Raw honey, which comes straight from the beehive, contains bee pollen, bee propolis, and plenty of antioxidants. Processed honey may contain less of this and so a lot of people will opt for raw honey for more powerful health benefits, I personally like raw and processed honey and feel benefits of both.

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.
