Welcome to the DW Healing Arts Be Well series of wellness tips for January 2016. Each day I will highlight a card from my Balance Resource Cards decks. The wellness resources will help you bring balance to your body, mind and spirit if used on a regular basis.
Take a moment right now, and practice today's wellness tip as you read this. Grab your journal, turn off your phone, find a quiet place without interruptions and set a timer for 20 or 30 minutes. This is time you are investing in yourself. You are worth it.
Give yourself permission to balance your life.
May you Be Well! Love, Deanna
At the first sign of a cold, soak in a tub of warm water boost your immune system and eliminate toxins through your sweat glands. Pour 2 cups Epsom salts, 32 ounces hydrogen peroxide and a tea ball filled with 2 tablespoons of fresh grated ginger into your bath water. Soak for 20 minutes. Always get out slowly and moisturize your skin after you dry your body. Remember to drink fluids to re-hydrate as your body sweats out extra fluid with the toxins.
For a relaxing bath which can reduce muscle pain and relax tired muscles, try 1 cup Epsom salts, 1 cup baking soda and 10 - 20 drops of an essential oil such as lavender or vanilla. Soak for 15 to 20 minutes, then slowly get out of the tub, dry off, moisturize your skin and drink plenty of fluids.
Pamper yourself with a hot bath!
