Soak Bath Salts
Well not literally a broken back, and it was a few days ago now, but I had been doing back-breaking work lifting heavy loads and pushing a fully laden sack barrow up hills all day and had four more days to go of slogging. It was also nearly that time of the lunar month for me. When my back (which I had sustained an injury to five years) ago started to ache, I thought I wouldn’t be able to carry on with the job. I thought I would give it another day and see how I felt.
When I got home, I looked at my bruised legs, filled the bath up and poured in a cup full of Soak bath salts. They contain Epsom salts plus essential oil of orange and geranium and Abund Essence (nice touch) as well as goji berries (which you have to catch when you pull the plug hole so they don’t block up the pipes!) Also Camu Camu powder for a shot of vitamin C to the skin, and flax oil. All in all I felt soft and smelt delectable after my bath, but the real magic came the next morning, my bad back was just a memory. I did some pilates and yoga stretches before work. I repeated the bathing in the evening and stretching in the morning routine for the full five days of work and by the last day of work felt like I could have carried on forever. Lesson learned; I will never underestimate the power of the bath salt again.
