DIY Bath Bomb to Relax & Detoxify

Nancy Desjardins

I love baths; they are so relaxing! This is my first week officially back from the cottage! I don’t usually take baths up there, but since coming back, I’ve been taking baths almost every night to reap the benefits of Epsom salts, which help detoxify, boost the immune system, relieve aches, and increase magnesium.  In addition to adding Epsom salts to my baths, I also like to add a little baking soda, coconut oil, and essential oils for the benefits they provide. Now you can bring this to the next level! I’ve been going crazy making bath bombs these past few weeks. They are very popular, and you can make your own with this bath-bomb recipe.

Calendula Healing Hand Salve

Nancy Desjardins

My hands took a beating in the garden last weekend, and the salve was super-helpful. You'll love it.  Last summer, I grew lots of calendula (marigold) flowers in my garden. I add them in my salad, make fresh tea and picked the rest to be dried.  I made my first batch of calendula salve this weekend. I'm happy with the result. Great moisturizer for dry skin and for severely chapped or split skin.

Remember, in Life Goodbyes Are a Gift

It seems that every client, whether in my office or through my online coaching, is going through an amazing and beautiful transition or transformation in his/her life! It’s been an interesting year. This is for anyone who’s been struggling with goodbyes and boundaries.

Nancy Desjardins

Another recipe I want to share with you from Andrea’s "The Heart of Aromatherapy" book is German Chamomile and Lavender Skin Care Salve. You might remember that last year I shared the Calendula Healing Hand Salve, which I love! I grow lots of calendula (marigold) flowers in my garden, and then add them to my salads, make fresh tea, and dry the rest. However, it might be challenging for some of you to find calendula.
