3 Unique Ways to Sneak Minerals Into Your Daily Routine

Updated: Feb 16, 2023


I'm all about getting creative with the ways we implement health habits into our life. I love minerals because they come in a wide variety of mediums. We can ingest them, apply them topically, absorb through our skin and more! Here are three, unique ways you can incorporate minerals and all the benefits they have to offer into your life! Lets talk all about foot baths, mineral drops in your beverages & topical skincare essentials!

 

1) Foot Baths


  • Don't have time for a full-blown bath, or maybe you live in an apt without a tub . . . enter in the next best option: Foot baths!

  • Foot baths are great because they are quick, convenient, and they transform your home into a little relaxing spa in just minutes.

  • How to foot bath? Simply grab a large bowl, or fill up your tub just a few inches, enough to completely cover your feet and add in your desired minerals!

  • Here are just a few examples of the things I add to my foot soaks:

  1. 1 cup Epsom salts (excellent source of magnesium!)

    1. Ancient Minerals is one of my favorite brands for high quality & pure Epsom salts

  2. Borax Powder (excellent source of boron!) Borax? You may be asking . . . isn't that for cleaning? That's not all its good for. In fact,

the element Boron is an essential mineral in our body's mineral

foundation. Boron is a natural anti-fungal, it can help with the

absorption of other essential nutrients & minerals, and it can help

balance hormones. One of my favorite podcasts the "Are you

menstrual?" podcast has a whole episode dedicated to the benefits of

boron & I highly recommend you give it a listen!

  1. I simply purchase this brand of borax and add a couple tsp to my foot bath. If I was adding it to a larger full body bath, I would add a couple tablespoons.

  1. Mitigate Stress Magnesium Bath Soak

    1. I love this mineral soak by Mitigate Stress! In this blend is a mix of magnesium, potassium, sodium, and carbon-dioxide. All essential minerals for decompression and stress mitigating effects. Its so easy to simply pour into your foot soak and reap the benefits!

If you choose to buy from Mitigate Stress, they have given me a coupon code for all my

clients! Code: LEXIEHAREN will save you 10% at checkout!


P.S. Doesn't necessarily have to do with minerals, but I also love adding a few drops of my favorite essential oil to my foot soaks. If my nose is feeling stuffy I'll add some peppermint, if I'm wanting a little pick-me-up in my mood, I'll opt for some citrus scents. If I'm looking to wind down, lavender is my go-to! You can shop my favorite high-quality & ethically-sourced essential oils here.

 

2) Add drops to your water or juice!



  • This is such a simple way to add minerals into your daily routine. Simply adding in minerals to your beverages can give your body the electrolytes it needs to stay optimally energized.

You can add back in electrolytes in a few simple ways:

  1. Simply add high quality salt to your water. I go for a couple pinches. These are some of my favorite brands of high-quality salt:

    1. Maldon Sea Salt Flakes

    2. Redmond's Real Salt

    3. Crucial Four Icelandic Salt

  2. Add mineral drops to your water/juice!

    1. Mitigate Stress, the brand I mentioned above for their mineral bath soak, also makes amazing mineral drops that you can add to your beverages. These mineral drops contain bioavailable magnesium, sodium and potassium bicarbonate.

      1. I like to buy the MMD travel size. Its concentrated and easy to take on the go.

      2. If they are sold out of the travel size, I will opt for the Master Mineral Drink & simply pour that into my beverages!

 

3) Use topical minerals & skincare products that are full of minerals!



  • Over the last year I have acquired so many more beneficial mineral tools in my wellness toolbox. I am stoked to share with you some of my favorite skincare products that also allow me to help my mineral foundation while using! It's a double-whammy.

  1. Topical Magnesium Oil or Lotion


  1. Topical magnesium lotion has become a part of my daily routine. I love the simplicity of use and I know its effective. My favorite product is the Ancient Minerals magnesium lotion. Magnesium lotion can provide calming effects and aid in deep relaxation. It surely makes my muscles happy.

  1. Saturee Skincare Products

    1. Of all the skincare, I am most excited about this! Saturee is a brand where I initially was purchasing my high quality beef liver capsules from. They introduced their new skincare line this year and it is absolutely amazing. All of the products are made with high quality ingredients that each serve an important role in cellular health and regeneration. For example, the face cream has copper in it. Copper is a super-molecule essential for most every cellular function in the body. Over the years, our exposure to copper has lessened as things are over-farmed and soil is depleted more and more. Any way I can get more copper into my routine is sure to lead to a myriad of benefits in the future. Not only are the products full of precious and essential minerals like copper, they are PUFA free and contain other nutrients such as Niacinimide, vitamin E, CoQ10 and more.

If you choose to purchase from Saturee, make sure you use my coupon code for 10% off

at checkout. Code: LEXIEHAREN

 

I hope this gets your wheels turning about how you can effortlessly work on tuning up your mineral foundation! Thanks for stopping by!


Cheers to you and your mineral foundation!


Much love,


Lex
