The greatest gifts have hidden historical value. The Brits started mining this stuff in the late 1800's I believe. The greatest gifts cannot be exploited by the Numerati. I will address the Numerati in future posts. I will give credit to a blog contributor who as far as I know coined the term Numerati. It is like the Illuminati but (scary thought) wider spread.
Don't laugh now...here it is, the gift that is....Epsom Salt.
What a terrible marketing name, and you better be thankful for the terrible name. Because it will allow you to buy this product at reasonable prices for a long time, until the mining group for Epsom gets into the 21st century, good luck with that, and let's hope it takes a long time.
- Lousy Name
- Basic component in expensive bath products.
- Soothes aching muscles
- Provides for a good sleep
- Regulates stress level by chemical action
- Resolves many skin irritation issues
- Inexpensive when bought at Walmart and others.
Put 1 cup to 1 full quart into bath water, soak. It is really that simple. Do not worry about leaving a bit residual on your skin, no need to shower afterwords, it is better to leave the residual.
If injured, in addition to the bath, pour crystals into a hot water soaked towel, and wrap around injured joint. Soak while watching Dancing with the Stars, ouch!
Seriously folks, this stuff is magic. But it is a basic mineral with a terrible name, therefore no one markets it, or tells the truth about it.
Think you need a $75 professional massage? Maybe you just need a 75c soak in Epsom.
I am not joking, try this stuff, $3 per quart roughly, in Hawaii, much cheaper on mainland I am sure
