Recently I had a wonderful nanny weekend with our three youngest grandchildren. Every night was story time and then I was to give them some magnesium in water I loved this idea our daughter had introduced – a nightly ritual in their home.
Most nights I personally roll on magnesium on the backs of my knees and the base of my spine it will not only help your health but give you a good night’s sleep.
Magnesium has so many wonderful benefits. This is something my husband and I have done for years, we also take it orally as well as rolling it onto the skin directly, and I would encourage everyone to start their own nightly Magnesium ritual. For best oral results I recommend sourcing powdered magnesium for quicker digestion and better utilisation throughout your body.
Something else I truly love to do is add Magnesium to my bath water. Commonly called Epsom Salt, Magnesium Sulfate gives you a combination of Magnesium and Sulfate. These two minerals work together in a process called reverse osmosis to remove toxins from the body and build key protein molecules in your tissues and joints.
The skin is a highly porous membrane, and an Epsom Salt bath gives you a double health benefit – first drawing out the toxins, and then helping the skin absorb the Magnesium and Sulfate. Sulfates are necessary for healthy skin, brain, joints and nerve tissue and help activate the pancreas by triggering the release of digestive enzymes. Plus, there are mood-elevating benefits of an Epsom Salt bath. Bathing in Epsom salt is known to be an excellent de-stressing tool, it works to level out excess adrenalin and helps to produce calming serotonin.
How To Take an Epsom Salt Bath.
Experts advise that you need about 40 minutes to get the true benefits from an Epsom Salt bath. Run a warm bath, and try to use water that is filtered (non-filtered water is full of fluoride, dioxins, and heavy metals that can counteract the detoxifying benefits of Epsom Salt).
The first 20 minutes are for pulling out the toxins, and the second 20 minutes are to let the Magnesium and Sulfate soak into your skin. Light some candles going and make the most of this time for you. Enjoy!!
Over the next few months I will be including magnesium in DAYTIME and STEMULATE.
But at present enjoy having it in our Fortifying Neck Emulsion!!
Try it for yourself – the benefits are wonderful!
