We’ve been looking at how the consistent practice of small habits can make all the difference to your overall state of wellbeing. So far, we’ve explored morning habits such using a Lemon Tonic to begin your day, the importance of doing breakfast well and the multiple benefits of regular dry body brushing.

Now it’s time to explore some evening rituals to amp up your wellness factor!

First up, is to ensure you are getting a Magnesium Fix.

MAGNESIUM FIX

Well known to be essential for muscle relaxation, Magnesium is a critical nutrient. It is estimated that 80% of adults are deficient in Magnesium. It is not a mineral that can be tested for in blood tests. So it is a silent deficiency with slow subtle health deterioration as its effect.

Over 300 enzymes utilise Magnesium which means it is responsible for thousands of reactions in the body every second. Some critical uses include:

●  Detoxification

●  Growth

●  Repair

●  Immunity

●  Healthy Brain Function.

There are many forms of Magnesium.

You can use a powder, tablet, oil, cream or salt. (Your practitioner or health food shop assistant can help recommend a form that suits you).

Here’s your challenge:

Use 1 cup of Epsom salts dissolved in the bath and soak for 10-15 minutes. If you don’t have a bath, use a foot spa/small shallow bucket to soak your feet.

Remember, the Magnesium is absorbed into the blood stream through the skin, its not only helping the feet but the whole system.

I mix the following blends for muscle pain:

●  10 drops eucalyptus oil

●  1⁄2 cup chamomile flowers

●  2 drops chamomile oil

●  1 tablespoon of Magnesium Oxide powder.

Or replace the eucalyptus with 10 drops of lavender oil for relaxation, nervous system support and to help sleep.
