Bathing with Purpose
With all the talk about the importance of antioxidants and omega oils, it is easy to overlook one very key link in our diets – the mineral magnesium. A mineral considered by traditional Chinese medicine as the ‘mineral of beauty’, if you’re even remotely interested in remaining youthful and keeping your energy and vitality up, then read on!
Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the body, with around 50 per cent being found in our bones, and is a vital component in the uptake of calcium in our bodies. Why do we need calcium? Calcium is essential to not only the maintenance of healthy bones, but also to many processes within the body. While magnesium can be found in many foods, including tofu, salmon, bananas, spinach, sardines, seeds like pumpkin seeds and nuts such as almonds, brazils and cashews, you can also up the ante on your bodies consumption of the mega-mineral thanks to our new Magnesium Oil Original Flakes.
Magnesium Oil Original Flakes are dry flakes of magnesium chloride and other naturally occurring trace minerals, all packaged up in a super convenient form for use in baths and foot soaks.
While you may not have thought your body was suffering from a magnesium deficiency, possible side effects resulting from one can include everything from fatigue, PMS, insomnia, brittle bones and cramps to anxiety, headaches and even kidney stones.
The flakes work by dissolving in warm water, providing a medicinal-like bath of cell restoring magnesium chloride. Magnesium Oil Original Bath Flakes are known to be highly effective for healing skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, and dermatitis. Soaking in magnesium salts has also been shown to markedly improve skin hydration, speed wound healing, enhance skin barrier function, and decrease inflammation.
While magnesium is often poorly absorbed through the stomach, it is easily absorbed through the skin, hence making these flakes the perfect addition to your weekly bathing routine!
Magnesium Oil Original Bath Flakes are now available at East Day Spa and Spring retail (RRP $15), and also as a luxurious 30 minute muscle-relaxing bath treatment at East Day Spa, or as part of a foot soak at Spring
