The Goodness Inside…

Ginger

ginger heart slice

This spicy root has a history of healing and a multitude of uses. In this case, Ginger is utilized in the formula to head up the anti-inflammatory department. This makes ginger a natural aid in promoting healthy digestion by relaxing the branch of the nervous system in charge of this process and increasing digestive secretions. Smooths out the process, you know? This makes this form of treatment a good option for those with digestive ailments.

Mugwort

What the heck is that? Mugwort is a medicinal flowering plant that belongs to the daisy family. This herb, however, is far from a delicate flower. Mugwort (when applied topically) is a powerhouse in the realm of promoting blood circulation for pain relief. Additionally, this is an anti-spasmodic (or anti-spasm) making it an incredible reliever of menstrual cramps and smooth muscle pain throughout the body.

Saffron

This well-known, rare, and costly flower commonly used for crafting delectable dishes has a medicinal side. The lesser-known qualities of this vibrant herb include the promotion of micro-circulation. This means Saffron is used to soothe neuropathy, pain in the lower body, and heart disease. This is also used in Mountainous regions of East Asia to combat the effects of frostbite and the frigid cold.

Spoonful of Saffron

Lamiophlomis

This is undoubtedly the rarest herb in the formula. Wildcrafted sustainable on the Tibetan Plateaus (AKA the Roof of the world, google it), the pain-relieving properties of this herb are used to combat the effects of Rheumatoid Arthritis, Osteoarthritis, Traumatic Injuries, and Auto-immune disease.

Rhodiola

It’s likely you’ve seen this name before at your local plant nursery (if you’re into perennials, that is). This is a bright yellow, flowering plant that effects you topically in ways its appearance might lead on. This flower is energizing and can even aid in athletic performance by reducing muscle stiffness and soreness through oxygenating the blood. So fresh!

Tibetan Purple Salt

Tibetan pink lake

Harvested from spring-fed salt lakes, this Tibetan salt comes in a beautiful shade range of pinks and purples. Not only is it beautiful, but it’s also smart! When applied topically, this type of salt is rich in minerals such as Magnesium and Potassium which can reduce spasms, soften stiff muscles, and also be beneficial to the heart.

Acorus

A grassy plant of sorts! Acorus is harvested from the root and used in these soaks to dissolve biofilms that may inhibit digestion, joint function, and brain function. Through promoting neurogenesis– Acorus can squash anxiety, heighten your mood, and provide outstanding mental clarity.

Treatment Time = You Time!

You’ll feel like your at the spa with these relaxing soaks, but you’ll be doing yourself a favor much greater. This herbal supplement is systematic and needs some time to set in- 30 minutes to be exact. By embarking on this foot soak journey, you’ve passively set aside time in the day just for you. So, do something that makes you happy: read a book, pop on a fresh face mask, or just enjoy some silence because you’ve just given yourself the hard-to-come-by gift of “you time”, savor every moment.
