I’m a massive fan of detox baths and usually combine it with my beauty routine, I will put on a face mask and hair conditioning mask while I’m in my bath. Lately I was in a herbalists shop to get some more epsom & vitamins and a nice assistant recommended magnesium flakes. Never have I ever used them before, she explained it was a muscle relaxant and it can be very powerful.

When I had my bath with the magnesium flakes my muscles were so relaxed, a bit to relaxed! It was a nice feeling and now I love having a magnesium bath now and then. I also felt so relaxed and sleepy when I come out the bath which is great! Magnesium has other benefits too like anti aging and helping with skin conditions.

Discovering the burbur detox 😯💖✅

A while ago I heard about the burbur detox while I was in a herbalists shop, I couldn’t believe that one plant could do so much good for the human body. I listened to the lady speaking about the burbur product and knew I needed to look it  all up online once I got home. Sure enough it turned out that it was a pretty popular  go to detox product for people with Lyme disease, kidney issues and other disorders. Apparently it also removed heavy metals from the body!

Burbur Detox is made from an extract produced from the leaves of Desmodium molliculum, a genus of the flowering plant family Fabaceae, a perennial that has been found and harvested in areas of Peru as high as 3,500 meters above sea level. Burbur leaf extract has been traditionally used for its body cleansing properties including the detoxification of the liver, kidneys, lymphatic system and the ground matrix.

The herb has many uses in native medicine. It can be used for the treatment of gastritis, kidney stones, malaria, allergies, asthma, inflammation, parasites, tumors, viruses and as a blood purifier and sedative.

Also I found out that it can kill tumour cells and a whole host of other amazing stuff ! So I’m completely sold it doesn’t hurt to try right ? A small bottle was around £15 pound to buy but it seemed worth it. I haven’t started my burbur detox yet but I hope to blog about the results in a future post, if anyone else has done this detox please let me know what your results were ?

All you do is put 10 to 20 drops in water and drink it and repeat it a few times a day and continue for a few months, dose is depending on how much toxicity you have. A lot of reviews online are really positive and I can’t wait to get started 😉

Mother’s day pampering at Blow LTD 💋💘🌸🌱www.blowltd.com

With Mother’s Day fast approaching, we might all be looking for ways to show our mums how much they mean to us. Whether that’s by taking them for Sunday brunch, buying them some lovely flowers and a card, or splashing out on a gift. There are loads of options for spoiling your mum and show her how grateful you are for those years of lost sleep and unconditional love. While smashed avo on toast and bouquets are a lovely sentiment, why not change it up this Mother’s Day by treating your mum to a little pampering instead.

The power of pampering
Many of us lead busy lives with lots of different commitments and responsibilities, which can often include looking after other people. But you shouldn’t always feel that you have to sacrifice your own needs in order to care for others. Taking time out for yourself helps you remember that your needs are as important as those of others. In fact, caregivers who look after themselves will feel happier and be less stressed, meaning that they can give better care to their loved ones. Whether it’s a weekly bath with a glass of wine, or regularly treating yourself to one of your favourite beauty treatments, there are plenty of ways to fit some pampering into your life.

We all know the rejuvenating powers of a little bit of TLC. While regular self-care makes us feel great, fitting in time for a spot of pampering is actually a fantastic way to help manage everyday stress. When left unchecked, even low-level stress and tension can negatively affect your health. Stress can make you more prone to certain diseases and weaken your immune system. By actively reducing your stress levels, you can prevent everyday annoyances wreaking havoc to your body in the long term.

More than any of us, mums are often in need of some unwinding and pampering. After all, parenthood is one the hardest, most underpaid jobs in the world that comes with no training or instruction manual. The fact you are here today wouldn’t be possible without your mother (thanks mum!). Mother’s Day is the perfect opportunity to spoil your mama in return for all that she has done for you, and maybe steal the spot as the favourite child at the same time. If you are looking for a thoughtful way to treat your mum, then booking her a professional beauty treatment may be the answer. Let everyone else buy their mothers flowers and wine, while you do something a little bit different to show your mum how much you love her.

And relax …

Nothing beats a soothing massage or facial to help your muscles relax (including the ones in your face). Whether it’s helping to unwind those tight muscles from carrying growing children here, there and everywhere, or helping to relieve persistent niggles like back tension. A massage can be a great way to let your mum unwind as she can sit back, relax, and enjoy being pampered. A professional facial is a fantastic option too, as this can help your mum’s skin feel energised and hydrated.
Get dolled up

If you think a massage or a facial is not your mum’s thing, services like makeovers or hair styling are viable alternatives. Or a sleek new manicure for some Instagram-worthy nails would also go down really well. You could even book yourself a treatment at the same time as your mum. That way, you could both feel extra glamorous after a professional makeover, blow dry or nail treatment before heading out for a celebratory Mother’s Day drink (or two). Giving never felt so good!

Helping busy working mums is at the heart of what blow LTD, the beauty on-demand app, do.
