How to make Chamomile water ?
1/4 cup Dried Chamomile flowers & 1 1/2 cup Hot (not boiling) Distilled Water
Method: Place Chamomile flowers into a heat safe jar that has a lid. Heat the water until bubbles start to form, but before it begins to boil. Pour the hot water over the Chamomile flowers (ensure that they are covered – don’t worry if they float to the top). Place the lid on the mixture, and let steep for around 30 minutes. Strain out the Chamomile using a cheese cloth or a very fine strainer. Store the water in the fridge. Placing the Chamomile water into a dark or light coloured spray bottle is a lovely way to give as a gift! Note: This mixture is most potent when first created, but can last for months when left in the fridge.
Epsom Salt Bath
Benefits of Epsom Salt The health benefits of using Epsom Salt have been celebrated for centuries. Despite its name, Epsom Salt is not actually a salt! It is a chemical compound made up of magnesium, sulfur and oxygen. This makes them an effective, natural way to remove harmful toxins from the body. Epsom Salt is used to promote healthy skin, muscle joints and nervous tissue. The magnesium present in Epsom Salts helps to improve muscle and nerve function. It is also beneficial for blood flow and oxygenation throughout the body. The sulfates are key in improving the absorption of nutrients in our bodies. And they play a role in flushing out toxins, which eases things like migraine headaches. Give your partner the gift of relaxation this Valentine’s Day!
Recipe: 1-2 cups Epsom Salt Optional: Dried Chamomile flowers, Essential Oil
Method: Add Epsom Salt to air tight container. Mix dried flowers or 1-2 drops of your favourite essential oil with the Epsom Salt (optional). A small glass jar is the perfect way to show off the beauty of your finished product! Idea: Layer the salt and dried flowers (instead of mixing) in the air tight container for a striking effect. This will look beautiful but will result in bits of flowers floating around in your bath. This is not for everyone and can cause trouble for some drains.
