Aging sucks. True story! Two weeks ago today I decided to take a brisk walk during my lunch hour at work. I took off my kicky, office appropriate heels, and put on my terribly unattractive (older than time) walking shoes, and set out for a peaceful walk around the charming and quaint neighborhood tucked away in the middle of corporate America. I got about a block away, and suddenly my back decided to go out. My back went out! Egad!
Aside from being, perhaps, a little acrimonious, I was in shock. Am I really at that point in life where someone asks me how I’m doing and I reply, “Well, my back went out?”
I contemplated calling my boss to come pick me up (whom, by the way, later told me he would have come out with a strap and a dolly… nice.) But, I walked back to the office, hunched over like a lady at least 6 months my senior, and made my way through what felt like the longest day.
That night, I came home to my loving husband, who had 2 aspirin and a bath waiting for me. A bath, I should mention, loaded with Grayson’s Citrus bath salt. The label says it’s an energizing soak… which is a good thing since I was exhausted from all my complaining!
Basics: You just add “several tablespoons” into your bath while the water is running. Wait til the salts dissolve (which was really quick, fyi), and sink into the lovely and soothing (or energizing) aromas of lemon, orange, grapefruit and tangerine. Mmmmmm, good stuff! And it helped!
Extravagance: Did I mention that they added Vitamin E… only the nicest, healingest, skin-softeningist stuffs I’ve ever used!
Imperfections: You know, I always look for the flaws (to give you an honest representation), but really this is what you are looking for when you get a bath salt.
To Sum It Up: I wore heels today for the first time in 2 weeks. I’ve used up all of my bath salts, and I’m thinking I need to give another flavor (I know, you don’t eat it) a go. Try this. Enjoy this.
Oh, and for you folks with skin issues, the ingredients are pretty basic (and I think pretty non-aggravating):
Dead Sea salt; lemon, orange, grapefruit and tangerine essential oil blend; and vitamin E
