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.

Combine ¼ cup brown sugar, two tablespoons coconut oil, two tablespoons honey and three drops of peppermint essential oil to create a scrub, scrub your feet for 5 minuets then put feet into warm basin for further 10 and use a puma stone to remove dead skin.

Achy feet ? 

The best essential oil for achy feet is lavender, this will work a treat within a foot basin or applied as a scrub, you can also get a lavender water spray to apply to the feet directly.

 

Use all of your scrubs along with a warm bowl of water to clean feet after you use your scrub, or have your feet in warm water basin or bowl for 20 mind before hand to soften skin! I hope these foot scrub recipes inspire you 😁

My experience

Lotil can be used on all areas of the body, I tried Lotil first on my face as it says it’s good for eczema and my checks have been flaring up red and blotchy for weeks. I was really impressed by how fast the cream tried on my skin and the lovely silky smooth results. I would give this product a 10/10 👍
