Bathed in pain
He got it working for me and I grabbed the MP3 player and put it on .5 because that's about as loud as I could tolerate it. I got my potions ready for the double, double toil and trouble. Here's what I use for my detox bath...
Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay- 1/4-1/2 cup. It's about a pound of the stuff and is known for tightening pores and detoxifying when used in a bath. It is also a GREAT facial! Put 2 tbsp of this with 1 tbsp organic apple cider vinegar, stir and keep it in the fridge for a spot treatment or use it for a facial and you can feel it tightening your face as it dries. When your face begins to pulsate like a Wes Craven monster it's about time to remove it.
Epsom Salt- 1 cup. I'm sure most of you know it eases aches and pains and such. This stuff works instantaneous on the Mr but doesn't do quite as much good for me right away. I always feel better afterward but it's like a miracle for him.
Relax Synergy Essential Oil Blend- I love this stuff. It has a nice relaxing scent and you only need 2-4 drops for the whole tub. I also use a drop in the facial mask to make the apple cider vinegar easier to take since I loathe that smell. You can also put some in a water bottle and freshen your sheets, hair, face, clothes, whatever.
The Mr said to make sure I got my neck down in the water as much as possible. I did that the best I could which meant I had to sit with my knees bent up out of the water.
Of course the first thing that came to my mind was when Freddy Krueger's glove comes up in the bathtub.
By the end of my bath I felt about 25% better which sucked but better is better. I hated missing a workout because of it but I didn't have a choice. Rat bastard migraine. I started making to do lists and getting things crossed off of it so I don't go into today with another one. Note to self...THIS is why procrastination is bad!
How do you handle migraines/bad headaches?
