Calgon Did Take Me Away with Epsom Salt


Epsom salt

12 hours standing on a concrete floor.  30 minute drive home.  2 loads of laundry and dinner dishes already in the dishwasher.  My legs are aching. My feet are swollen. My back is stiff and my shoulders are tight.

I’ve never been much on following directions…2 cups in a warm stream of water…I will just eye-ball maybe that was more like 4 cups.

I sink back into the hot water and smell the lavender filling the air. The salt has dissolved and slowly so is my pain.  I rest my head against the tub and I allow Calgon to take me away.

I’m not sure if it was the time off my feet, the hot water or the Epsom Salt,  but my body has recovered and is ready for another day of abuse.
