It's All About YOU
For me lighting a candle has become an evening ritual. I get home from work, set down my bag and keys, pop the heating on and light my favourite candle. Lighting a candle signifies that it’s time to relax.
Scented candles are a perfect way to subtly add a wonderful fragrance to your space. At Zjoosh we have a wide variety of scented candles available for purchase in a number of fragrances. Everything from creamy vanilla scents, to airy & clean or woody fragrances. I personally love floral fragrances, but we really have something for every taste so you can burn the scents YOU love.
Candlelight provides a warm ambient glow to living spaces. No matter how you approach interior design, candles add to your home decor. Strategically placed candles throughout your living room make it cozy and calm, and lighting a candle in the bathroom provides a spa-like retreat feeling. Run a warm bath and add our ZJOOSH therapeutic bath salts and take care of YOU.
You’ve heard it said that “The ocean cures all.” For years I will admit that I thought about Bath Salts much like pot-pourri – one of those things hanging around bathrooms in the 80s with no specific function other than to gather dust. It is only in the last little while that I have begun to understand that natural bath salt have true therapeutic qualities. Submerging our bodies into a warm bath with salt is proven to be one of the best ways to restore ourselves after a long day. This beautiful ritual soothes the muscles, hydrates the skin, detoxifies the body, and relieves internal swelling. The macro and trace minerals can actually be drawn into the bloodstream during a warm bath, which can help to balance out the entire body.
Soaking in a warm salty bath even for 15-20 minutes once a week, can improve the skin barrier function, hydrate the skin and decrease inflammation. Regular salt bathing has even been shown to improve eczema and psoriasis. The minerals found within a salty soak also work to promote more youthful, glowing skin from the inside out by purging impurities from the skin and balancing skin moisture levels.
A salty bath can help to increase overall circulation throughout the body, which in turn works to further relax our internal systems. Along with eliminating stress, bath salts help to soothe our muscular systems and aid in both mental and physical rejuvenation. A warm bath is perfect for helping us relax when we’re tense or anxious.
Salt baths can play a role in encouraging better sleep patterns. Taking baths with magnesium-rich salts allows our bodies to absorb the mineral through the skin, which in turn assists our bodies in getting a good night’s sleep.
Studies show that regular salt soaks can work to promote our biological and cellular function as well as our overall immunity and balance our alkaline / acid levels. These salty soaks remove toxins from the bloodstream, with their intensive detoxification properties. Additional benefits include regulating blood sugar, improving cardiovascular health, and boosting circulatory and nerve function.
Soaking in warm water with added bath salts can help to ease various types of pain by taking weight off of the joints and muscles. The act also helps our bodies to heal faster after injury or surgery, as salt offers exceptional natural healing properties. With chronic pain, nourishing salt baths have been proven highly effective in treating various issues including rheumatoid arthritis. The magnesium-rich salt can help to relieve muscle spasms and cramps.
