It’s hard to admit defeat, especially since I’ve done a glorious job of trash-talking up to the very moment of my downfall. To catch everyone up, my dear friend and fitness role model George Flores, FRESH’s Produce Manager, challenged me to get my butt in gear. More specifically, he dared me to race him in a one-mile run, and he beat me by 10 solid seconds. I would have cried right there on the spot, but I couldn’t catch my breath. I’ll get you one of these days, George!
Maybe I will be in tiptop shape by March for the FRESH 15? Visit the FRESH 15 website for more information.
Instead of weeping, I resigned to go home and soak my weary bones and calf muscles in a hot bath. It seemed like the most logical and delightful thing to do. I grabbed a packet of Lavender Scent Wildly Natural Seaweed Powder Bath by The Seaweed Bath Company from FRESH’s Health & Wellness Department. There are a few scents to choose from like Eucalyptus & Peppermint, Citrus and Unscented as well. These little packets should be added to your stocking stuffer round-up!
The Seaweed Bath Co. sustainably hand-harvests wild bladderwrack seaweed off the coasts of Maine and Nova Scotia. Bladderwrack seaweed also contains fucoidan, a potent natural anti-inflammatory, and potassium and iodine, which stimulate the thyroid and help to detoxify the body. The nutrients in bladderwrack seaweed also increase pH alkaline levels in the bloodstream while simultaneously reducing acidity levels in the body and the skin.
They combine bladderwrack with the highest quality ingredients from around the world. These ingredients are both known to be moisturizing and pH-balancing. In fact, many of the ingredients used in their seaweed-based products have been used for centuries by Asian, African and European cultures to improve the skin’s health and well-being. Soaking in a seaweed bathallows your body to easily absorb a large amount of valuable nutrients, amino acids and oils that nourish the skin.
The Seaweed Bath Co. is the brainchild of Adam Grossman, a long-time psoriasis sufferer (and fellow Texan!) who created his seaweed-based cosmetic products to take control of his own irritated skin without the use of prescribed medications or harsh chemicals. Seeking to improve the lives of other sufferers, Adam founded The Seaweed Bath Co. to share his remarkable all-natural products with the world.
For those Freshies that suffer from psoriasis or eczema, Seaweed Bath Co. products are created to help with itchy, flaky skin. For those whose mouths write checks that their legs can’t cash, Seaweed Bath Co. products provide a salt water soak that repairs the ego and might give you the confidence to try again!
