Redmond Bath Salt Plus (unrefined) – 100% Natural Trace Minerals

Benefits of Redmond Bath Salts.

RedmondBathSalt_logo
How does Redmond Bath Salt promote better health?
Due to the abundance of natural trace minerals in our salt, Redmond Bath Salt provides healing properties for the skin and body. Toxins are released from the body into the bath water through osmosis, while trace minerals from the sea salt are absorbed through the skin.

I so love to take a soaking hot bath & that hot bath is even better when I can add health benefits to it. So soaking in a mineral bath is amazing to help relieve skin issues, to relieve pain & to relax you. I totally loved using this Redmond Bath Salt Plus in my bath, so relaxing & I love the way my skin feels after.

Can the body absorb these trace minerals?
Yes. Through the process of diffusion, toxins are released from the body into the bath water, while trace minerals from the salt are absorbed through the skin.redmond Bath salt plus

So I started checking out the redmond bath salt website awhile back, & I have enjoyed reading the FAQ’s, about the benefits, how to use, & the mineral difference. I knew I would totally love the Redmond bath salt & I was right.

What is the difference between Redmond Bath Salt and Epsom Salts?
Epsom salts are refined salts made up of magnesium sulfate, which has anti inflammatory properties. Not only does Redmond Bath Salt contain a natural source of magnesium, it also has numerous other trace minerals that benefit your body in so many other ways.

Simply add 1/2 cup of Redmond bath salt plus to your running bath, & soak for 30 minutes at least to detoxify, remineralize, & relax. Great at night to help you sleep. A soaking bath is also great immune system boost if you feel like you are getting sick. If you have any issues on your skin such as rashes, stings, bites, ezema etc, this salt bath is very soothing. You can add essential oils of choice depending on your own likes or needs.

The fact that Redmond bath salt plus is natural & unrefined makes it so much better than even store bought epsom salt, natural is always best.

Is Redmond Bath Salt unrefined?
Yes. Redmond Bath Salt & Plus is completely unrefined. In fact, it is so natural, you can eat it.

What are some of the benefits of using Redmond Bath Salt?
Redmond Bath Salt Plus is a great way to escape the stresses of life. It helps soothe stiff, sore, and aching muscles, aids in detoxification, helps improve circulation, helps soften skin, and promotes sound, restful sleep. People also use it to detox and rejuvenate.

So yes I love this bath salt & you can buy your own here in small container or a 7 pound bucket.

This awesome bath salt has made several of my lists: “Cheree’s Favorites” “Toxic Free 2014” “Family Wishlist” & “Teen Approved

DIY gentle effective naturally antibacterial hand/body washing recipe (Powder – Soap)

Here’s a super simple, super cheap, super easy-to-make in your own kitchen, green body scrub and soap alternative for hands that you can use daily.

Get ready to start of 2014 with less toxins

Toxic Free 2014 posts

baking sodaThis very gentle hand & body washing soap alternative that keeps your hands soft is made easily with baking soda &  essential oils of choice.

hand wash baking sodaBaking soda hand washing: We do not use soap on our body or shampoo etc often at all, we tend to mainly use just baking soda for hands, face, body & hair, & it works amazing while being gentile & effective. Baking soda is great alone or mixed with essential oils to the baking soda like tea tree, lavender, lemon, orange, rosemary, eucalyptus, cinnamon, clove etc. (or germ fighter by Plant Therapy, compare to thieves oil) you can also add more than 1 essential oil to create a combo you love, our favorite is Lemon, Tea tree & Eucalyptus.

This powder works great for young & old alike & great for sensitive skin & skin issues, skin rashes, dry skin, oily skin on & on. Baking soda naturally balances PH of the skin, and  essential oils are antibacterial without the toxins. (A teen favorite  & family favorite for mixing & using, so this makes this a Cheree’s Favorite too)

Let the kids help you mix this up, they love to help, it is safe for them to help & they will get a mini aromatherapy dose & it is great for homeschool to show them how to mix cleaners & other DIY items to be used during school hours & in the classroom. As a matter of fact my kids call this our school soap 🙂

When baking soda is combined with water the resulting reaction turns baking soda into a natural non toxic PH balancing mild antiseptic, according to the textbook “Biology: Life on Earth with Physiology book.” And it is rare for anyone to have an allergic reaction because its only ingredients are sodium, hydrogen carbon and oxygen.

NEWSFLASH: Baking soda does not contain aluminum here & here
Info straight from Arm & Hammer’s Facebook page, where they responded to a question about Aluminum: Arm & Hammer Thanks for your question. We are happy to tell you that ARM & HAMMER Baking Soda does not contain aluminum, parabens, colorants or animal-derived ingredients. ARM & HAMMER Baking Soda is pure, versatile, effective, safe, and affordable for baking, household and personal care uses. Thanks for being an ARM & HAMMER fan!

Lets get mixing:

baking soda body washHow to: We use an empty parmesan cheese shaker I add one box of baking soda to it & sit it by the sink (there is also a shaker on the tub because we use it in the shower & bath) I suggest trying it without the essential oils first if you are sensitive to scents or prone to hives or skin issues. If adding the essential oils add 10 to 20 drops (or more) & work into all of the baking soda with a fork.

To wash hands: simply wet hands & sprinkle on the baking soda rub around on hands just like you would soap then wash off, you will fast figure out how much you need.

For body: Use the same way in bath or shower, rub gently on wet skin & rinse.

For hair: sprinkle about 1 tsp into several cups of warm water, stir till dissolved & add to wet hair, work in, rinse then repeat if needed (for more shampoo ideas & conditioner ideas go here)

For a moisturizing body wash: simply add a bit of raw coconut oil to the palm of your hand & shake some of your baking soda into your hand, rub together to mix then wash, hands, face, body, feet whatever & use warm water to wash off.

Great for hunters: If you just use baking soda to wash hands with it is a great no scent options for hunters, my husband loves it. (Options to add epsom salt, borax)

Also great to carry Camping: Great for easy washing of hands & body while camping, & it can be used to wash dishes too.
