Herbal Bath Soak for Cramps

Herbal Bath Soak for Cramps

You bend over writhing in pain. It’s that time of month again, one that women all over the world have been familiar with since they were teens or younger.

There is hardly a woman or girl out there that does not experience cramps when she is on her period. Do you pop a pill, wither up in bed, or grin and bare it for the day?

In the days leading up to my period and while I am on my period I try to up my magnesium intake because it has been shown to ease menstrual cramps.

Like most women, I normally can’t take the day off when “Aunt Flow” shows up. Instead, I treat myself to a few extra kindnesses as the days approach and during those first two or three especially hard days.

Herbal Bath Soak 2

One kindness that I allow myself is a bath. (Thank the Lord for a house with a bathtub again!!!) Not just any bath mind you but an herbal bath soak for cramps to relax the cramps and soothe my body.

A warm bath alone will help ease menstrual cramps but when Epsom salts which are full of magnesium are added to a bath along with soothing herbs and essential oils that are known for their helpful properties, the benefits are tenfold!

Baths, while relaxing tend to make me over heated so I like to drink a slightly warm cup of my Women’s Tea Blend (full of magnesium) or a glass of Pineapple-Carrot-Tumeric Spritzer.

Herbal Bath Soak for Cramps

1/2 to 2 cups Epsom salt
1/4 cup dried lavender flowers
1/4 cup dried chamomile flowers
1/4 cup dried rose petals
4 drops clary sage essential oil (optional)
Muslin bag or cheesecloth

Add all the dried herbs to a cheesecloth or muslin bag. Add four drops on clary sage essential oil, if choosing to use. Tie shut and add to a tube of warm water.

Add the Epsom salts to the bath, using a smaller amount if it is your first time using them. Swirl them around until dissolved.

Sink down into the tube and relax for 15 to 30 minutes.

Seasonal Allergy Tincture

How to Make a Seasonal Allergy Tincture

Does sneezing, wheezing, and watery eyes sound familiar?

It’s allergy season, for many that may mean intense suffering for the next several months. For others, it could be a mild irritation.

Often, seasonal allergies are connected to an unhealthy gut. While many (if not most) people who suffer from seasonal allergies could benefit from a gut healing protocol such as GAPS. Not everyone has the time for it, or might not feel quite up to the challenge quite yet.

Thankfully, there are God-given plants in nature that work together to help our bodies fight off allergic responses.

My favorite way to ease allergy symptoms is to use a seasonal allergy tincture with three of my go-to herbs: nettle, dandelion root, and dried rose hips.

All three of these herbs contain bioflavonoids, namely quercetin, (as well as numerous other vitamins and nutrients) that work as natural antihistamines.

DIY Stress Reliever Tea

DIY Stress Reliever Tea 2

Some days you need a break, which is really hard when you are a mom. For me the ideal break is separating myself from everyone, reading a couple pages from a book, listening to soothing music, and drinking a cup of tea.

Who am I kidding? Most days as a mom that doesn’t happen, at least not until the kids are in bed and even then you don’t know when one might find their way out of their bedroom…

That’s when you settle for the tea. Tea, specifically herbal tea, has a powerful effect on the body.

Passion flower, chamomile, lemon balm, catnip, and lavender are all known for their soothing and relaxing effects, that come together to make this simple DIY stress reliever tea. One of the best parts? It is so simple to make that you won’t feel stressed trying to make it.

Need to wind down? Head over to Modern Alternative Health to make this DIY Stress Reliever Tea!

Special bonus for our readers, when you buy the Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle through our links you will get the free gift of my yet to be released ebook, “Sipped: Simple Nourishing Drinks for Winter.” 

Don’t you wish you had affordable short-cuts to make healthy living easier? Are you tired of trying to make a Whole Foods lifestyle work on a Trader Joe’s budget?

I get it. You want the best for your family. You want to raise healthy kids, have strong immune systems, be more fit and energetic, and be intentional about creating a natural home, but sometimes it just feels so hard.

There’s a lot to learn and the internet can be more than a little overwhelming at times.

I know what it’s like to feel that healthy living shouldn’t be this difficult, and it shouldn’t have to cost so much, either! Don’t you ever wish someone would just tell you exactly what you need to know and how to make these changes for less?

When you have the right info and tools at your fingertips, it all comes together so much more easily. You know what to cook for your family. You’re more confident in choosing natural alternatives. You can easily replace store-bought products with DIY options that really work. You feel better (and even look better, too). Healthy living becomes less stressful and more enjoyable.

That’s why Stephanie and her team have put together the Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle for the fourth year in a row. Each year, they’re amazed at how many families are saying “yes!” to their health and taking them up on this super short opportunity to get a complete collection of natural-living resources for a crazy low price.
