With winter coming up, and the weather being all over the place right now, I think a lot of us will be coming down with a cold... I know that I did! I was able to stop it in its tracks though! How? By taking a mustard bath!!
Sounds gross right? Well, I didn't actually bathe in mustard, if that's what you're wondering! The Mustard Bath, by Barefoot Venus is actually a therapeutic bath soak. It is perfect if you have a cold, are congested, and have muscle aches. I had all of the above... The cold was ever so kindly passed on to me by my best friend, the congestion was due to my allergies, and the muscle pain was from my whiplash and severe sprains in the muscles in my back from a car accident I was in last week (I'm ok now, just sore, but physio therapy is helping with that!).
Anyways, I had gotten this as a gift for my mom, and when I told her I was going to buy it but forgot and really wanted to take a bath with it, she suggested I use hers, to first off give it a try before spending my money on it. I loved it, and will absolutely be spending my money on it! Haha!
Barefoot Venus Therapeutic Mustard Bath - $19.99 CAD
What does Barefoot Venus say?
The fine art of primping is a difficult task, especially when you’re feeling under the weather. What’s a girl to do when the primping must prevail? The Barefoot Venus Bathing Beauties know the answer: simply run a hot bath, add the mustard bath, inhale, and relax. The therapeutic properties of mustard go to work pulling nasty toxins from your skin, while the spirit of wintergreen, eucalyptus and rosemary surround you in a curative cape, leaving you feeling top-notch and ready to indulge your next girlish whim.
What do I say?
I absolutely love this stuff!! It smells very strongly of eucalyptus and mustard, but it definitely de-congests! It comes with a handy wooden scoop, and about 5 or 6 scoopfuls in a really hot bath is all you need, but of course, this depends on the size of your tub.
It turns your water slightly yellow, which although is quite the unpleasant sight, is really not that bad. Right away with the vapor of the hot water, the smells filled up my bathroom.
It was so relaxing to soak in, and I must say that it definitely helps with circulation, because when I got out of the bath, my whole body felt warm, and this is usually never the case! I'm usually rushing for my slippers and warm house coat! It soothed the pain in my back, and the next morning, all of the symptoms from my soon-to-be bad cold were gone and I was feeling good as new!
Ingredients: 100% Natural. Magnesium Sulfate (Epsom Salt), Mustard Seed Powder, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria), Chamomile Flower Powder, Gaultheria Procumbens (Wintergreen) Oil, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Oil and Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Oil.
Would I recommend this? Absolutely!! The price is very reasonable, as it should last you quite a while. This makes the perfect gift for pretty much anyone, too! Friends, family... It's also a fantastic idea for a hostess gift, too! Anyone can appreciate this!
Barefoot Venus is a Canadian company, so if you live outside of Canada, I think your best bet would be to visit their website: http://www.barefootvenus.com to place orders.
