I am a fan of spa days and pampering. Cost wise it really isn't practical to indulge on a daily, or even weekly trip to the spa. It doesn't have to stop you though from creating spa experiences at home. You can recreate the "relaxation room" experience. You don't have to go to trek to a spa resort to take in a mineral bath or to get an exfoliating treatment. You can do it yourself at home. Did you know that mineral-rich Epsom salt bathwater can help turn rough, dry skin into smooth, soft skin? For even greater benefit you can use partially dissolved salt crystals to exfoliate dead skin cells and rough spots away [source: Epsom Salt Council]. For less than $2.00 you can have the benefits of a relaxing mineral bath, and a skin softening exfoliator.
During my pregnancy I would take a warm soak in an Epsom bath and light a couple of aroma therapy candles. That paired with relaxing music was something to really look forward to after a day at the office. It was a treat that I wouldn't have to leave the comfort of my home to get. I gladly share my inexpensive pampering secrets to anyone who will hear it! My husband is hesitant to try it out since he really isn't a "bath" person, but the next time that he has aching muscles from a tough workout I'll run the tub for him myself and insist that he try it out. It really does help in easing aches and pains. With Epsom Salt from the Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products line I have found that one carton can last for quite a few preparations. They do have a Lavender Soak Epsom Salt version, but I prefer the standard magnesium sulfate. In addition to being a great value Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Product have a 100% satisfaction guarantee. For more information you can visit: http://www.walgreens.com/walgreensbrand.
