Over 17.5m Aussies Aren’t Getting Enough of This Stress-Busting Mineral – Are You One of Them?

Topping up your levels of magnesium can be life-changing.

by | Jun 29, 2021

The benefits of mineral-rich magnesium in daily life cannot be underestimated. This muscle-relaxer soothes post-workout aches and strains and reduces inflammation, but it also helps improve the quality of sleep and soothes headaches and migraines.  

Surprisingly, the best way for your body to absorb magnesium is topically – through the skin – which is where a lingering long soak in the bath or self-massage can have a deep impact on your overall quality of life. 

With more than 86% of Aussies experiencing stress in their daily lives, taking micro-moments of relaxation are more important than ever before. 

Disconnecting from devices and utilising your bathroom as a quiet space of solace is not only mood-boosting but helps you bounce back quicker from that next-level hike or yoga session.  

The easiest way to fast track a more mindful reconnection with the body is immersing yourself into the natural goodness of 100% essential oils and magnesium from the locally owned and produced EpZen (epzen.com.au). Its range of vegan-friendly, paraben-free wellness boosters is conveniently available in bath crystals, body lotions, body sprays and footcare. Choose from 4 nourishing blends depending on what’s going on in your world: 

Mind working overtime?

‘Relax’ is the perfect blend for you. Ylang-ylang, geranium and rosewood will help calm, comfort and reset your mind to find inner peace again. It’s the best stress-buster to use anytime throughout the day, so keep the body spray within reach. 

Post-workout shuffle?

Soothe’ is your go-to for physical or emotional pain. Ease those aching muscles – or an aching heart – after a challenging day with clary sage, sweet birch and fir needle. This is your mindfulness mood shifter. 

Can’t sleep or it’s the 2 am wakeup?

Sleep’- literally – is what you need. Just like a child needs a sleep time ritual, adults benefit from one too (including no devices for 1 hour before bed). Use this blend as part of your wind-down ritual and if you don’t have one, this is where it begins. Roman chamomile, cedarwood and lavender will lull you off into a beautiful deep sleep. Keep the body lotion close by for any unwelcome disturbances from your blissed-out state. It’s your rest reset.

Aching feet?

They need TLC from the ‘Soothe Feet’ 3-step. A combo of tea tree, eucalyptus and peppermint will revive and refresh with a healing soak, scrub and rehydrating balm. This is the return of happy and soft baby feet, stat.

Nurturing your inner wellness warrior with small and simple rituals, that allow you to switch off outside noise, will lead to large and positive impacts in your life, reconnecting you to calm.

Available to purchase from epzen.com.au , Woolworths, Coles and pharmacies nationally.
