I’m obsessed. I’m ashamed I didn’t use it sooner. I mean, peeps be like, “epsom salt for this and epsom salt for that and just sit in a sitz bath.” And I was like, “Yeah. Okay. Epsom salt. Right. Got it.” (Not.) I guess there was a small part of me that just couldn’t understand how an $8 bag of epsom salt could possibly do all of the things they said it could, so I never used it. Until I did…and now it’s my answer for everything: detoxing, pregnancy pains, infections, insomnia, bad hair days…you get it, so get some!

Udo’s oil is a great plant-based alternative to fish oil. It’s derived from flax, sunflower, and sesame seed oils and has a 2 to 1 ratio of omega 3 to omega 6 fatty acids. Your body can’t make EFA’s on its own, which is why a supplement may be needed for a diet lacking in good fats.
