaxes you and helps you get a good night's rest
Do my children need to take a detox bath? YES, they do (especially when they're sick)
Here's 5 reasons why:
*Strengthen immune system
*Help muscles and nerves function properly
*Helps promote concentration
*To flush out toxins that have built up in their body
*To promote sleep and relaxation
*Kids need 1/4 c Epsom Salt and 1/4 c baking soda and the same amt of drops in their bath of essential oils at 20 min duration
Drink water after before falling asleep for the night. Your pores will be open so don't apply any deodorant or lotions afterwards unless its chemical and aluminum free because you don't want your body to absorb chemicals especially after this detox.
The goal is to get the toxins and chemicals out of our household one jar or bottle at a time.
I hope you do find some time to detox, relax, and unwind during this holiday season. Make it a goal to do this at least twice a month in the New Year!
Hope you're having a great week :)
