Did you know that April is National Stress Awareness Month? Not that we need a whole month of awareness to realize that we are all over stressed, but it helps to point it out so we can all purpose to take time and relax today.
If you are a mom, getting a few minutes alone to de-stress can be absolutely essential to your sanity. It’s not always easy to take time out for a candle-lit bath, but even pampering yourself for a few minutes a day can really help.
Here are 5 natural products I use to help stay calm, focused and peaceful…
1. AHAVA Lavender Mineral Bath Salts
Calm your nerves with the power of relaxing lavender. AHAVA’s Lavender Mineral Bath Salts work quickly to soothe the senses and promote well-being. These yummy bath salts are 100% natural and packed with healthy minerals such as magnesium, calcium, sodium and potassium, the skin-energizing Dead Sea salt crystals that will help relax muscles and joints as well as keep skin soft, smooth and refreshingly hydrated.
Wondering why you should take time out at least once a week to take a bath? Read this post about the benefits of soaking in epsom salts.
