Information About Sweet Trinity Aromatherapy Bath Salts

Information about Sweet Trinity Aromatherapy Bath Salts
The first product I ever created was the Dead Sea Salt Bath Salts. I created the salt soak at a time when I was in a period of healing my body from the inside out. I researched the benefits of Dead Sea Salts and started soaking many times a week.

There are many benefits to soaking in Dead Sea Salts and I am always happy to hear the reports of how Sweet Trinity Aromatherapy Salts have helped people.
For soaking: I recommend bathing three times weekly, soaking for at least 12 minutes.

As a Foot bath: I recommend adding a cup of Salt to a tub of warm water as a balm for aching feet.
The main ingredients of Sweet Trinity Aromatherapy Dead Sea Salt Soaks include Dead Sea Salt and Epsom Salt. The benefits of each are described below.
Dead Sea Salt: Salts mined from the Dead Sea in the Middle East, are rich in minerals and help draw impurities out of the skinThe Dead Sea is a popular center for wellness and health today, due to the fact that Dead Sea salts have been reported to have the following benefits:
Rheumatologic Conditions – Dead Sea salts can be effective in therapy of Rheumatoid Arthritis, Psoriatic Arthritis, and Osteoarthritis. The minerals are absorbed while soaking, stimulating blood circulation.

Common Skin Ailments – Research has demonstrated that skin disorders such as acne and psoriasis are relieved by regular soaking in water with added Dead Sea salt. The National Psoriasis Foundation recommends Dead Sea and Dead Sea salts as effective treatments for psoriasis. One study concluded that the high concentration of magnesium in Dead Sea salt was instrumental in improving skin hydration and reducing inflammation.

Allergies - The high concentration of bromide and magnesium in the Dead Sea salt can relieve allergic reactions by cleansing and detoxifying.

Epsom Salt: Researchers and physicians report that raising your magnesium levels may improve heart and circulatory health, reducing irregular heartbeats, preventing hardening of the arteries, reducing blood clots and lowering blood pressure.

Epsom Salts flush toxins and heavy metals from the cells, easing muscle pain and helping the body to eliminate harmful substances. Epsom Salts also improve nerve function by regulating electrolytes. In addition, calcium is the main conductor for electrical current in the body, and magnesium is necessary to maintain proper calcium levels in the blood.

Epsom Salts relieve stress. Excess adrenaline and stress are believed to drain magnesium, a natural stress reliever, from the body. Magnesium is necessary for the body to bind adequate amounts of serotonin, a mood-elevating chemical within the brain that creates a feeling of well being and relaxation.
While increasing your magnesium levels, our Soaks also deliver sulfates, which are extremely difficult to get through food but which readily absorb through the skin. Medical research indicates sulfates are needed for the formation of brain tissue, joint proteins and the mucin proteins that line the walls of the digestive tract. Sulfates also stimulate the pancreas to generate digestive enzymes and help to detoxify the body's residue of medicines and environmental contaminants.
I encourage you soak your body and/or your feet on a regular basis to experience wonderful benefits inside and out. For a full description of Sweet Trinity Aromatherapy Dead Sea Salts, please visit:

The Benefits of Aloe Vera Oil

Good morning beauties!

I love using Aloe Vera oil because it feels so good on the skin and the substance from the leaf is so good for us. I have done a lot of research about the effectiveness of Aloe Vera and the healing benefits of using it thus the reason it is a primary ingredient in most of my products.

The top 5 reasons you should fall in love with Aloe Vera are:

1. useful in the treatment of wound and burn healing

2. used to treat minor skin infections, diabetes, and elevated blood lipids in humans

3. can be consumed to ease digestive issues such as heartburn and irritable bowel syndrome (pure Aloe Vera and not the oil)

4. is non-toxic with no known side effects

5. studies show that Aloe Vera promotes the rates of healing

This information should not be construed as medical advice and you should always seek the advice of a doctor for serious ailments. However, the use of all natural products can aid in your healing and we have witnessed the wonderful effect of using products made with Aloe Vera.

Until next time...Be Sweet! xoxo

Remembering Why I Started!

Have you ever had one of those deja vu moments where you sit and remember why you started on the path you are on? That happened to me the other morning sitting in the bath!

Many years ago I started making bath salts with Dead Sea Salts to heal my body. I was ill and I started to do research on natural ways to heal my body in addition to following the doctors orders. I truly believe soaking in Dead Sea Salts and using essential oils helped heal my mind, body, and spirit thus the reason I started making them for others and sharing my story.

Well this week I was feeling sore and tired and instinctly I made a large batch of my Dead Sea Salt Soak with Dead Sea Salts, Tea Tree Oil, and Lavender Oil. Aftering soaking in the tub for about 10 minutes, I immediately felt better and it made me remember why I started making them in the first place.

Natural products, just like natural foods, have an incredible way of healing the body! I love my Salts and I hope, if you haven't already, you have the opportunity to use them and experience what I have experienced.

Until next time...Be Sweet! xoxo

Happy Sunday!

Happy Sunday beauties!

I hope you all have had a great weekend. As for me, I organized my Sweet Trinity Aromatherapy "lab", had dinner and brunch with friends, and contacted potential hostesses for holiday Stella & Dot Trunk Shows. I accomplished quite a bit so now it's time to relax and prepare for the week. 

Now that my lab is open for business and organized, I will be adding more inventory to my Etsy store. I'll be posting here on the blog and also on Instagram about seasonal scents! I can't wait for you to try what I am making. 

Do you plan your week on Sundays? How do you prep for the week?

Until next time beauties...Be Sweet! xoxo

How To DIY Facial Scrub - Revisited

Good evening beauties!
Wednesday and Sundays are usually my facial days. I try to stay consistent and when I get off schedule, the texture of my skin tells on me! Do you give yourself facials on a schedule?

My facial routine is pretty simple and there are two parts. As a matter of fact, I make my DIY facial scrub myself for the first part of my routine! To create a DIY facial scrub at home, you need:

-        ½ c. Sugar
-        1 tbsp. Olive oil
-        ½ tsp. of Fresh Lemon Juice
-        ¼ c. Skin cleanser (any brand and also optional)
Before using the scrub, I steam my face. The quick method is to place a hot towel on my face for about a minute. The longer version is to actually use my steamer. Most of the time, I use the quick method! ;) Do you all use a steamer when you give yourself a facial? (Please share in the Comment section below).
After steaming (which opens the pores and dampens the skin), I gently rub the scrub on my face in gentle circular motions. I spend a few minutes exfoliating paying a little extra attention to my nose and hairline.
After I rinse the scrub, the second part of my routine is to apply a mask which helps to further pull impurities out of the skin. You can make your own mask using various types of clays. I will review the DIY mask process in a separate blog post. You can also purchase a mask made by your favorite beauty brand.
I let the mask sit until it dries and then I wipe off with a warm towel. I complete my facial by splashing cool water on my face which tightens the pores.
And that’s it! All done! By following this routine mid-week and the end of the week, I keep my skin as clear as possible. I wear makeup every day and put oils in my hair so I find that if I don’t treat my face to TLC, breakouts will appear. 
Do you all use scrubs or masks? Have you ever created one yourself? Leave your Comments in the section below.
Until next time…Be Sweet! xoxo
