I suspect Dr D will make us sign a disclaimer first!


You just need to be sure that her DH hasn't read the blogs or that he doesn't like to hunt Golfzilla's...

Perhaps both??  You could smoke and detox at the same time.

Depends on what you are trying to achieve with the soak.  I use between 2-6 lbs.  For a regular soak I use a 2 lb. box.  Yes,... I use a lot, but it works!

Best buy on epsom salts is at costco in the 12 lb bag or another great deal is at the Dollar Tree.  They sell it by the 2 lb box for $1.00

DH is back from his trip, so I had the luxury of taking a long bath this morning.  Mistake #1.  Now I just want to curl up and go to bed.  I used about 2 c.  After a little while my belly started making all sorts of noises.    I feel physically tired and a little nauseated.  My arms are aching.

Ribbit, this being the case should one start with less and gradually increase the amount of esalt

Wow! Did you begin with that amount of esalt or increase as you took more baths

I've never had soreness from an epsom salt bath, hmmm.  Have to ponder that one.  You mean aching like sore muscles?

For tummy gurgling and troubles, or to help get things moving, you can also rub a little peppermint essential oil on your tummy...dilute with a bit of olive oil or some such.  That's especially good for gas and cramping, but also helpful with gastroenteritis (stomach flu) pain.

I have been thinking about this since my last post, because I have never had my body revolt from a mild epsoms salt bath, like Ribbit has.

I think I remember reading here that she was tired, due to her full-time "hands on" mommying and home schooling and house wifing and barely has a moment for herself.  I don't know about any of you, but I would be more than tired, I would be flat out exhausted. I would think the bath would do her wonders.  

Listen to your body miss Ribbit.  You could be hyper-sensitive because you are worn out.  I don't know, I am really scratching my head on this one.  I hope you are feeling better soon.

My usual soaks are with 2-3 lbs of epsom salt, there is plenty of therapeutic effect from 2-3 lbs.  If I am achey, sore mucsles or really not feeling like myself I add more, up to 6 lbs.  Please note: I have a large bath tub and it is rare that I use 6 lbs and most common when I increase it is up to 4lbs total.  

Golf if you have a big tub, you can start with 4C and you should be fine.  If you have a smaller tub start with 2C.  For ultra relaxation use some relaxing essential oil, soft music and candles.  It works for romancing the one your with also.
