If you could spare a little thyme...

Hello readers! Have we all had a good week? 

I succumbed to the nasty January 'bug', which left me at home for two days suffering and feeling sorry for myself so this blogger is pleased to be seeing the back of it! 

My lovely friend Kirstie brought me round some beautiful flowers to say get well soon - here's me really hoping I didn't send her away with a nasty present in return!

However, some good has come from this as I have decided the best post to write this Sunday would be the one that describes a great product that made me feel a bit more refreshed and renewed by the end of the week! 

Radox muscle soak...

Firstly, I would like to emphasise that this is a very affordable product and can be found in most drug stores.

If I remember rightly this 400g cost me between one or two pounds!

One of the main ingredients is Thyme, which you can smell instantly when you open up the resealable flap on the side of the box. The crystals are small and dissolve really quickly in the bath leaving behind a cloudy blue/green tinge in the water and a steam that fills the room with a glorious aroma.  If you have any aches and pains and find baths help ease these I would certainly recommend that you add this to the water.

I found it got to work straight away and it made me think. Would fresh thyme work the same way? SO, I did some further reading and it turns out that using fresh thyme in your bath can actually work! It is also considered anti-bacterial and anti-viral so can help with coughs and colds as well! No wonder I felt like I could breathe easier too!

I think it is time to start growing a little herb garden! Knowing what I have learnt from Thyme has just made me more interested in other herbs and what benefits they may have for people.

For those that have read my mini post today, firstly thank you! Lastly, if you have tried fresh thyme in a bath let me know how it made you feel!

Lots of love,
