Epsom salts are rich in magnesium and sulphate – both very important minerals for the healthy functioning of the body. They have been used for centuries to relax muscles, loosen stiff joints and ease any pain, particularly in the shoulders, neck, back and skull. Soaking in a warm bath of Epsom salts is wonderfully relaxing: it reduces stress and alleviates any aches, swelling, inflamed and/or irritated skin conditions. It can also support skin detoxification and promote better sleep.
Ginger is warming and stimulates circulation. It promotes blood flow and oxygenation throughout the body. It has been traditionally used in Ayurvedic medicine to enhance the ‘fire’ in the body. This makes ginger a great antidote to cold hands and feet! Ginger also has antimicrobial properties, so it helps to prevent and address any infections.
Rosemary improves peripheral blood flow. By enhancing circulation throughout the body, it reduces inflammation, stiffness and muscle tension. It also specifically increases blood flow to the head, thereby relieving headaches, heightening alertness and improving memory. Rosemary also calms anxiety and relieves fatigue.
One of the most sacred herbs in traditional Ayurvedic medicine, tulsi is wonderfully warming, decongesting and uplifting. It gently improves metabolism, reduces lethargy, uplifts the spirits and clears the airways. It is also anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial, which means it can help prevent infections and alleviate any pain or swelling. A great remedy for foggy mindedness, tulsi also relieves anxiety, low mood and headaches.
