(grow your own loofah: seeds from Etsy!)
Showers are not just a way to clean your physical body- they also “wash off” they energy of a day that you have picked up along the way. Quick showers in the am & pm (emphasis on “quick” so that you aren’t dehydrating yourself or wasting water) will keep you feeling refreshed.
A few ways to add power to your shower:
1. HYDROTHERAPY! Blasts of hot and cold will get your blood pumping in the morning to wake up & in the evening to wind down. Essentially, start the day and/or finish the day with a shower that alternates from as hot as you can comfortably tolerate to as cold as you can tolerate in 6 quick cycles of hot & cold. If you have health problems you should always ask a doctor before doing this, as it is powerful! (HERE is more on how to get started with hydrotherapy)
2. AROMATHERAPY! Shower “fizzies” packed with aromatherapy will supercharge your shower. You plop one in your shower and it gets activated by the water, heat and steam to “fizz” essential oils into your bathroom. THESE aromatherapy “shower bursts” are well formulated, with fun varieties. This weekend I’ll be doing a DIY version for all of you so stay tuned!
3. SCRUB! A loofah is a fail-safe way to slough off dead skin cells and boost your circulation. Oils and lotions absorb even better after you exfoliate… so be sure to use a lotion or body oil with as little “toxic” ingredients as possible (preferably none!) so that you get a blast of extra nourisment & goodness after your “power shower.” If you want to make your own version of a scrub in lieu of a gourd, THIS scrub made with brown sugar takes a few minutes to mix and is divine, plus it moisturizes!

I made the bath/shower fizzies for the first time for Christmas. Make sure to wear gloves when you make them, lol. My hands got sooo red when I didn’t. They’re super fun, though.
