Stop. Refresh. Recharge.
No matter how fast we multi-task on the treadmill of life, it seems increasingly impossible to keep up. Stress takes a huge toll on overall health and happiness, and it can seem nearly impossible to maintain balance or even recognise our own bodies' limits. Compound this with the multitude of often unavoidable toxins that modern living puts us into contact with and you have a recipe for total mind/body/spirit overwhelm.
EpZen bath salts are the ultimate stress-reliever, balancing the skin's pH while soothing and relaxing your muscles.
PURE: unscented for the super-sensitive, to add your own special scent, or create beautiful bath products (see recipes below) that make wonderful, restorative gifts! Perfect for pre-pedicure skin softening, or any time you just need to take a time-out. Use 2 cups in a bathtub or 1 cup in a foot soak bucket.
As a precautionary measure, AVOID during first trimester of pregnancy.
RELAX: beautifully scented with pure natural essential oils of Rosewood, Ylang Ylang, Rose Geranium, Frankincense and May Chang. Wonderful for the overworked, overburdened, or stressed out - and anyone else! Use 2 cups in a bathtub, or 1 cup in a foot soak bucket. As a precautionary measure, AVOID if pregnant.
Using EpZen to make spa-like products:
'Bath Tea': In a glass or porcelain bowl, mix 2 cups of EpZen bath salts with dried lavender, rose or chamomile flowers and a couple drops of a suitable pure essential oil of your choice (eg. pink grapefruit, sweet orange or kaffir lime, etc). Then fill a square of muslin cloth, tie closed with twine, and store in a sealed plastic bag or airtight container. To make bath tea, just toss a bag into bath water and as it seeps, the salts will dissolve, releasing the fragrance. NB: muslin bags can be reused or composted.
'Salt Glow': Crush 1 cup EpZen with a rolling pin or similar until very fine** and place in glass or porcelain bowl. Add ½ cup of pure, preferably organic food-grade oil (eg. any combo of almond, avocado, apricot, jojoba, macadamia or grapeseed oil) and five drops of any suitable pure essential oil of your choice (see below for ideas). Mix well, then use as a luxurious skin smoother in the bath or pre-shower. Note: Best used immediately to ensure oil freshness, or store in a dark glass container with an airtight seal.
**if using a blender, be sure to rinse thoroughly to prevent rusting.
'Stay Centred': Oil Blend: mix 2 drops each of Lime oil and Sandalwood with 1 drop Neroli or Bergamot.
'Peaceful Rest': Oil Blend: mix 2 drops each of Mandarin oil and Lavender with 1 drop of Chamomile oil.

It is important to keep the vulnerable pH level of our skin's acid mantle intact - easily disrupted by everyday soaps and detergents, yet crucial to guarding you against environmental elements, pollutants, and ageing free-radicals. EpZen pH is in the absolutely optimal range to maintain skin integrity - measuring from 5 to 7 (varying whether bathing in hard, soft or neutral water). So take time for yourself today.
