Epsom Salt: A Safe, Natural, At-Home Remedy For Sore Muscles, Aches, Pains & So Much More


After a tough workout you often have sore & tired muscles. Epsom Salt offers a great muscle soothing option that you can take advantage of in your own home. No need for an expensive massage- just soak those tired muscles or feet in an Epsom Salt bath and you will feel the relaxation and muscle soothing benefits right away. Epsom is a safe and natural way to ease tired muscles and to get more magnesium in your life. 



For sore muscles, aches, pains, and bruises using Epsom Salt is easy: Add 2 cups of Epsom salt to the water in a standard-sized bathtub (double the Epsom salt for an oversized garden tub) and soak for at least 12 minutes. Its really that easy! The Epsom salt will dissolve quicker if you put it under the running water. Get in and relax those aches & pains away! For human use, the Epsom Salt Council recommends only Epsom salt with the USP designation.

Epsom salt is actually magnesium sulfate, a pure, time-tested mineral compound with dozens of uses. Most Americans in todays world are low on magnesium levels. We just dont use as much magnesium in our daily diets & lives than we used to. Using Epsom Salt is a great way to get more magnesium in our bodies. Keep reading to see all of the uses and benefits of Epsom salt.


Epsom Salt is a perfect ingredient for at-home recipes and remedies for health, beauty, gardening and crafts. I think you’ll be amazed with this natural alternative that has been used therapeutically for hundreds of years, and you’ll see why it’s gaining a new generation of fans looking for a safe, inexpensive alternative in a sea of pricier, over-the-counter remedies. I would much rather use natural Epsom Salt that is inexpensive & effective than a pharmaceutical alternative. 


Health benefits from either soaking your feet or taking a bath in Epsom salt, include: soothing muscle aches, treating sunburn, and removing splinters. For beauty uses from facials and hair volumizers to pedicures and exfoliants, many celebrities – and their beauty teams – use Epsom salt to look their best. You can even use in your garden - tests show that Epsom salt helps produce more flowers and makes pepper plants grow larger. Experts say it can increase harvests, make fruit taste sweeter. Epsom Salt is also great for itches and sun burn!

Done following Monique this is a high intermediate routine. You will hit every muscle group, but not work to failure so I consider this a lighter strength workout with some heart pumping cardio. Perfect for days when you are maybe a little sore still from previous workouts. Monique keeps you moving right along and does not waste any time. Like all the workouts, no fancy choreography, just fun heart pumping core targeted cardio & great multi muscle moves. I received this DVD set to review.

Suzanne Bowen BarreAmped Bounce Workout DVD Review

BarreAmped Bounce 
Suzanne Bowen, 2017


This DVD contains 5 rebounding barre workouts. You can choose one from the main menu or play all. You will need a rebounder with the stability barre and light weights for these routines. Suzanne works out with one other exerciser, who shows advanced versions of the exercises. Each routine starts with a quick bounce & concludes with a quick stretch.

Arms & Abs: (16 min) Exercises include lat raises, elevated bi curls, rear delt fly, tri press, pullups seated on the rebounder using the barre, seated knee drops, toe drops, can -can, and V hold. You will free bounce between toning sets. 

Thigh Bounce: (13 min) Exercises include releve micro bend & raises, releve lower & lifts, front leg raise series, releve pelvic tucks, leaning back & holding on to the barre for stability and micro plies. You will free bounce between toning sets. 

Booty Bounce: (13 min) Exercises include rear leg raise series, seesaw series, and hinged leg raises. You will free bounce between toning sets.  

Cardio Bounce: (13 min) The ladies alternate a fast paced toning exercise with a cardio. Exercises include bouncing, releve squats, side step, hinged booty pop, twisting hops, front to back leg sweeps, jacks, and slalom with a twist. They use the barre to get height to their jumps for some exercises.

Total Body Bounce: (11 min) Exercises include split stance (one leg off the rebounder) lunge raises with rear leg raise & tri pushback, split stance lunges with lat raise, split stance plies with lat raise, plie hold & front raise, plie pulses, bicycle legs lying supine on rebounder, and prone frog leg lifts. There is one break to bounce it out before the core work.

Stretch: (8 min) Suzanne works out alone for this routine. Stretches include quad stretch, lunging off the rebounder hip stretch adding a side bend, ham stretch, standing figure 4, side bend, tri stretch, chest opener and forward bend. 

These are solid to high intermediate routines - follow Suzanne for a more intermediate or follow Jess for a more advanced routine. Suzanne uses the rebounder stability barre in a very unique & effective way in this routine. I love rebounding and found this workout super unique & effective. As always, Suzanne's form pointers & cuing are spot on. Great rebounding + barre fusion routine- unlike anything else I have tried. The rebounder adds a whole new instability to barre work. I received this DVD to review.

After a warm up you will perform 3 rounds of: burpees, jump squats, Mt. climbers, kettlebell swings, plyo lunges, and a cool down. You get a 60 second rest between rounds. 

I rate this a low advanced cardio workout-that definitely had my lungs burning. You will perform 10-50 reps of each exercise. No fluff-just great cardio that will have you sweating! Jody offers modification options up or down for many exercises. I received this DVD to review.

Mighty Organic Beef Sticks: On The Go Protein That Tastes AMAZING



Mighty Organic Beef Sticks give on-the-go snackers healthier high-protein, low-calorie options. And they’re better for the planet too! Oh and did I mention- they taste amazing!! My husband literally said these were the BEST beef sticks he has ever had and saved the wrapper so he could order more. I did get to try one as well - hubby claimed the rest - and they really are amazing. They taste like beef, not processed meat product like a lot of meat sticks do. They are available in Original, Teriyaki, and Jalepeno. They are organic and they are made from 100% grassfed cows. Better for you and better for the environment. Keep reading to learn more. 


These are perfect to take with you on the go. High protein and made with organic ingredients make these the perfect snack to take with you on your next hike, to toss in your gym bag, or share with the whole family! The healthy graze craze continues to grow as more people embrace the benefits of organic and 100 percent grassfed products. As pioneers in the category, Mighty Organic is introducing Mighty Organic Beef Sticks, the first and only organic, 100 percent grassfed beef snack stick, from the same cooperative farmer-owners who produce for Organic Valley.


With five to six grams of clean protein and made with organic honey, Mighty Organic Sticks have 40 percent fewer ingredients than the leading competitors. They are perfect for grab-and-go snacking, those looking for healthier snacking options, paleo-diet friendly, or anyone looking for a better-for-you high protein snack that is ready to grab & go!

Mighty Organic grassfed products are an all-around winner in taste & in health. One hundred percent grassfed beef is more nutritious than grain-fed beef. That’s because grassfed naturally contains higher levels of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), beta-carotene and omega-3s, and a more healthful ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids*. Grassfed organic farms, which have acres and acres of pasture, also help replenish the soil and sequester carbon, improving the quality of the forage growth, which in turn reduces erosion and air and water pollution. Science says that increasing grass-based agriculture could help stop or even reverse climate change.



Available in three flavors – Original, Teriyaki and Jalapeño – all delicious and all waiting for you to enjoy! Grab some and see if you enjoyed them as much as we did! Find a store near you here.
