• 7 ways to relax, rejuvenate and detox these holidays

    December 20, 2016 • BEAUTY, GUIDES, LIFE

    A long weekend or holiday is a great time to relax, rejuvenate and detox. We love the opportunity to reconnect with nature and spend time in the beautiful natural environment, be that at the beach, bush walking, or simply in the backyard or garden. We love to relax with family and friends, and spend time in the kitchen creating delicious wholesome food. There are lots of other ways we love to relax on holidays too, and here are our top seven:

    Take a relaxing mineral milk bath
    Ways to relax and detox this festive season - Corrynne's Mineral Milk Bath

    Just the thing to promote a feeling of calm and relaxation, and to soothe tired, aching muscles. Corrynne’s mineral milk bath is packed full of minerals, such as magnesium, zinc and silica, which are renowned for their healing properties. It is also made with BP grade Epsom salts, guaranteeing there are no heavy metals present. To use, add half a cup to your bath and immerse yourself in the milky tonic. Add 1 teaspoon of quality olive oil for a more moisturising bath, or even some rose petals for a beautiful at home spa experience.
